Live Broadcast: Teresa Torres, Vice President, Products, AfterCollege, Inc

Teresa Torres, Vice President, Products, AfterCollege, Inc discusses Developing Product Expertise on the Global Product Management Talk

“In talking with founders, investors, product folks, designers, and engineers, here in Silicon Valley, I’m starting to realize that product management is still grossly under-developed. At many startups, the function, if it exists at all, is nothing more than translating feedback into feature lists, prioritizing that list, and calling it a product roadmap,” comments Teresa Torres.

“I’ve met countless product professionals who are interested in mastering their craft. One of the most common questions I get is, how do we get better at building great products. This is a hard question to answer. What skills should we develop? How much of product success is luck? What does it mean to be a product expert?”

We’ll explore these questions and many more in this one hour chat.

Teresa says, “I’m looking forward to discussing developing product expertise with Cindy and the Global Product Management Talk community. The broadcast and Startup Product events are an excellent platform for discussing important issues that forward product professionals and leaders to guarantee that more big ideas turn into great products.”

Teresa is speaking at the Startup Product Summit SF2 on October 12, 2013 at Broadway Studios in San Francisco which is like Tedtalks for Product excellence.
