Product Management West Coast group
We come up with the best solutions when we build on the experience of our peers. People who have faced similar challenges and found solid answers. This way we succeed with our projects faster - instead of repeating our mistakes.
Our West Coast product manager group brings together professionals working with product management and facilitates in depth discussions and open sharing - with guest speakers and the experienced product manager Rasmus Skjoldan moderating each meeting.
Boye & Company provides meeting minutes from each meeting as well as an online forum for members to continue the conversations in between the meetings. There are expert guest speakers at most meetings to provide further input to the group. Guest speakers could be relevant customer cases, analysts or industry standard organisations.
Each meeting will result in a public document as a statement from the group intended to stir public discussion and further advance the field.
This is a confidential forum where experienced product managers can meet, set the agenda for future industry developments, provide feedback and share thoughts and ideas in an inspiring setting.
If you have several years of experience, a broad range of knowledge and your working day is dedicated to product management then you have the ideal profile. Each group is limited to 20 members.
New members will need to be approved by existing members to ensure the right composition.
