Join us for a session with Nikita Dyer, Senior Product Manager who has built products with Trello, Knewton, and EF Education First.
Nikita will discuss effective techniques for reaching a consensus with various stakeholders and building strong product development teams. Nikita will also share her experiences working with product teams in Shanghai, London, and New York, and how/why strategies to achieve “buy-in” may differ across organizations.
Identify stakeholders early and be strategic about when and how their input will have the most impact.
Frequently evaluate the overall “health” of the team; especially important on teams/projects where there are no direct reporting lines.
Having empathy in your team is very, very important to long-term health
