Webinar: Product Managers vs Product Owners by fmr Google Product Leader

*** RSVP on LinkedIn: https://bit.ly/3uw5Ds4 ***

*** DISCLAIMER: This event is ONLINE ***

Product Managers come from all kinds of backgrounds. Those who want to pursue this path often stumble upon it by chance or discover it during their well-established careers. If you are one of those looking to make a conscious transition, there are a few things you must consider first!

Main Takeaways:
- Product Managers are strategically focused while Product Owners are delivery/execution-focused.
- A Product Owner is a hat worn by someone on the team during Scrum ceremonies.
- Product Owners who function primarily as Project Managers working with Delivery Teams work in early stages when the CEO can be the Product Manager and the scope is very focused.
- When the CEO no longer has the time, ability, or desire to develop the Product Strategy or make detailed Product Trade-offs, then it’s time to start hiring Product Managers.
- Product Managers need to clearly define the handoffs between leadership on one side and Product Owners/Project Managers on the other in order to ensure a smooth, collaborative relationship.
