POWERED BY PRODUCT-LED HUB

Charting Your Course: Thriving in the PM Career Journey as a Company' State Evolves
The evolution of a company can be roughly drafted into four stages: Discovery, Growth, Maturity, Decline. Each stage requires different product management skills and activities. Therefore, being aware of the company’s stage can help make better decisions and, especially, set our own expectations about our product leadership role.

Having worked in booming start-ups in the Growth phase, product led organizations in companies in the Maturity and in the Decline phases and mentored early-stage entrepreneurs in the Discovery Luca will reflect his own learnings and provide recommendations on how product leaders can better shape their own role and their team in each phase.

Unleashing the Power of Collaboration: Amplifying Results Through Shared Leadership

Engineering and Product Management are two sides of the same coin. The success of one depends on the success of the other. Therefore, it’s urgent that we abandon the framework where these two roles coexist as separate functions and look at it as One Team, with complementing skills.
This session will guide you through the model used by OutSystems engineering, making sure that Engineering and Product Management are in lockstep with regard to strategy, roadmap, allocation, and execution.
A model of a unified team is a big transformation step and requires a big change in mindset, so we’ll focus on organization and people management, strategy definition, prioritization sources and models, data-driven decision-making, and the key ceremonies that you and your team should implement.

[Roundtable Discussion] Unleashing the Power of A.I.: Navigating the Ethical Frontier in Product Development and Software Engineering

In this roundtable session, we will explore the ethical considerations surrounding artificial intelligence (A.I.) in product development. As A.I. continues to advance and become more integrated into our daily lives, it is crucial to examine the potential ethical implications that arise from its use.

During this session, participants will engage in a collaborative discussion to address questions such as:
1) How can we ensure that A.I. algorithms are fair and unbiased?
2) What are the potential risks and consequences of relying heavily on A.I. in product development?
3) How can we balance innovation and progress with ethical considerations? Through sharing insights, experiences, and best practices, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the ethical challenges associated with A.I. in product development.

Product-Led Growth

Using Product Data & Insights to Deliver Value & Drive Business Outcomes

Modern software teams know the importance of measuring product usage, but product-led organizations go one step further, leveraging those insights to build better customer experiences and deliver ROI for their companies.

Product-led companies break down data silos and use product insights to inform strategy up to the executive level. Data is the common language across the organization, and each department monitors usage and behavioral insights to ensure the product delivers maximum value to the customer.

Join Brian Walsh, SVP and GM of products and platform at Pendo, to learn how to leverage product data throughout your organization to drive business outcomes.

Artificial Intelligence

[Use Case] Leveraging AI for Strategic Innovation

AI is often seen as just a buzzword. But it can become a real advantage if we let our strategy lead the way, not the other way around. To make AI work for us, we need clear goals, a focus on what will really impact our business, and a good grasp of what AI can and can't do. We also need to know our stuff, have solid basics like infrastructure, and measure how well things are going. Plus, we can't forget about bringing in people who know AI inside out.

On the flip side, just chasing the newest tech trends, copying competitors without thinking, ignoring the basics, changing plans too often because of AI, and getting caught up in the hype - these are mistakes we should avoid.

In this session, we'll talk about how to change our thinking to follow the successful approach, not the unsuccessful one. And we'll look at how to use AI the right way, thinking about ethics too. These will be our key lessons.
