Speech: Product management skillset: what you need to become an awesome PM

The product manager should be as a swiss army knife with a variety of business, tech and UX skills. But it’s almost impossible to be an expert in everything, right?  This speech will explain, what critical skills do you need to develop to be a successful product manager.

The presentation answers the following questions:

  3. Junior to Senior PM: how to move from execution to strategizing?
