The Product Perspective on Problem Solving by former Visa PM

Apr 19, 2018 · Santa Clara, United States of America

***RSVP on EventBrite: ***

As an Engineer Sarika used to jump to the question - How ? How do I solve this problem ?

But as a Product Manager she had to change her perspective. Sarika added many more questions before coming to how. The general checklist she follows is :

-What is the problem?
-Severity of impact
-What are our options? - short term and long term
-Communication : Internal vs External

During this talk you'll learn this process that Sarika uses and why it is beneficial to a Product Manager.

Main takeaways:
-Define the problem clearly
-Weigh-in on every option keeping in mind the impact on your customer base
-Build relationships with all teams in the organization
-Tailor your communication based on your audience
-In the end, the buck stops with you
