Nate Walkingshaw

Chief Experience Officer

Organizational design: Going from features to experiences

What does it take to truly lead an organization that focuses on the customers and not features? Hint, it’s not just about a product development process! In this talk, Nate will share his journey, which took years in the making, in taking Pluralsight from private to public, from a product team of 10 to an experience organization of 550, and from building a product to developing an open platform.

About Nate
