EMPOWERED Product Leadership Virtual Workshop


"Leadership is about recognizing that there’s a greatness in everyone, and your job is to create an environment where that greatness can emerge." - Bill Campbell

The objective of this new workshop is to help you create this type of organization in your own company.

We will talk about what's involved in moving to true empowered product teams, starting with the skills and responsibilities of the leaders, assembling the necessary staff and skills, and establishing the necessary relationship with your company's leaders and stakeholders.


This workshop is designed for the leaders, and aspiring leaders, of technology-powered product organizations: the managers and leaders of product management, product design, and engineering.

Please note that this is not an introductory session. This session is not designed for individual contributors, unless you are specifically training for a leadership position. You should have already read the books INSPIRED: How To Create Products Customers Love and EMPOWERED: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Products.

Marty is the author of the book "INSPIRED: How To Create Products Customers Love" and the newly released book "EMPOWERED: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Products."


The session will be conducted via Video from 9 am until 2 pm PDT, for two consecutive days, Monday and Tuesday (please note that this is a different format from previous EMPOWERED public sessions).
