What we'll do

***RSVP on EventBrite: ***

What is the ideal ratio of PM to Engineers? If you're the only PM or one of the few PMs in a large Engineering team, figuring out how to not be overwhelmed can be challenging. Rio is a product manager at Google who will share some of his experiences working with large engineering teams, and what has worked and failed in terms of delivering great features at scale, and by scaling his role as a PM.

Main takeaways:
- An Engineer as a PM is as powerful as a PM who has a technical background
- Enabling the org to become PMs has the potential to reduce some but not all technical, research inefficiencies
- You succeed with a combination of good upper-management leadership and data-driven teams
