Product Management Philosophy
Develop clear understanding of the business objectives at the beginning of the project or foundation of the product, and fostering that continued emphasis on the goal is critical. Allowing that goal to shape the product vision and guide product decisions is the only responsible way to build and monetize technology.
Passion FOR Process
Building process systems that empower the product team to love what they do and collaborate with their peers to build scalable technology allows the product to empower the user. Well-oiled machines improve processes as people and situations evolve optimizes efficiency.
Digital products should empower the user, so I drive teams to build empathy with the user and making their voice the forefront of product development. Ignorance of market research and customer development, as well as decoupling the user from the pre and post-code portions of the agile process is detrimental to success.
Build product teams with high quality tech talent, fostering an environment in which collaboration and problem solving is driving execution. Optimizing their effectiveness and driving efficient collaboration. Empowerment = good. Micromanagement = bad.
