What we're about

Product Loop is a digital oriented product community, uniting the triad of business, design, and tech. We wish to establish a community for experienced product professionals, who excel at and have the responsibility of crafting digital products.

Product Loop provides an opportunity for Product professionals and their peers to exchange ideas and experiences about Product Design, Development and Management, Business Modelling, Metrics, User Experience and all the other things that get us excited.

Events include talks from guest speakers on topics around product management, design. We're open to companies big and small. We also welcome early-stage technology businesses looking to learn how to get their ideas off the ground.

The Product Loop community is powered by the 1:1 Product and UX mentoring platform https://learningloop.io.
We also curate a bi-weekly newsletter for product professionals: http://weekly.learningloop.io/

Product Loop: Managing Hypergrowth in Product Organizations

Link visible for attendees

Optimizing for speed in a rapidly changing environment
How do you create a solid product organization with solid practises when your team grows from 10 to 50 in a year? When the only thing you know for sure is that you are going to rewrite the rules in a month.

Same game, different rules?
When the need for speed is as crazy high, we need to organize around the realities of the work we need to get done rather than work around the realities of the organization.

Can we still do do product as taught by the experts?
When the founder vision is only 20% complete, you need to work on the remaining 80%. How do we create alignment around product strategy when we don't have time to foster bottom-up ownership? Or can we?

Can we still rely on the advice of our product heroes?
Do we need to break from the teachings of Marty Cagan, Teresa Torres, Melissa Perri, Petra Wille, and all of our other product heroes?
Do we need to break with the dogma we have learned to live by?

How do we handle dogmas such as Stabile teams, outcome over output, empowerment, being missionaries over mercenaries, theme-based roadmapping in a hyper-growth setting that is sure to have transformed yet again next quarter?

How do you handle 30-40 references as a leader?
Does delivery trump discovery?
How do you create alignment around product strategy across a changing environment?

Presenting and articulating design decisions

Growblocks

Great Designers Are Great Communicators
The difference between a good designer and a great designer is the ability to not only solve the problem, but also to articulate how the design solves it in a way that is compelling and fosters agreement. If you can do that, you’re a great designer.

You cannot and will not be able to really succeed as a designer unless you learn to talk to people in a way that makes sense to them because your designs do not speak for themselves.

AGENDA:

  • Intro (and who's participating)
  • Who is hiring
  • Pitching your work by Joachim Blicher from Lego
  • Second speaker: Yet to be announced
  • Breakout rooms - discussions and networking
  • Thanks for tonight
