Legacy vs Tech Orgs - learnings from a product manager

This event has past

We are pleased to welcome SARAH BATES, Senior Product Lead at National Express.

THE TALK:

How should we be building products? What should we be building? Who should we hire? 

Working in Product we face many of the same challenges and opportunities - how we address these, will most certainly be different.

Product development varies from business to business. And it should. There is no set methodology to ‘do’ product. My implementation of Agile isn’t better than your implementation of Agile - it’s guaranteed to be different, it will be adapted for my business and it will continue to improve. Given we got those hiring decisions right. 

In this talk, Sarah will explore key learnings gained from a career working in product - drawing from experiences in legacy and technology businesses, and the opportunities, learnings and career development provided within both environments. 

THE SPEAKER:

Sarah is a product leader, currently working as Senior Product Lead at National Express. She has worked in and managed product teams for global, household brands, and has dedicated much of her career to building products that delight customers and meet business objectives.
