The 5 Characters of Product Management (and How to Hire for Them)
Product managers are one of the toughest roles to define & hire for, in part because depending on the company & the project, they perform a wide variety of activities.

In this talk, Jason Shen will cover:

- Specific techniques to identify candidates who could embody this character
- How these five characters can help your organization work better with product managers
