Find Product-Market Fit Faster: Lessons for Product Managers

I’ve been a part of product teams for almost 20 years. During this time, I’ve helped transform rough ideas into real products and bring those products to market. In this session I’ll share great techniques for validating products and features. Product managers will learn how to quickly iterate ideas, validate concepts, and make rapid decisions about what to build.
