Marty has had the good fortune of working with many of the best technology product teams in the world. People creating the products you use and love every day. Teams that are literally changing the world. Marty has learned there is a profound difference between how the very best product companies create technology products, and the rest. And not just minor differences. Everything from how the leaders behave, to the level of empowerment of teams, to how the organization thinks about funding, staffing and producing products, down to how product, design and engineering collaborate to discover effective solutions for their customers. For those that have not yet had the opportunity to participate in, or observe a strong product team up close, Marty will give you a glimpse into some of the important differences that distinguish the best product teams from the rest. Join us for dinner, a great talk, and inspiring conversations.
