Teresa Torres comments, "In talking with founders, investors, product folks, designers, and engineers, here in Silicon Valley, I’m starting to realize that product management is still grossly under-developed. At many startups, the function, if it exists at all, is nothing more than translating feedback into feature lists, prioritizing that list, and calling it a product roadmap."

"I've met countless product professionals who are interested in mastering their craft. One of the most common questions I get is, how do we get better at building great products. This is a hard question to answer. What skills should we develop? How much of product success is luck? What does it mean to be a product expert?"

We'll explore these questions and many more in this one hour chat.
