Learning about Machine Learning: 5 lessons for Product Managers

Machine Learning can become either a super power of your product or its biggest user confusion, and PMs can play a very important role in whether it will be the former or the latter case. We'll take a close look at what it means to be a PM for ML products and what they should keep in mind in order to be successful.

Scaling your Product Skills

Description: What PM skills do you need as you grow from an individual contributor to leading product development at a company? People often assume senior product managers simply do the same work plus people management or do the same tasks with more strategic perspective. In this talk I’ll dig into some common misconceptions and look at how to evolve skills to be more impactful as you grow.

Product managers are builders. However to build stuff (which we call products) we need buy-in; we also need to develop products which end users love. How do we make sure that we explain the 'Why' behind every product? How do we make sure we establish an emotional connection with our internal and external stakeholders?

This is an attention economy which lacks empathy. As product managers, we need to ensure we build products by telling great stories which empathise with internal & external stakeholders.

Attention + Empathy = Emotional Connection

I will give you some examples of how to seek attention and empathy by telling great stories. As I firmly believe, product managers are storytellers.

3:30 PM
Tom Ralston, Songkick

Practicalities of using data as a product manager, and how the "qualitative vs quantitative" framing that's so often talked about doesn't provide a useful way to think about what you need as a PM. The idea is that teams should be using data to really help them try to work out two types of problems: a) what problems are meaningful to solve for users, and b) how best to solve those problems, and there are many pitfalls to navigate when you're doing each of those things. With the framing that we've grown our audience at Songkick 5x over the past 3 years
