We’ve all had good processes. Processes that improved collaboration, enabled better communication, and brought the necessary people onto the same page. We’ve all had bad processes. Processes that were so restrictive and regimented that they were counterproductive. They killed collaboration, stifled creativity, emphasized adherence to a process over achieving real results, or generally led to confusion and finger pointing.
We’ve all had processes that worked when the team was a certain size, but no longer worked when the team, or maybe the company, size changed. Finding the perfect balance of just enough process for the right team is nothing short of magic. As product managers, we must interact with nearly every department in our organization, and we find ourselves creating processes to help us effectively build, communicate, and support our products. Our Speakers will share their experiences with their processes for:
Gathering customer (internal and external) feedback
Prioritizing feedback for incorporation into roadmaps
The tools they use to make it happen
