Today the product management community is a robust, thriving community of very intelligent and talented people that are rarely ever content with the status quo and who strive to change their industries and their organizations for the better. We face significant business challenges every day and develop thick skin and laser-like focus – necessary traits for success. Successful product managers have to be smart, flexible, and savvy leaders in spite of the fact, that unlike other professions, there is little academic training for product managers, so we are forced to learn as we go, and there is no industry consensus on what product management is and does.

For the last three years approximately sixty of the industry’s leading product professionals banded together and contributed to the development of the ProdBOK Guide. The goal? To distill a collaborative cornerstone that can be built upon to ensure that the product management profession better supports the needs of the product community at large. Approximately 60 contributors helped to collaboratively develop the ProdBOK Guide. Join us to learn more about the effort and learn how you can help us to transform the profession.
