The Product Group London June 2016

Share, learn and network with fellow Product Managers at The Product Group.

Some topics to expect... 
- Product Management Mistakes
- and more...

Featured Product: Prodigy by the Idea Group

From Bill Gourlay, the CEO of the Idea Group (http://www.ideagroup.co.uk/):

"I'm the CEO of Idea Group, the creators of a product management solution called Prodigy (prodigyproduct.com). I have been a product manager, run product management teams, and also set up a product division for a large global bank, but was consistently unhappy at the lack of support available for our discipline. We decided to do something about that by building a tool that would help to guide product managers through their daily work, assist interaction with their colleagues, and provide far more visibility across the entire process."

Attending is FREE, and so is the food and drinks.

Note: Please make sure your meetup.com information is up-to-date (incl. First & Last names). You will need to show ID matching the name you used to RSVP. Hope to see you there!

  • Bill G.

    Thanks to everyone for their great questions last night, and for provoking an excellent discussion. I hope that we created some curiosity amongst you to take a closer look at our product, which you can do via the short video at http://www.prodigyproduct.com/#!intro-video/fhtba

    Hopefully this will also underline some of the reasons why this occupies a unique space in the market, differing from the two or three other vendor offerings that were mentioned in discussions last night. If you would like to see a full demo, please do let us know and we'd be delighted to fix something up.

    Finally, we published our next marketing article today, and I'd like to thank you for giving us some extra food for thought, which we have incorporated into the piece. I hope you like it!

    Hi all. Great session. Good to meet you all. See you next time.

  • Simon T.

    Thanks for facilitating an excellent session, Ladislav! I thoroughly enjoyed the discussion and learnt tonnes.

    The chat about features vs benefits reminds me of this iPod example:

    "Storage for 1GB of MP3s" vs "1,000 songs in your pocket".

    I seem to remember Apple using something like: "Keep the party going all night". Sounds way better than stats about storage! I also love this quote from Jason Fried: "Here's what our product can do" and "Here's what you can do with our product" sound similar, but they are completely different approaches."

    Build less, but better.

    See you at the next session!
    Simon

    Have a good weekend
