“At Pendo, we’re passionate about injecting more data and discipline into Product Management. We’re excited to participate in The Product Summit to share what’s working with us and our customers as well as learn best practices from others,” states Todd Olson, Founder and CEO, Pendo.
Todd Olsen will present the workshop, Live the Trade-offs: Interactive Agile Roadmap Building, during Workshop Day on November 21, 2014 at The Product Summit
“We’re pleased to have Pendo as a platinum sponsor of The Product Summit,” states Cindy F. Solomon, Executive Director of The Product Summit. “Pendo represents a best of breed software solution that recognizes the value of disciplined product management practices and this is intrinsic to achieving product excellence.”
Pendo is bringing the data, the insight, and the tools to Product Teams that will enable them to make the decisions that until now they were unable to make. Pendo helps customers create great products. Great products have strong user engagement — users get value from the products and keep coming back for more. Pendo was founded in late 2013 by former product owners that have experienced the joys and challenges of creating great products at companies like Rally, Google, Cisco, and Red Hat among others.
