About this Event

In the early days of software product management, PMs came in one or two pretty standard flavors: super technical PMs with computer science degrees (this was the majority), and some mix of marketers and consulting backgrounds (this is an oversimplification, but not a huge one). Today, PMs comes from all walks of life. On my team today, there’s a former UX engineer, a hard science PhD, and a serial founder. On my last team, there was an MBA, an MPH, and a woman who used to work at NASA. Some of the strongest PMs I’ve ever worked with are ones who made mid-career transitions into the discipline. (I admit, I may be biased — I myself transitioned to Product Management 9 years into my career). As their manager, your job is to detect, amplify, and unleash their diverse strengths.

Main Takeaways:

  • Detect the value in diversity: Help each PM see the full value and applicability of their unique background
  • Amplify unique strengths: Identify opportunities to lean on strengths and build credibility through unique areas of expertise
  • Unleash their full potential: Help each PM find their zone of genius and build their impact and careers through a series of small choices that cheat ever so slightly toward passion and away from complacency
