Product Manager or Product Janitor – It’s Your Choice

A session at ProductCamp Boston 2015

Saturday 2nd May, 2015

12:45pm to 1:35pm (EST)

If you let other people define your role and responsibilities as a product manager, you can't succeed in fulfilling all their expectations. You'll do what other people want instead of being successful in your role. This is most difficult when you are a new product manager or are just asserting product management into your organization. This session will review the common roles in an organization and the common pitfalls of product managers and marketers. You'll have a set of techniques for defining your role in a clear and non-threatening way so that you can get more done in your day and career.
