Description

From Product Tank Boston meet-up on Feb. 26, 2014.

What's the right product process? It depends on your goals and priorities. I speak through my experiences at three very different companies: Pixar, Zynga, and RunKeeper, and discuss how each company uses a product process that reinforces it's product goals and cultural values.

WHAT DOES YOUR COMPANY, CULTURE VALUE AND CARE ABOUT?

WHAT MAKES YOUR PRODUCT DIFFERENT FROM EVERYONE ELSE IN THE MARKET, AND HOW DOES YOUR PROCESS REINFORCE THAT?

FUNCTIONAL vs DIVISIONAL ! EXPERIMENTATION vs VISION ! ENGINEERING vs PRODUCT ! GREAT vs GOOD ENOUGH ! INDEPENDENCE vs CONTROL

THERE’S NO ONE RIGHT WAY TO BUILD GREAT PRODUCTS.

YOUR PROCESS IS A PRODUCT. ! REFINE IT. ITERATE ON IT. CARE ABOUT IT.
