Effective product management is more than just visiting customers and writing requirements. Innovative product managers possess certain traits that allow them to excel in their roles. While it may seem that some people are just born with these abilities, most have them in some degree and just need to learn how to use them effectively. This session will cover important traits that innovative product managers possess that help them to be successful including specific suggestions on how to emphasize your natural traits, while addressing those that do not come as naturally.


Takeaways:

•Understanding of the key traits of innovative product managers
