Product Management Leadership Games
Rich Mironov coaches small groups of product leaders and product management teams worldwide. So rather than a traditional PowerPoint talk for ProductTank Auckland, we'll mix some front-of-room slides with leadership exercises borrowed from Rich's private workshops. Emphasis will be on (critical) soft skills and organisational dynamics, plus some laughs! Attendees should be prepared to: - Get out of their chairs and participate - Learn how other folks make decisions - Be one half of an emotional executive conversation - Practice being heroes to your non-product team members This will be an extremely popular event, so please ensure that you accept the RSVP only if you know that you can make it, and you update your RSVP to 'No' if for some reason your plans change! About Rich Mironov: A 30-year veteran of Silicon Valley tech companies, Rich coaches product executives, product management teams and agile/lean development organizations.

    What we're about

    ProductTank Auckland is for anyone with an interest in product management. This could include product managers (at large organisations such as telcos or banks, at global software businesses based in Auckland or startups) those who want to get into it, or the generally curious. Product managers have to wear many hats but there are good practices that we can call on to do our jobs better, so let's get together to share war stories and take product management in NZ to the next level.

    ProductTank is a global network of meetups and provides an opportunity for Product Managers to exchange ideas and experiences about Product Design, Development and Management, Business Modelling, Metrics, User Experience and all the other things that get us excited.

    Events include talks from guest speakers on topics around product management, networking opportunities, and a good old-fashioned chin-wag over a beer or two.

    We're open to companies big and small. We also welcome early-stage technology businesses looking to learn how to get their ideas off the ground.

    We now have a NZ focused Slack channel, shared with our friends at ProductTank Wellington (! To join, click here for the signup link (
