• Key Factors That Differentiate High Performance Product Teams

    What is it that high performance teams have that other teams lack?

    Successful product development is complex. It relies upon purposefully melding people, processes, and tools to deliver results. Given the complexities, organizations often lack data about what leads to a successful outcome or the factors that can aid organizations to be more successful.

    The Study of Product Team Performance has six times dug deep to find the data and identify those factors.

    This webinar shares what we’ve learned this year: factors that can increase your product organization’s success, from innovation to product management to team performance. Along with a few highlights of the remarkable insights previous studies revealed. If you are looking to improve your product team’s performance join us to learn more!

    3-5 key insights that the attendees will learn from this session:
    - 5 innovation insights
    - The current state of product development methodology adoption and which method is most strongly associated with product profitability
    - The surprising product backlog tweaks that make dramatic difference
    - 5 key regression analysis findings that are highly correlated with product team success.

  • Silicon Valley Code Camp 17: Introduction To The Lean Definition Process

    If you already got a ticket to the 12th annual Silicon Valley Code Camp, plan to attend The Introduction To The Lean Definition Process on Sunday, 2:00 PM with Malcolm Knapp of the Engineer Accelerator and Cindy Solomon of Startup Product Academy.

    https://www.siliconvalley-codecamp.com/Session/2017/introduction-to-the-lean-definition-process

    Attendees will be exposed to the Lean Definition Process developed by Knapp and Solomon to increase successful product outcomes, facilitate collaborative product teams, and enable effective product leadership and happy product professionals.

    • Learn to make compelling engineering arguments based on quantifiable evidence

    • Learn an effective approach to organizing highly complex, chaotic & constantly changing information and priorities

    • Be exposed to a set of lightweight highly adaptable documentation for capturing complex project information and communicating it across diverse team input

    Volunteer slots may still be available if you haven't already registered.

    https://www.siliconvalley-codecamp.com/

    Town Hall’s capacity limits us to 800 attendees and 12 speaking rooms. Sessions will be 45 minutes with 7 sesions on Saturday and 6 on Sunday.

    Code Camp is a community event where developers learn from fellow developers. We also have developer related topics that include software branding, legal issues around software as well as other topics developers are interested in hearing about. Registration is required and we have not opened registration for 2017 yet.

    When we do open registration, be prepared to pay a small fee this year for each day (we will announce an early bird price). Unlike previous years where we did not count on all registered attendees to come, this year we need to more accurately count registrations as we have a hard limit of 800 attendees.

    Sessions (Saturday and Sunday)

    Sessions (https://www.siliconvalley-codecamp.com/Session) will range from informal chalk talks to presentations. There will be a mix of presenters – some experienced folks and some that may be speaking in public for the first time. And we are expecting to see people from throughout the Northern California region and beyond.

    The failure rate for new products is abysmal! Why?

    Because managing a product – whether you’ve got a multi-product line or a single product business is complex and requires different skills, methods, tools and perspectives at different stages of the product’s lifecycle in order to launch a new product or maintain, sustain and grow the product.

    Achieving product/market fit, understanding the market trends and the competitive space, recognizing strategic partners and the business ecosystem…

    Managing products to success is difficult – it takes a team to bring a product to market but you might be a team of one.

    Just because the tools are readily available to start building an online product, or you’ve identified a problem and a solution – does not mean that the process is easy to bring the product to life, get customer engagement, or launch the product successfully.

    Product Therapy is SUPPORT FOR PASSIONATE PRODUCT PEOPLE,
    PRODUCT MANAGERS,
    BUSINESS OWNERS,
    FOUNDERS, INVENTORS, DEVELOPERS!

    Got an idea for a product and looking for feedback?
    Are you managing a product and hitting up against road blocks and unforeseen obstacles?
    Do you want to test your MVP?
    Are you a lone Product manager in a startup or larger organization seeking support? (or to vent?!)
    You might be an inventor, maker, hobbyist or small business owner

    Product Therapy is an opportunity for you to get support so bring your product dilemmas, issues, challenges, and conflicts, about any aspect of the difficult process of managing, launching, scaling, pricing, packaging, products,
    in any industry, product type or service category – b2b and b2c, hardware or intangibles, as well as the internal issues of internal stakeholders, cross-functional politics and mis-communications…

    We’ll discuss as a group to identify solutions and opportunities to assist you to move forward or you will get one on one attention.

    Come once, or weekly.
