How To Create Tech Products Customers Love
This special workshop is designed for Product Managers/Product Owners, Product Leaders (GPM/Director/VP Product) and Startup Co-Founders from Technology-Powered Product Companies that want to dive very deep into the product roles and learn the leading edge practices from the world's best technology product teams. We discuss techniques from Product Discovery, Lean Startups, Design Thinking, Agile, and Customer Development.
WHAT IS COVERED?
We will discuss the modern product manager and product leader roles in depth, along with the dynamics of a strong product team. We'll discuss how we come up with a powerful and compelling vision and product strategy, and we'll discuss how empowered product teams determine what they need to build in order to deliver business results. We'll discuss in depth the techniques that product teams use to discover and deliver disruptive products, including how we tackle the major risks of value, usability, feasibility and viability, and how we use both qualitative and quantitative methods to address those risks.

The workshop will be delivered personally by Chris Jones, Product Partner of the Silicon Valley Product Group.
