Session Title - Secrets of Highly Effective Product Managers

Focus Area - Product Management

3:25PM - 4:25PM

2nd Floor, Meeting Rooms 4-6


What are the secrets of highly effective software product managers and product owners?


A session to share insights learned having talked to successful, product managers and product owners from across a broad range of companies at ProductPH--a community of Product Managers in the Philippines.


In this session, I plan to distill some of the lessons/insights shared by successful Product Managers who have spoken in past Product PH Community Meetups on what it takes to conceptualize, validate, develop and launch a product, whether in a small startup or a large corporation--with specific examples/case studies in the Philippines. Attendees managing products can hopefully walk away with practical strategies/tactics/techniques that they an apply in their own organization.
