Interested in this chat? Sign up and submit a question! We want to talk about whatever interests you most.

What is the difference between a good product executive and a great product executive? It's not the technical or product chops, but the business acumen.

In this chat, I want you to walk away with:

  • Understanding the importance of making decisions at the business level, not just at product level
  • Actionable steps to receive validation of good ideas without engineering resources to make room for the great ideas
  • Strategies to bring forward product ideas that are needle moving for the business
  • Skills to transcend organizational silos and speak the language of designers, engineers, sales, operations and marketing to see a product from idea to development to distribution and finally scale
