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.

About Megan:
I am a Product leader who has led product teams in San Francisco, Brazil, China, and Spain. I’ve managed portfolios of products with millions of monthly active users, as well as shipped MVPs from concept to launch for young startups in pursuit of product-market fit on their first funding round. Alongside founders and executive teams, I build a vision and narrative, and then break it down into meaningful work for the product, tech, data science, design, and research teams I manage. I’ve run A/B and multi-variate experiments at scale (80million MAU products) as well as conducted various forms of qualitative research studies from end-to-end.

My product ethos: Great products are born at the intersection of (1) data that exposes a problem or opportunity, (2) qualitative insights that explain the “why” behind the data, and (3) either an appetite or white space in the market.

My product management ethos: Great product managers are relentlessly curious about the needs and problems of their customers, can articulate the ones worth solving based on business objectives, and trust and equip their teammates to build game-changing solutions.

I'm an American expat currently based in Barcelona, Spain.

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.

About Michael:

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.

Many thanks to our sponsors WeWork and XING for making this event possible!
