Product Managers are from Pluto, Engineers from Saturn & UXers are from Uranus

Product Managers are from Pluto*, Engineers are from Saturn and UXers are from Uranus.... - *The 'object' formerly known as the Planet!

Thursday August 4th 2016
Aconex Offices, Level 10, 250 Montgomery St.

Session approach:
==================
There are a lot of similarities between Product Managers and UXers in how we think and the work we do but we also see things differently. Add to the mix an engineering mindset and you have a challenging mix of views to balance. Hear from a panel of Product, Engineering & UX folks and their secrets of working collaboratively with each other including:
• How they work together as a team
• What works? What doesn't?
• Where are the potential conflict points between Product, Engineering & UX - and how to prevent them!
• How they've changed their approach over time

The panel will take questions too - tweet #<baseMeetup twitter account> if you're shy :) 6pm for 6:30pm start, and food & beverages sponsored by our lovely hosts Aconex. Panel discussion will start at 7:00 PM SHARP !

Panel members include teams from Intel NDG, Credit Karma, Pivotal, and Aconex.

We are very fortunate to be sponsored by Justinmind, makers of prototyping tools for the web and mobile apps. They are generously giving away perpetual licenses ($495 value) to three lucky attendees we will choose at random during the event.

    While it looked like there was just one question left at the end of the evening, I suspect the audience could have peppered the panel with questions for hours more. What was clear from all panelists is the value to everyone of collaboration, and the value to customers of incorporating the other roles' points of view. Thanks to the organizers, the panelists, and Kirsten!
