Megan Murphy (Head of Product - N26): When a tech PM builds a physical product
After a decade of building mobile and connected experiences for phones, AR and VR headsets, chatbots, and web apps, I set out to build my first physical product. In this talk, I’ll share how a modern tech ethos - shaped by years of applying concepts like Eric Ries’s build-measure-learn loop, using every flavor of Ash Maurya’s lean canvas, and heeding Mark Baskinger’s advice to use pencil before pixels - has equipped and empowered me to validate a problem in the physical world that I believe to be worth solving, invent a product from scratch, assemble a supply chain and manufacturing ecosystem, and ultimately launch a business and brand around the product.
and as a local hero
Michael Lindemeier (CPO Kartenmacherei.de): Make -and- and buy - why a profound knowledge of current SaaS landscape solutions is essential for Product Managers
Looking some years in the past, companies had to decide if they buy a whole standard software to build up their business or, if their use cases did not match, build something up on their own. That’s where product managers usually came into play. Today we have a complex landscape of hundreds of specialized SaaS solutions fulfilling different, specific needs - new ones popping up every day. What this means to the role of Product Managers, and how this can help to focus your product delivery on stuff that really makes a difference will be covered in this talk.
Believing in fully enabled product teams as a key successor for efficient product development, Michael is driving the product team at kartenmacherei. Before his job at kartenmacherei, Michael held several different product related positions in companies like Bertelsmann, Payback and Xing.
As always there will be drinks, some snacks and room to mingle with other product folks.
