Event description
SVPG partner Marty Cagan, author of Inspired, shares advice from his brand new book Empowered in his talk "Product Leadership is Hard."

About this Event

I am VERY excited to host Marty Cagan on the day his highly anticipated new book Empowered launches! Our Diamond sponsor Heap is generously purchasing ebook copies of Empowered for our first 110 registrants!

From Marty: In 2018 I gave a talk at the Lean Product Meetup entitled "Product Is Hard" and I talked about many of the challenges that strong product teams face as they work to solve hard problems in ways their customers love, yet work for their business.

Increasingly, my focus has turned to the role of product leadership in providing the environment necessary for product teams to do good work. My writing over the past couple years has focused on the challenges of leadership, and the specific and critical deliverables that product leadership is responsible for. This work has culminated in the release of the book EMPOWERED: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Products.

In this talk, I will spell out the key leadership responsibilities, and discuss why each is critically important, and share examples of strong product leadership from some of the best companies in our industry.

After Marty's talk, Dan Olsen and Marty will have a fireside chat, followed by an audience Q&A.

Join us for an informative and engaging session!

Eventbrite registrants will receive an invitation link via email the morning of the webinar.
