Event Details

*** DISCLAIMER: This event is ONLINE ***

Managing hardware products for three years at Cisco, and later spending three more years working on pure software products at Zoosk and Pandora, Ross will share his perspective on the differences and similarities in managing Hardware vs Software, as well as B2B vs B2C, products.

Despite a somewhat controversial belief that a good Product Manager is product-agnostic, will perform great regardless of what type of product he/she manages,, we’ll discuss the psychological differences in the work approaches and try to identify what type of product might be a better fit for you.

We’ll also go through several specific examples from a product lifecycle like pitching an idea to stakeholders, product requirements document writing and ultimately taking the product to the market, to provide real insights into the day to day work in each type of a Product Manager role.

Main takeaways:
-How to leverage your background and prior experience to both pass the interview and excel at your job
-How roles differ for a Hardware Product Manager vs. Software Product Manager
-Day to day life of the Hardware vs. Software Product Managers

Product School

Founded in 2014, Product School is the world’s first technology business school.

We provide certified courses in Product Management, Data Analytics, Coding, Digital Marketing and Blockchain to professionals across 15 campuses worldwide. In addition to on-site campuses, we also offer the same courses, live online. Both on-site and online courses are taught by real-world product managers who work at top technology companies such as Google, Facebook, PayPal, Airbnb, LinkedIn and Netflix.

Unlike traditional MBA programs designed for students seeking roles within the finance and consulting fields, Product School’s curriculum is highly relevant for the next generation of technology leaders, with classes offered at a fraction of the cost. The curriculum is designed to fit into work schedules with small classes held in the evenings or on weekends to ensure that both instructors and students can maintain their full-time jobs.

Expect a healthy mix of hands-on projects, group exercises, case studies, panel discussions and a variety of other forums to teach you how to lead cross-functional teams and build digital products from end to end. We also prepare students for product management interviews and enable them to expand their professional network through access to a private community of thousands of people; including alumni, mentors and hiring managers from top technology companies.

Product School also offers custom corporate training programs for Fortune 500 companies seeking to advance the product management skill sets of their existing teams or onboard new talent.

Committed to building the largest product management community, Product School has published the Amazon’s best-selling book The Product Book, runs The Product Awards ceremony and ProductCon, a multi-city product management conference.
