- Organizing the product organization. How do we define/find/mentor/share work among product managers, product owners, product marketers, Directors, VPs and CPOs?
- Scaling up. Larger companies face product/portfolio issues more complex than single-product market validation. How do we balance competing interests and technology roadmaps?
- Being agile. Scrum, Kanban and DevOps make engineering teams more productive, but don't solve for what markets want - or what customers will pay for. How do product teams serve ever-faster development processes and still keep an eye on the market?
