Building Products of the Future Within Legacy Systems and Cultures

Join us at the December 20, 2016 Women in Product NYC Meetup!

Lean startup, user-centered design, and agile development have inspired a new wave of digital product experiences and development practices.

However, for many Product Managers that are challenged with legacy products, technologies and development approaches there are many questions, including:

• How do we make the right decisions to move forward?

• How do we prioritize between technical debt and new features?

• How do we navigate being agile in a waterfall company structure?

We’ll be hosting an inspirational panel of Product Managers that will share their stories, challenges and practices when it comes to developing products in the face of legacy systems and cultures. Panelists to be announced.

Discussion will be welcome and encouraged!

Proposed Agenda:

6:30 pm: Welcome and Networking

7 pm: Introductions and Panel Discussion

7:45 pm: Q&A and Announcements

8:15 pm: Networking

Light snacks and drinks will be provided.

Panel Members include:

Joanna Beltowska, Associate Director, Product Management at Pivotal Labs

More TBD
