Communication and Prioritization: Honing two critical product management competencies
Tracy Lasseter, Product Manager @ NurseGrid Mobile

Product managers must become expert translators to ensure that they are speaking to stakeholders in a language and terms that they understand. They must become expert negotiators and planners to properly prioritize and implement the agreed upon path. Tracy Lasseter, Product Manager at NurseGrid, shares how to develop these key competencies, the languages of the people who contribute to a product, and tools that can help make it - and you - a success.

Elise Keith, Founder of Lucid Meetings

Elise Keith, product manager and founder of Lucid Meetings, will explain how to identify different types of meetings and combine them in useful flows that cover all the bases without all the chaos.
