Product is hard.
No question about it.
...But don't take our word for it, join us for Marty Cagan's first ever talk in the Boston area!
It's going to be legendary. 🚀
Marty has been coaching product people for many years, and mostly the questions he gets are straightforward, but occasionally he'll get a truly tough question. The type that doesn't have a clear cut answer, and it's not obvious what the best course of action might be, but can really make a difference in your success. In this talk, he'll be posing these questions, and then sharing his opinions and reasoning. Nothing pertaining to product is off limits. We'll talk about politics, gender, culture and even (process) religion. We'll discuss prioritization and decision making, especially when we don't have as much data as we'd like; handling very difficult people especially senior executives; managing conflict on the team; dealing with low morale; changing company culture; regaining control of your time, and picking your battles. We will also have a Q&A where you can pose your own tough questions.
Before founding the Silicon Valley Product Group to pursue his interests in helping others create successful products through his writing, speaking, advising and coaching, Marty Cagan served as an executive responsible for defining and building products for some of the most successful companies in the world, including Hewlett-Packard, Netscape Communications, and eBay. As part of his work with SVPG, Marty is an invited speaker at major conferences and top companies across the globe.
