Join us to hear Marty Cagan, renowned product leader and founder of SVPG, share his unique first-hand experience observing the teams behind some of the world’s most exceptional products.

These are people creating products we use and love every day – teams that are literally changing the world. But what sets them apart? Marty has learned there are profound differences in how these products are created. Everything from how the leaders behave, to the empowerment of teams, to how the organization thinks about funding, staffing and producing products, and ultimately how teams collaborate to discover effective solutions for their customers.

In his talk, Marty will give us an invaluable glimpse into the critical traits that distinguish these teams from the rest. This one is not to be missed!
