Product Managers: Treat your Strategy as a Product

  • Wednesday, Mar 18th, 11:00am PDT
  • Webinar

Having a strategy as a guide for your teams and products is essential; we all know that. Moreover, product managers agonize over how to make these statements brief and powerful. As such, strategy has become a mad lib, fill in the blank word game that often feels abstract and disconnected from your immediate product goals.

In our upcoming webinar, our expert panel will explain the undervalued necessity of treating your strategy the same way you do your products. In other words HOW to set cause and effect metrics on your strategy and WHY this is vital.

RSVP today to take advantage of this free webinar and receive the recording.
