Session: How to be a Product Leader instead of a Product Manager
Product Management is a term that goes hand in hand with developing products. Let's discuss why Product Leadership is the better approach and how everyone can be a Product Leader.
- Everybody can be a Product Leader
- Product Leaders make better products as they enable teams and empathize with stakeholders and customers
- Product Leaders often lead without formal authority and "how" they are doing things is as important than the "what"
- We need more female Product Leaders to act as multiplicators
