Matt LeMay’s book Product Management in Practice has earned tremendous accolades from the product management community for reflecting the complex on-the-ground realities of product work, rather than providing easy answers and oversimplified frameworks. We are so excited to be hosting Matt for an in-person conversation about the state of product management in 2022. Matt will be sharing his insights from working with companies like Spotify, Mailchimp, Bitly, and Google, and will be answering your questions about the practice of product management, the future of our ever-changing discipline, and the specific challenges you might be facing in your day-to-day work.
Matt will share his thoughts on:
The shift from one-size-fits-all ”best practices” to a context-first approach
Why hiring product managers and leaders is broken, and how we can fix it
The ongoing shift from ”data-driven” product management to ”customer-informed” product management
The tension between specialist and generalist product roles
Matt will also be bringing a few copies of the newly released second edition of Product Management in Practice to give away during the Q&A session. This promises to be a truly epic event, and we hope to see you there!
