  1. It's Time for a New Class of Product Manager...Because Something Has to Change!

    Most product teams get everything they can from individual products. But in many cases, it’s not enough to satisfy the organization’s aggressive growth goals and it leaves a huge gap between corporate goals and product initiatives. When that gap exists, “shiny new object” syndrome kicks in and product teams are forced to react to every new idea or opportunity that promises to remedy the organization’s growth challenges.

    • How to break in to Product Marketing and Product Management

      A search of job listings shows many openings require 3-5 years experience in product marketing or product management. If you are not in PMM or PM already, what do you do about that?

      Panel speakers will discuss their paths to the profession and best practices on making the jump.

      Bonus: You will also hear from a 2011 svpcamp attendee who made the leap.
