        • User Driven Product Management

          At my company, the user is at the forefront of a majority of the decisions that I make. I spend a lot of time going through the app reviews on iOS, Android, and Apptentive to extract how users feel about our apps. I then ask for clarification when needed as well as feedback. I would like to share my process for communicating with my users to extract information as well as how i'm able to get users to turn a 1 star review into 5 stars in the app stores.

            • The Art and Science of Decision Making

              We make big decisions all the time. A challenge that comes with being a knowledge worker (and product manager especially!), is deciding things like:

              - What's most important to work on
              - How to structure each day
              - What to say no to
              - Etc...

              It’s overwhelming, and easy to default to making decisions based on the tyranny of the urgent. Come discover the tools you'll need to become a master decision maker.

                  • Name That Job..Get that job!

                    Interested in getting into Product? Or maybe project management is better for me. Business Analysis also looks cool.

                    Product manager, product owner, project manager or business analyst...what's the actual difference? Job descriptions are hard to decipher and in real world work environments it can be even harder to separate roles and responsibilities.

                    This will be a practical interactive discussion about what hiring companies are asking for in their job descriptions, what these concepts actually mean in work life, and how you might be able to pivot between roles.

                        • When Time Equals Success, Taking The Long View On Innovation, By Michelle Judson Being visionary in a rapidly changing world is challenging

                          When Time Equals Success, Taking The Long View On Innovation, By Michelle Judson
                          Being visionary in a rapidly changing world is challenging as some new innovation is eagerly accepted and other innovation takes time for the market conditions to change. Over the last 18 years I have experienced the excitement of building something new, encountering patent infringement, personal tragedy and patience. I have emerged with patented viable products, the right market conditions and a lifetime of lessons.
