  1. Challenges and solutions for globally distributed teams

    How do you work with your geographically dispersed teams? Working in an environment with Product Managers sitting in San Francisco, New York, London and Sheffield, development teams SF, NY, Sheffield and Shanghai I know how much harder it is to get consensus and convey messages when you are not in one room. I'd like to hear about issues encountered, but also what tools, methods and plain tips and tricks people have up their sleeves to overcome these issues.

          • Product Management when an API is your product

            Organisations that take the distribution of their data and services seriously realise that making APIs a product and applying product management disciplines is key to success.
            Lets take time to discuss the role and responsibilities of a product manager when API is your core product.

            Questions for consideration:
            What are the responsibilities of this product manager?
            How do you define what is done by product and what is done by engineering?

                  • How to have a vision and what to do with it

                    Product Managers have to have a vision for their product (if you don't then you're not a PM in my opinion). But unless you're the founder or CEO of the company you'll also need to incorporate the stakeholders' visions. How do you do this and get everyone's buy-in? How do you influence and improve the vision? And what do you do with it once you've got one?

                                • What are the tribes of Product Managers?

                                  Do you handle P&L? end to end Lifecycle or just deployment? Marketing?

                                  As a relatively new discipline, can we formalise the kinds of product managers that we have, to better communicate ourselves to employers?
