Event Details

Jordan will discuss the transition from Consulting into Product Management. He will walk through the key consulting skills that transfer across and those that don't, as well as unexpected areas that will require a steep learning curve. Based on his experience and lessons learned, Jordan will attempt to provide insights on how to make this transition as frictionless as possible.



3-5 Main Points / Key Takeaways:

  • Some consulting skills are important and transferable: analytics, logical presentation of information, communication / presentations
  • Many consulting norms and behaviors must be thrown out the window: politics, powerpoints, attitude
  • There will be a learning curve both in culture, and in how to spend your time


You thought customers were hard to deal with, try dealing with Engineers!
