On World Product Day, we are so excited to have Marty Cagan with us in NYC to speak about the hardships of Product Management & how to successfully conquer them.

Marty has been coaching product people for many years, & mostly the questions he gets are straightforward, but occasionally he'll get a truly tough question. The type that doesn't have a clear cut answer, & it's not obvious what the best course of action might be, but can really make a difference in your success. In this talk, he'll be posing these questions, & then sharing his opinions & reasoning. Nothing pertaining to product is off limits. We'll talk about politics, gender, culture & even (process) religion. We'll discuss prioritization & decision making, especially when we don't have as much data as we'd like; handling very difficult people especially senior executives; managing conflict on the team; dealing with low morale; changing company culture; regaining control of your time, & picking your battles. We will also have a Q&A where you can pose your own tough questions.
