Let's explore the practicalities of establishing a good product management team with Jock Busuttil, in this follow-up to his excellent introductory discussion.

In advance of the discussion, please consider:

- When is the right time to hire a dedicated product person?
- What kind of people do you need in your product team?
- How do you recruit them?
- What should a product team's office space look like?
- How does your organisation need to adapt if it's not had a product team before?

Jock is a freelance Head of Product, author and start-up mentor with over eighteen years' experience. He helps start-ups and larger organisations with digital transformation and to improve their product management practices, including Experian, BBC, University of Cambridge, and the UK's Ministry of Justice and Government Digital Service (GDS). He is the founder of Product People, which provides product management consultancy and training. He is also the author of the popular book ‘The Practitioner's Guide to Product Management’ and the blog ‘I Manage Products’.

We're at Ashfords offices in central Bristol for this one, meeting from 17:30 ready for an 18:00 start. We look forward to seeing you there. Jock, Andrew, Rory and Peter
