The Facebook Whistleblower Is a Pro-Censorship Czar

"I turned to. Cbs to see what was on. And it was this. Facebook whistle blower found the whole thing to be really strange very staged very scripted. And so you have this whistle blower going on sixty minutes and said okay. This doesn't seem right just the way she was answering questions it was she kept on saying i want what's best for the company wants what's best for facebook and i think they're getting in their own way. So that's strange whistle blower the keeps on saying that you actually want what's best for the company that's kind of a weird way to frame it and so then today all of a sudden the whistle blowers in front of congress. That happened quickly. So you go from sixty minutes to congress and forty eight hours thirty six hours not even who put all that together. Is there a democrat staffer. That wants her to go in front of congress and so this woman who is testifying francis how gin. She's a thirty seven year old former facebook product manager who worked on the civic integrity issues at the company. Now mind you yesterday. Facebook was down mysteriously for five or six hours. And there is a theory out there. And i just want to reiterate it unsubstantiated and purely conjecture purely speculative that all of this is tied together that there might have been some sort of algorithm ix system reset within facebook which is why facebook went down for five hours yesterday. Why none of the people in charge of facebook seemed that confused or irritated when facebook went down. Purely unsubstantiated and speculative but it's interesting and it would make sense in a certain particular theory of analysis so francis hogan gets in front of facebook and she says something repeatedly look in order to save facebook from the children in order to save facebook or save children from facebook. We need more government regulation to monitor the political discourse on facebook so basically she is a pro censorship.

Tell us a little bit about what it's been like for you both personally and professionally as such a great question in frankly so pertinent to the time today. So thank you for asking that note. I i think it's really helpful for me to take a step back and really just give some of my own background and what it means for me to be within the beauty industry. Because i think a lot of people don't know that and it's really important to me and it really is one of my true passions. I mean beauty and the beauty business has always been a very big part of my life Since i was a little kid. I've been always interested in beauty. I remember my first lipsticks which happened to be revlon. Super lustrous lipstick silver city pink and toast of new york for anyone who remember those shades. Those are the the best shades on me to pulling clips you know. Pr clips from when i was in high school and that was really looking at at the time it was. You know sitting with magazines and a pair of scissors and really looking at linking beauty and culture and celebrities and tracking the impact. That beauty brands had on culture and leading into my first job outside of college. Which was at revlon where i was able to join a rotational program with the goal of really understanding how to take a beauty product concept to market execution and ultimately success. And i was able to do that for a number of years and then came back after business school into marketing on the almazo brand as an assistant product manager which is still hold a special place for me out. Al may brand which led me into a career marketing and ultimately to returning to the company. Two thousand seven to lead a digital transformation and moving into the ceo role in two thousand eighteen and not only is the beauty business in revlon so important to me but the emotional connection that beauty has with me with probably you with each and every consumer and i spoke about the lipsticks. I remember their names. They're they're certainly so many more that i could highlight. I remember the fragrance at my grandmother wore very specifically she wore nor and it was in this beautiful gold container was actually a hard a hard oil fragrance as well as i remember. You know even you know by team members have talked to me about stories and the products that they have used in their past from the dance competitions when they were kids to skin care routines that they've been passed down from generation to generation and a big focus of mine has always been. How do you utilize these iconic brands and products bring to market in order to really leverage this emotional connection that we can have with the consumer because ultimately what we do at revlon is.

"You know it's so funny. It's i just got into the event. Seen in the circassian had time to start watching the stuff that you were doing right like i was a product manager at megaphone and really started to watch yourself but it's so hard to carve out time in just as a starting to dig more into this injustice. I started to find more time. Everything went digital right. Everything went online rather instead of impersonal bum. Because you run a good show with all the things that you guys do And it's i think it's such an important thing that people watch like soda plug at the beginning like edison research just so many cool things and i think the infantile is one of the most unbiased views of audio than it has a great lens on podcasting and what listeners want and the crazy part about it is like was not easy stuff to do. And sometimes that's not dated like an advertiser campaign wants to do so. You guys built this survey and research company. That is doing the things that we need that we don't always like. We can't always like foot. The bill to the advertiser the things that people should be investing into hand growing because it just helps us all view the landscape. It doesn't push anyone specific narrative. Yeah i mean that's the thing. I'm not a a podcast who dabbles in research. I'm a twenty five year survey researcher. Who loves podcasting. And we've been doing infantile since nineteen ninety eight. It's still. I think the gold standard in terms of the kind of currency research that podcasting looks at streaming audio. It looks at and so on. It's done to the most ridiculous and ridiculously costly standards in survey research it's It's a telephone based survey which has a much much higher response rate than anything online. It's over half mobile phone executed to match statistics in the us about who has mobile phones

"We're gonna be talking about google contact center. And i'm not just saying this because you're here on an is honest truth. I've been hoping one in this composition for a long time because our history. If you go back far enough is rooted in alexa. Google assistant and the voices and spirits. And we've been working in this all contact center environment and customer services for a while and then we see. Google released this kind of suite of tools. The seems to have in some parts from history with with google assistant and all this kind of stuff in very similar technologies. and we've been been exploring it for awhile and excited to see where it goes and what you're up to so thank you much for joining us citing citing. Yeah there's a lot of history there with assistant and yeah we can talk about. It's it's an interesting story but it. What's what's interesting is that it's really exhilarating in the last two years. It's been pretty pretty impressive. What we've been able to deliver and really happy to release a led technology now until it's all coming together and we're seeing great results so happy to cheryl that nice. What's what's what's who is it. That says underwent a plan comes together is bigger is gonna plan comes together nicely. Well well on any join those. So you the head of compositional nine contact center at google cloud jonah. Tell the people tune in a little bit about what the rule is what you do on google cloud and how that relates to i own the product the product suite basically. So whatever touches conversational. I for google cloud which is now set of a set of product so some underlying technologies like the speech to text. Api or text to speech api. Some of the amelia technologies that we have but on top of that really. What's interesting. is the various products. No dalek show. For cell surrey's channel bots voice and chat the agent assists to help human agent do their job better and getting sites. And what's going on in real time as they were talking to customers and the latest one is insights which is coming verviers soon which is about understanding all your contact center and everything that's happening they are so it's kind of a product suite under the umbrella. Ci and yes. I own that. I have a team of product. Managers that Do a job at delivering on those products from helping drive a change in the market with this nice so i was just trying to put the lincoln in lincoln. So you mentioned the Some of it has a history with google assistant. Let's unpack that a little bit. So where i come from. And what relationship. If any have with google assistant technologies it started about four years ago. I think some somewhere around that where we did assistant actually did an acquisition of a company. Api and the. I was A tool to help people build better. Google assistant interactions turned out. That in google cod. We were really interested with this technology and the cloud. Google customers actually started using piano the i to build bots for arna a prize and it became dialogue so and so we started planning a little bit working toward more entreprise use cases with alec flow as as assistant was working on their own on their own path and were sharing a lot of the nfl. You underlying the technology but as time passed we so much more traction in the enterprise and had to separate ourselves a little bit in terms of how you manage the the system itself and elliot's fairly common but the system you know the the designer the interaction the web hoax infrastructure the security level privacy that we could provide with allah flu can a diverse and about i would say about two years ago. We started embarking on a new journey toward larger on it so we had their early over. I think we have about one point. Five million developers now in dallas so signed up but we saw that big move award. Large large companies like verizon and likes that wanted to have a lot more flexibility and being able to handle more complex. Use cases with their varietal agents Migrated toward what we just launch in. General is but at the same time we expanded toward agent assists and insights we added to the portfolio so the history starts at a piano. The i four years ago. But i think they're somewhat of a split about two years ago to address the large enterprise cases those use cases and so for those who you mentioned. It's this this dialogue floor the cx was created. There is agent assist olympics and insights. Those are the those are the the full men compo- insects out yet but inside his common. That's right isn't it. Yeah so. It's a early preview right now. It's coming on in in In preview the states kind of bit is a new term. Like we don't have alpha beta anymore. We have previews and j preview previews coming out. I think in the next month and now it takes care is incites is no analysis product per se. It is it is inside. So floyd assists on sites had the three main main products. And i'm accents. Okay then so. Donald flows has been used a lot for goodness actions as well as chump dot says wella's contact center etc for those up in the day a more than likely have experienced dialogue floor in some shape or form. So what is it. The drove the need for dialogue floor. Cx whetted cx come from. Sussex is more graphical. It's it's slightly different to. Es what's the history. Yeah that's actually very important. So essentially asks is basically dial for the daleks with everybody knows that the prior version she will that was meant to build simpler interactions. So one or two turns. Maybe three turns if you if you really need to go a little deeper but some people have called it like slot failing type of bots little bit of that no s something getting tencent and entities and do something where the work or cloud function fairly simple. But when you talk about larger apprise they need to handle much more complex use cases longer. You know five. Ten twelve fifteen turns in conversation or you know things that lasts for two or three minutes on the voice side and being able to handle that without floor essential was very difficult. Because linking intense between them. The nfc between intense was a little difficult to do and the visual builder was a big improvement where you can see a complete flow manage the transition in dragon drop. Ui all without code was really important to a lot of customers but it really doesn't stop there Dallas came from a need for better predictability in spending for example so the pricing model is different. Secession based rather than a turn or fifteen second incriminate. It has a skill ability Capabilities that are much higher so delicacy. Excellent handled forty thousand intent in a single implementation issue. Compare that doug. Flu central two thousand ten. You can have mega agent on it. Which allows you to go to twenty but cx with forty thousand and ten and we have customers that are in the many many thousands fifteen seventeen thousand intents so it does happen that you need this kind of skill. It also has a lot more features toward ivr's when you used alpha essentials. It's unlikely you're going to replace your vr and hence your vr with. It's more about knowing if you think about assistant. Its interaction with smart device.

How You Should Be Protecting Your Brand with Moomal Shaikh

"Thank you so much joining me. Here mama We're going to talk today about brand safety at the article. I wrote a little while ago was brand. Safety is here. let's use it. And you and i have been talking about brand safety and conceptualization all the great things in advertising for a long time. We've been working together in in different formats for a long time. But i wanna highlight you hear your from oracle moat your senior product manager on a team. That really digs into these teachers. You're pretty much an expert on it. And i think that what you can explain to the audience here and what we can go over communicate extension because i think a lot of us in the space in podcasting are kind of brought up from podcasting into advertising whereas i think a lot of other mediums. Like what i'm realizing is that you could hire an advertiser in another medium and you could from digital spy. And then they can move over to digital video or programmatic is transferable between them. Podcasting is different and a lot of these things that we take for granted and other advertising channels are either a little bit more nuance to get started or things that aren't commonsense till out of the space so let's kick it off by brand. I'd love to hear what you define brand safety is like what's really important about it. Yeah absolutely brian. Thank you so much for having me. This is great. I love your newsletter. A so informative and i think it's a really important part of educating the ecosystem over all the good news says audio is evolving so all the true education we can get out there and somebody to dig through all of the research. Nash put stuff together in a digestible format. I think it's gonna help though. Full ecosystem every player across the board. So a i'm a fan but yeah brand. Safety is definitely a very important one. I absolutely love audio. All things audio. And i know you and i have spoken about all things from podcast. Measurement brand safety the opportunity than the dangers of things with within our ecosystem as well which which i think is always really interesting so i think just starting off with what brand safety means. It's interesting because it's oftentimes just considered key words that should be avoided and certain genres many get full categories of things that are completely avoided and what we tend to mess as not just an ecosystem of advertising but more so a society is that when advertising does not fund these stories when you have the short sighted approach towards france safety blocking key words or refusing to run with publishers. Who might be telling sure thing talking about things which are controversial but really important stories to be told you ultimately hurt journalism so brand safety right now. I think still a lot of work that can be done and has to be a little bit more thoughtful. We're not quite there yet. And one comment. I will make more about this and we can. Of course keep continuing the conversation as well. But i think for displaying video. We've we've definitely had some really neat. Innovations in the space is an industry. So we've done some really cool stuff but there's no denying that certain things that we've done have actually hurt the consumer experience and it's really created a trust deficit for online content whether it's social media whether it's reading articles and right now in the podcasting space. There's almost like this loyalty. And trust and most publishers have moved into podcasting to be able to create that connection of trust with their audiences so brand. Safety is a really important one because this is something we can control to make sure that we're protective off the medium and we don't end up ultimately hurting not only journalism but also just the experience of listening to a podcast. Yeah yeah and so in other mediums. Do they Brand safety do they take. They take the tax on a page or they take the information that they know about the website domain and they make decisions based off of it and it is that accurate. How it works. Well it's it's interesting. There's a few different ways and we to brand safety at oracle moat as well but just kind of keep it a little bit more informative of just what's in the industry right now. There's definitely these keyword block lists that are going around where there's words like knife on there. Which means that all recipe pages could potentially get blocked as well. There's words like that gets classified as adult content whereas that is so much mom content to and you're cbj brands. If you're not going to be serving around mom content than you're missing key demographics for yourself. So there's definitely been a level of just throwing out the it's kinda comes from like a fear based approach of like. Oh my god. We can't have our ads running against any kind of content. So be more careful. But but i think there's there's a lot to be learned there so one of the things that we focus in on just to kind of talk about this from the standpoint of why we care about it so much and where we're hopefully being a little bit more mindful about it is that you have to understand the context of the text so not just was the keyword on the page but how frequently did it show up on the page. What were the corresponding words. What other words. We're on the page. That can truly tell you what. The content is in the context of adipose digest. Did a specific word show up. One other thing that we've also heard of in the podcasting space is just doing brand safety based on the description of the yet the no. It's an absurd to because it's like okay. So i could write these notes and say like this is a very brand safe podcast and then i could talk about whatever i want. And there's no visibility into that the hopefully the transcriptions of these podcasts and having a really strong algorithm to figure out will not only provide advertisers with the tools. They need but also publishers with the ability to monetize a much more effective way and not have content unfairly

The main am station. It was a wonderful experience for the most part. I saw kaepernick kneeling i the warriors when titles. I got to go on the radio every day. I created digital content. But i didn't see a path forward for someone like myself who was twenty seventeen. I was twenty eight years old. I wasn't going to become a radio host. I wasn't gonna be on tv. And i didn't see enough opportunities and saw a lot of really good free agents on twitter and that's kind of how i stumbled upon blue ir but Yeah my background is really creating content for older digital media platforms. And were you like talking head on the radio. Where you're like a court correspondent like bose kind of your role way more correspondent. I came here in san francisco. Be at the warriors games calling in kevin. Jones live from game six of the western conference vitals. Kevin give us the mood. It would be five ten minute had sometimes team not just the update guy so i got to show up my personality. I wrote digital content. I was tweeting all the time And just treating you making better content. For came we are the most of the radio host For my age group which was articles about the warriors tweets about the forty niners. I was giving kmby. Are that brand name digitally. I wasn't getting rewarded for it and that really pushed me to found blue wire. 'cause i thought i was actually giving more wrong to the radio station online and wasn't getting paid properly short. Did you feel like you had a brand like where people obviously wouldn't recognize you on the street Because they only heard your voice today. Would you be like a bar like. Oh i totally know who you are times. Nothing crazy but you know. That's really what they found. Blue stems from dairy. Is that person in san francisco. He had a warriors podcast. I would getting drinks with him. If people were literally coming up to him and dabbling in sam. I love light years. Love what you do on twitter. It was up one of my a ha moments before i came into company. Is that twitter. Influencers in sports are so undervalued beat reporters for newspaper are kind of going out of style. In my opinion it's a it's a necessary way to get facts and information but Radio hosts are being replaced. In my opinion my twitter influencers youtube post snapchat users who have built communities of people. Yeah i think it's fair to say i have by own brandon. We have one hundred podcasters. I know we're going to get to blue i They have their own brands. And i think that's what makes us different. What's the world's going that way man. It's niche you can be this fantasy football funny guy you can be nerdy a little on the browns. Anyone can pick their lane right now. And then from the radio you went to go work at facebook on like content strategy. What kind of content where you strategizing on. Yeah it was on. The business helped team work out of building. Sixty one in menlo park so anytime. There was a new product launch across functional team facebook. There's a product manager. There's a marketing manager. There's someone who also writes help contact when a user gets the pay what is and that was kind of my role. It was definitely a lower tier. Get your foot in the door at facebook. But i learned a lot about scaling and how the task and project management and just it was a even though. They're not in the news in a good way. The culture they're working there was pretty good. People respectful a challenge each other in a polite way. I was coming from media where people throwing dictionaries at each other in the room. People were getting fired left and right backstabbing each other. Facebook actually gave me a little bit of hope as weird as it is saying this big evil giant stealing all the ad revenue move fast and break things but working inside. That building collaborated with people. Who admired and it kind of gave me the wings that eight. I can take some elements of facebook. Mix it into a sports media company

You're logging campaign to promote multi factor. Authentication nationwide us also implemented a wide variety of it projects including an internet and help desk for eleven thousand end users. Patrick is an armed forces. Communications electronics association lifetime member born and raised on us military bases and has authored and co authored multiple books including hack proofing lennox a guide to open source security so a fantastic guests with us today. I'm excited to pass it off to patrick here in just a moment after we review the agenda so today we will touch on what is security plus Patrick talk about the baseline cybersecurity skills. The job roles and growth indicators. We'll talk about the differences between s wise zero six zero one versus the five. Oh one and kind of some of the updates. There will talk about the exam details and then as mentioned i will pass it off to patrick for questions. So feel free to submit those questions using the qna panel At anytime so with that I'm going to go ahead and give give the control over to patrick here to get us started. Thank you everyone. My name is patrick lane. And as thank you for introducing me. I'm the product manager for competition cybersecurity certifications as a director. I work a lot with the industry and within comp tia in to ensure that our exams are meeting the needs of the industry security plus as one of our largest certifications of all comp. Tia in fact. It's our number one certification and so one of the reasons why people are coming to security plus is because of the skills that it offers and the fact that employers are hiring people who have security plus social security plus will help you get a job in it and cybersecurity so when we look at the certification we have to remember that security plus as an entry level certification exam it was released in two thousand two and it's updated every three years it assesses the baseline or core technical skills required to secure networks software hardware devices essentially it teaches you the basics to securing anything that's attached to a network or the internet. It's a broad range of cybersecurity skills as you can imagine. A any skills are used for high performance on the job so people are coming to take security plus because it proves that they can do the job and employers will know that they could get the job done so the it certification in general is very valuable also security plus appears nearly ten percent of all job ads in the united states and right now sixteen percent of the entire workforce has security plus and we have millions of people who have taken our commttiee exams around the globe. In the last three years. There have been a lot of changes in cybersecurity. Probably all aware of the industry continues to grow their continued to be more jobs available. There continued to be not enough people to fill those jobs and in fact in some cases employers are looking to icy certifications employers are looking to it certifications in lieu of a college degree. Four jobs. That are hard to hire for. They would rather hire someone with the bachelor degree and assert if they could but in this day and age or enough phenomenal time of human history.

How To Make A Name For Yourself As A Junior Product Manager

"Even if you're a new product manager the chances are great that you have something amazing going on to be hired as a product manager in the first place that means. You're some kind of unicorn your interesting and accomplished with lots of skills and a resume that has compelling experiences an impressive educational background most likely and diverse interests and skills. But i'm going to talk about something different. We're all unicorns as product managers unusual and rare compared with other roles in the company even in life. But we're all still different from one another obviously so. What color is your unicorn. And what i'm talking about is what are your particular talents. Aptitudes and strengths that differentiate from other people even other product managers now. We often use the concepts of strength. Talents aptitudes special sauce superpower to mean roughly the same thing and that is the way that you see the world were act within it. Think and so on that are kind of unique and unusual to you and special and often. These comes so easily to you that it's hard to believe there's anything special about them. I always think about people who can draw and people can draw and think that it's pretty easy to teach other people to draw because they just show them how they learn to draw but the fact is. If you're somebody like me. Who really has challenges. Withdrawing doesn't matter how easy it was for someone else to learn it. They can't teach me how to draw. I just can't learn. This is something that i know about myself. I've tried multiple times. The fact is that usually you're aren't actually the best judge of your special talents. Because they seem so normal so obvious to you like the drawing talent for somebody who can draw now. Often were very aware of our weaknesses. Like i'm very aware by weakness as being able to draw very well. When i say strengths in this context though i'm actually using that as a technical term meaning the clifton strengths finder assessment. It seems to be a meaningful assessment of a person's strengths. It's definitely more meaningful than something. Like the myers briggs type indicator for example. And so. i'm going to talk in this episode about how to find out what your strengths are in this context of the clifton strengths and then how to make use of your knowledge of your strengths. Which you probably don't have if you haven't done this assessment yet to figure out how to make a name for yourself.

Revision Host Maurice Cherry Interviews Danny Shaw, Director of Digital Design and Branding at Brandshare

"All right. Let's get to the interview this week. I'm talking with danny shaw design educator located in new york city. Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are and what you do all right. Thanks for having me. I'm danny shaw. I'm a design educator. Most of the time also product manager when need to be a project manager as well and at the co- at the end of the day. I'm still a designer multi multi-disciplined design of course across the digital space. Okay how has twenty twenty one been for you so far. Twenty twenty one i mean. What are we with thirteen days. Then will far personally has been fine. You know but just looking at the world around me. You would be hard pressed to say that right but personally has been fine so far. So i'm grateful for that How was last year. I know you know the pandemic really kind of turned everyone's world upside down to some sort away. How did you get the year. Last year was a lot. I think a lot of people was ally of me personally. A lot of personal relationships it greatly impacted things for instance my grandparents who visit my grandparents all the time multiple times throughout the eddie live atlanta. I have not been able to see them. And that's really been a tough pill to swallow on person aside and not being able to see other relatives so that's definitely been hard but then which is probably roundabout way on the professional side. It's it's been probably one of the most busiest of hat professionally. A lot of business in the landscape changes so fast rapidly where the digital acceleration accelerated even more than the pace that it was already at which impacted my inbox in my email. People me up for advice and counsel and job. So it's been a mixed bag is definitely been a mix. Let's focus on work for a minute here. You're the director of digital design and strategy for a company called brand share. What does brands share. Do all right. So shit is e commerce marketing company in for a lot of people who may not be familiar with that concept and idea. We work with a lot of. Cpg burns consumer packaged goods such as emmons but if a lot of the packaging goods that we see on a regular basis as consumers so we work with these companies in regards to the marketing strategy. Introducing them to the market gaining insights and data on these new products that's being introduced to the market and we partner with them on their strategy and execution and how the scale they are offering to the audience at large in a nutshell. It comes across multiple channels digital in person shipping. We do a lot of experts. You things as well so Touch on a lot of areas with these brands trying to get as far as being the partner between the brands and these new products. That's trying to the market. In services and reaching that specific audience that the china targeting reach for their respective products. How did you first get started there at the time. I was transitioning from a position that i was working. At in north carolina as product manager and at the time there was some organizational changes. And i was looking in north carolina and and doing that and just going back and forth between new york and chronic to get my fares in order and iran ran to the person who became my manager So we just ran into each other. We used to work in the past at time. inca essence. She just told me she was working there. She was she just started. She was trying to build a team. She was looking for some freelance designers and asked me if i would be open to discuss it and i i'm open to discussing. I was just transitioned from the last role and said hey you know this might be something of interest for me. While i'm transitioning to china figure out the next and then it just happened to work out. Well we worked well together. I've worked with the rest of the team. And i'm working on the designs and floor the digital initiatives and then it just kind of kept going from there into full-time role and then may stand with the company and so forth. What does the team. Makeup look like autumn. Agean you've got designers because you mentioned design but do you work with so i work with everybody. We work with everybody. So i have Outside of me to other designers on my team i work with the vp of marketing. A record the bp digital. We're we're not. We're about fifty. I'll not that big. So we're about fifty person staff based in new york and of pennsylvania so i pretty much everybody to chairman of the company as well That the president. It really depends on the project. What's what needs to be done. You get to intimate environment. So i kind of get to work with everybody account managers and so forth as well now given that the company sizes is so small like what's a typical daylight now because i would imagine you all are not able to get together in an in an office or you now while the pennsylvania offices so they are all the way the to set up a lot of the new york office we are. We're all remote right to be clear. And we were based in midtown manhattan midtown manhattan but The pa office depending on the circumstances on what might be needed. Maybe like a photo shoot or something like that. Some members still going to office but for the most part is still pretty much remote as well. So yeah but a typical day. Nowadays is really. Just you know looking at Obviously out calendar in the before just trying to coordinate on the bear. Risk projects and initiatives looking at tickets. You know gotta look at these tickets to see what's to was the status of status meetings just to kind of make sure that we're on track with a lot of things calls a foul benders looking at roadmap. There's a lot of. I would say a lot of time. Put was president planning a lot more so than in the past so so to speak. It really varies. I really wouldn't even know what to say. What did with low but my on a log. I'm pretty much aware of what my day is already gonna look like just because i leave when i log out. I just see what. I have lined up for the next day. So usually it's a mix between meetings. Some our collaborate with the design team once needed as well as account manager for any new requests checking on the status of ongoing projects as well touching base with the vp of digital. For any other items. That might be down the line sometimes. I am checking in with some of our dev engineers team on the status of things as managing few about digital initiatives and ecommerce sites. Yeah it really ranges mountain towns. I'm looking at analytics in number. Metrics is to see if you know some insights in in regards to the strategy. And make sure we're on pace. We're doing the right thing. There's room for improvement in always looking for some wounds improvements as well so it really varies. Throughout the day. Monday tuesday could be two completely different. Days does sound like a lot. Yes it's it's cool but yeah it can vary a lot. Have you had to adopt any sort of new like strategies or workflows over the past year. Yeah sure well. They tend to crack jokes on me. Because i am like the uae. Try to organize one. You know being a project manager and in the past and project management roles a really try to align and keep things as organiz as feasibly possible. So i think i've definitely had been allowed strong advocate for that. Not just for myself but across the team especially during kobe right so that one thing that be really just had to really make adjustments for the communication on big on communication. I think a lot of not just designed problems. I think a lot of problems in general could be resolved if we communicate elopement so readily had to be strategic in how we communicate and open up communications to help foster solutions especially now that we're not all in this together we can't just walk over to someone and so forth so the communication was definitely gonna be safe there and also iguanas when everything for his hidden in in the world changed right before. Is i do think aloud people kind of know what to do right. So we worked in mit working past normal times and things like that and i think for me was at a place where it had to be diligent about. Okay shut off. There's only so much you can do. And i think not just for me. A lot of people had to make that adjustment as well with the state of the world. Yeah i know a lot of think. It was last year right around the time that the that the pandemic happened. Or the the lockdown started to happen. I was talking with a lotta people for the show who they had either just started a new job in like now it's day for and their mentor. Work from home continually or they're having a tough time to transition from being in the office to now having to sort of work in this synchronous sort of fashion right. And i will say to me. Just because i've had roles in the past where i've worked remote merola north carolina. It was a big remote work environment. Culture prior i would go into the office but it was nothing to see a member who was working remote that day for various reasons. It was very flexible. People have kids people have health issues. We worked with teams across the country. Kind of remote teams across the country engineer so it was never never felt like everybody had to be all his so for me. I was comfortable already transitioned into a more remote environment but this has been the most. I don't know if this is the most remote. I just to show. Has there been like one thing that you've gotten that's really helped you make that adjustment pretty. Well bob meditated. On is i. I really got into a meditation a bit more. Just read different philosophies at least for me just trying to make sense of everything that was going on you know i. I don't have the head. Space is the head. Space app was very very helpful. Helped me sleep more consistently in and things like that. We all just trying to figure out what works for us right. I didn't feel i needed. I wasn't really looking for anything. I was going to make me a better employee anyway. On it I think i was more concerned with was going to help me maintain some schmidt to help during all this time. Yeah so like when it comes to working on a new project or with a new client. What does that creative process look like with you being the director strategy. I know you've got the team under you. What does that sort of process look like from start to finish well. It really varies. Because the relationship that we have with declines it changes in some cases we are more or less facilitators and creative may already common just working on a strategy how to execute it for them and what are the proper market in digital media channels so to speak and then other times. We are developing in design in house. And when that happens of course that's when the standard procedures. What's what's the goal was the objectives. What are we trying to achieve was the demographics that research behind it first before we start opening programs right trying to get an understanding of what the client needs. What goes let's the. Kpi was the measurement of success prior to all of that and then basically looking at our offerings the now tools and resources to see how we can best executed across the board. It may not always be digital 'execution it might be exponential execution might be Just some inserts in getting them the scanty oracle's taken you know micro sites and things like that might be a newsletter campaigns and stuff like that so it does vary but i think we start each project just trying to warn just get an understanding of what are the key goals and objectives and. How do we facilitate that. That making sure that we have the right information to go about executing properly across creative across strategy and course execution as well

Getting Women Excited About Tech with Facebook's Caty Caldwell And Jessica Odeyemi

"This is the first of a series of technically two hundred talks or roundtable conversations. Where it's not just a one on one. But one onto plus. And i am very excited about this one because we have miss jessica odor yemi once again from ibm technical product manager. And we've got Ms katy call technical program manager at facebook. Such a pleasure to have you both here to night so i just wanna start with one question for each of you in. Why don't we start with katie. Katie what's your first memory of being excited about tech my first memory of being excited about tack. It has to be. I think in my freshman year computer science course. It's like an introduction a computer science. I just remember. I had started at princeton as a chemical engineer and i was just like i was in my first chemistry class. I was like this is like watching paint dry like this is not like the chemistry. I know from high school and i was just really excited about this idea. Setting chemical engineering. But when i took my first computer science course everyone had worn me before the course that was going to be so challenging difficult and i just remember just like enjoying every assignment and every assignment just felt like it felt like a puzzle. Felt fun and i. I felt like i was spinning. Just an inordinate amount of time. Just focus on by computer science work over my chemistry homework and i hadn't even got into sort of like the chemical engineering courses yet and i was like this'll make sense. Why by studying. Something that i am like. Great like begrudgingly. Getting through versus has studying something that i love so i just remember just being super excited about the next assignment and computer science like always wanted the next one wanted to do like the extra credit. I love that and jess unless you that same question. Yeah so let's see. I got into the tech industry per se a little bit later in life. But i remember the first time i was excited about anything. Simulated was an elementary school. When i found out I don't know if you've ever heard of them ike rube goldberg projects Like i don't know if you've ever seen a movie pee wee's big adventure. But at the very beginning he has all these contractions that connect to each other to do different things. But i kind of find out found out an elementary school. There was. We were introduced to the the concept of a rube goldberg project. In thought it was so cool. So i did something similar for science fair project and i thought it was the coolest thing ever As far as you know the tech industry goes. I think that happened much later in life for me. So that probably didn't happen for me until i was working and i think we've chatted about this a little bit before but i was working in the oil industry and it just occurred to me that i was out on the rate drilling wells and that was great but there was this whole other world behind what we were doing. You know software insistence. That was kinda powering. Everything that we were doing out in the field. So i think that's when i first got into Tech per se jessica. I did the rube. Goldberg is file. When i was younger. i've loved it. I went to the. I went to the national competitions. Like and since. I'm so close to purdue growing up so i would go to indiana. Just go see what the students The cooking up so had logged. Rube goldberg did that. When i was like what is the most extravagant way to crack in a like the prices so so member game mouse trap. I love that like that.

"product manager" Discussed on Product Manager Hub (PM Hub)

"Five years ahead so we can't just manage our product managers on the top line revenue because that's out of mostly out of our control but there's a lot of better subtle symptoms or or signals that as product leaders. We want to recognize. We wanna reward. We wanna push our folks ahead. You know maybe they graduate and they don't work for me anymore but they get to do something even better and and that makes me feel great. It's like being a parent you know. I want my kid to play the violin carnegie hall it means i drive my kid to a lot of music lessons and i stand in the back of the hall and i applaud but nobody cares that i'm there they care about who's onstage. Now i love that. Now how do you go about building. That cross functional trust and psychological safety if you No magic here We try not to lie to people we try not to throw them under the bus. Or tram or whatever. Your transport is I think it's our obligation to deal as straightforward as we can with everybody. I think it's important Every day every hour somebody comes to every product manager with a really really good idea. I'm sure it's happened to you right now. Most ideas are not actually very good ideas. But it's important that we separate the person from the idea instead of you know chewing them out and telling them they're stupid right. We wanna thank them for the effort they put in to come to us and bring us this and then of course tell them. We're going to put that idea in the backlog where it belongs in position. Nine hundred fifty and it's never gonna see the light of day but I never wanna be talking anybody down. I never wanna be accusing anybody of things unless it's really true We wanna lean across the island help where we can and i think we as product managers. Because we're very cross functional. We have the opportunity to explain to lots of other departments why departments. They're not happy with actually doing okay. i've never met a sales team. That done engineering was working. Hard enough. right and sales always thinks that the engineers are sitting around eating bon-bons right playing video games right. It's never the case. Just as i know that the engineering team thinks often pretty badly of sales right that engineers think that sales means carrying priceless into a meeting turning it around having the customer sign it and fill out a purchase order right sales as a lot harder than that so part of our job i think building bridges is to build understanding to build appreciation across the other functions because when the companies will we succeed and we'll have companies not doing well. We fail no matter what right so so again. There's this generosity of spirit. There's this understanding of cross functional behavior. You know why do marketing people worked at behave that way. Well it's because they're marketing people and that's how we pay select them so you know. A lot of this is re explaining endlessly. Why the product matters re explaining endlessly. Why customers want it and how it's going to help them and then making sure we as a company love our customers care..

"System or road mapping tool. I'm happy with which everyone they like. And everybody's going to get on board. It does make it much easier if everybody on. The team is doing similar work with similar tools. So we're going to confuse the sales and marketing folks if every product has it's own format and structure for what's happening next or they have to look in six places so i think there's there's a lot of value in common tools in alignment but i would really back off and say if the folks on my team have strong preferences will go with that for starter he app. You've said just leaving open dialogue between them and then they figured out right so right and then at the foreign. We know that the engineering team won't use anything that we picked from the product management side. So if we don't have an output to jira or whatever their ticketing system is they're going to ignore everything we want so there's a minimum technical requirements here but I for instance don't expect my product manages to use jira as a product to because it would be terrible so you know what are we gonna do to capture good customer input to wait different parts of the model and then we're going to just transform it somehow later that's fair. That was talking about the next challenge. Rich on around garrone cross functional collaboration. Yeah this is again. I think this is leader. Level material now every product manager does this but Maybe not everybody on my team spends a lot of time on it We know that if marketing isn't paying attention to what we're building and shipping and releasing the nobody's gonna find out about it and if sales doesn't have the right incentives to sell it. Nobody's gonna take it. And if support isn't excited and trained and has good faq's and escalation paths than our customers are going to suffer so You know lots of things. We have to do here to build cross functional collaboration things on my list. One is I think is a product leader. Probably need to visit every one of the staff meetings of my peers. Let's say once a month or twice a quarter you know refresh him on the roadmap asked for input. Show them that we care. I think You know everybody on. My product team needs to remind their cross functional equivalence..

"So i i'm looking for if i can folks who've been around the block who've been product managers and for whatever reason want to do it again because i think a lot of smart folks do product mentioned while may they quickly figure out. It's not their favorite thing. But you've been done before brought a bunch of versions or releases out on some products that matter so i'm going to go there. I and i generally try to separate to be folks and be dec- folks because i think b. the b. worlds very different from the mass market consumer. So if i read to be a be a company as it usually am. I'm looking for somebody with a few years of experience as a product manager on a b. two b. product If i've got enough of those on my team. I might bring some young. Bushy tailed excited New product managers. In because i'll be able to pair them up and maybe have some mentoring relationships there and i might put a subject expert on the team. But i'm going to be watching them pretty carefully. Because i think there's a whole series of mistakes that subject experts make in their first product management job. And i'd rather have the make it in somebody else's shop on somebody else's product so you know again a balance if it's a brand new space maybe there's nobody with experience but i would say if you've worked on. Erp systems than you can certainly understand network security. You can understand ai and machine language. You can understand You know big data flows and data lakes. etl's whatever. I don't think i need to get someone who's been on the very same product or very same market but give me some adjacent seas. Yeah no that's fair. Now on this topic i've noticed. Quite a number of product leaders making hiring calls purely on direct similar past experience solely. So i'm i'm curious to know what are your thoughts and this wouldn't having someone with fresh eyes and and a private initiative likely bring more innovation out of whack stinking to it. I think there's a mix here so. I believe for instance. I do a lot of work last couple three years around machine learning and ai and natural language processing. That's pretty hard stuff. So if you bring some ai machine learning experience. I think you're up the curve on the other hand if you've only done. Ai for the last twenty five years. You're probably blinded to a lot of things that are happening out there. So i i'd both look for individuals that have a mix of experience but it also look across the team. So i if i've parachuted into a company where all four of the product managers are deep technical experts for a long time in their market. That probably wants some folks with some fresh thinking right. Because i think we bring lessons from other markets we bring lessons from other products and situations if you've had to end life a bunch of products and you know it's hard and ugly. That's almost the same anywhere you go. So if we pick somebody who's done a bunch of good product e work elsewhere. I think their own experiences going.

"Either discovery and so no matter what happens somebody comes to you and says one of those. You know whatever it is they say. Does it go into problem. Discovery solution design or customer delivery. And if it's the first one if it's problem discovery than yes it's product management in. You should do it. If it's one of the other categories it's not product management. And you can choose to do it but not you should not be doing it. Frequently the of love to if you could share a couple of past experiences where you kind of use this tool. Allegis shared with us and to help them. Consult get some clarity on the role of a product manager. You know i'm still stuck on the The last thing you said One of my recent customers made the point on roles of product management. He said you know when he came there. Their definition of product manager was Waiter in a restaurant that buyers and their sales representatives come into the restaurant and they place their order and the product manager the waiter takes the order back to the kitchen where development is and says. Please assemble for me. This thing and i said well you know that that metaphor bothers me on on so many levels but You know if. I'm running an italian restaurant and somebody comes in and orders a hamburger. It's like well we don't make that here. We're an italian restaurant. We make italian food and they're like we all kind of in the mood for some chicken fingers. It's like well. There's there's a mcdonald's down the street go go there But it's more like you want the product manager to at least be a fitness coach. So that you know when somebody comes into your restaurant and says i want spaghetti but instead of marinara. I want you to put motor oil on it with windshield wipers on top. And and you're like. Well i i know that you know the customer's always right but you're wrong. You do not want this. It is not good for you. You will not enjoy even though the customer is asking for it as the product manager. I have.

"Let speaking of them. Zoom a couple of months into the twenty twenty school year where everybody was using zoom. They partnered with a company called de ten to build a zoom tablet. Call detained me. I think it is but it's a it's only presume. It's not a general purpose tablet. it's zoom tablet and has all it does and it's got a good webcam and it's got good speakers and it's got a good microphone and all of those things that are not true for any of the year that's in the school system right there you the ten year old computers. That are terrible right. So i i'll be interested to see if that that tablet does well for them. A dedicated resumed tablet would be appropriate for many applications. I think most most of my nerd friends say everything. I need on my existing tablet but then i spent a thousand dollars on my tablet. Not three hundred dollars. Which is what the teachers have. So three roles product growth. How do we sell more of what we've already built the planning role product owner role of identifying friction that prevents our customers from achieving satisfaction and then the strategy role of what new product should. We be building for the future. What new markets or new What new markets for our products or what or what new products for our markets. And i love how you broke it down and gave example for us and how you know the main role off the product manager is discovery part of like. You know what needs to come next. And how are we going to like. You mentioned build a new product. That technology is enabling us. So there's a new market for it or customers like you know is is from the customers that kind of needs come from rights. I love how you broke each down kind of elaborate on those and actually one can argue once you build a right product as a product manager. It's gonna make the product growth their jobs much easier because the product is so good that you know it's not that hard to market in a sell it right well. That's true although it's almost at odds. I mean it's like two trends. We having in the industry right now. That are at odds. One is product led growth. Which says you know. Build a great product. The product sells itself. You build Capabilities in there that make it easy to share with.

"I mean yeah i. I'm actually i'm i'm cheating. I'm trying to remember a particular slide described it. A product managed product management is is systematically turning good ideas into successful products and the key word. I'm looking for in that is Well successful a good word but systematic and this gets me to a a real difference of people. There are some people who do whatever it takes to get something to happen. you know. they're expediter. They're like just get it done and product. Managers aren't like that product managers are. Let's get it done right so we don't have to do it over again. And sales people and services people and support people tend to be very much the expediter. It's like i've got somebody on the phone. I have to deal with the issue. I want to get him off the phone. I want to resolve. I want you know. I want this taking care of. I don't care about being the documentation. Or i don't care about being systematic about it. I just need to deal with this fire. And maybe that's even the best metaphor. There are many people in our companies who are firefighters. Product manager should not be firefighters. They should be fire preventers. And it's an and i think it's an entirely different mindset but at the end of the day in answer to your earlier question It's about systematically turning good ideas into successful product a hobby elaborate on that and kind of like made this make the distinction from their spell. Now you know what if you were to kind of like talk about the main productivity and elaborate on each one of those be great. Okay cool well let me work backwards. So so we so we've got a product in the market and we'll let me do it another way. Three things keep executives up at night particularly in startups but even in more sandwich companies. How do we sell more of what we've built our we. Can we build what we've planned and are we planning the.

"Yeah, no, that's that's amazing. Thanks for sharing that great example of really elaborated your point on it. Now. I wanted to ask you to kind of questions that because focusing then like suctions for for our folks out there. Let's say common situations. I guess the first one was about, you know, how to interface with a large that's a hundred plus sales and success organization. Yeah, so that kind of just built back into the the experience. We just talked about so, you know successful be to be a company's you are dealing with a large sales organization at page of Duty when I was there we had you know, an excessive 200 reps. Um, and it's so easy to just be drowned by all the different tasks and these are you know, your colleagues that are just doing their jobs are trying to hit their quota and you know, get get get get their compensation and so on so you really do have to put structures in mechanisms in place so that you're not Drowned out by all these assets and so there's a couple of actionable things that that I would want to pass on to to the community right first. Make it make a proactive and and make it predictable. So what I would what I've always encourages have some sort of monthly demo or enablement session where you're going out to the sales to your sales colleagues and saying hey, this is what's new. This is what's this is what's coming you're not waiting for them to to bombard you with all these statistic asks, you're you're going out and saying this is what we're we're actually up to you can even do a look ahead. You know, this is what's coming next next quarter and so on and what that does is if you think it it gives them a constant stream of information that they can take back to their customers or their prospects and say hey, this is what's new. This is what's exciting about about the product but it also kind of odd, you know in an inverse sense tells them what you're not going to do because hey, this is what we're working on..

So the right path forward really on a process side effects, you know to kind of give that a little bit of room to get that little bit of flexibility, you know, the right path forward here can rarely be completely planned at the outset as you know, complex changed almost dead. Always encounters unknown unknowns that require adaptation on the Fly and organizations have to move away from these fully baked change plans and instead adopt kind of a sense and adapt to approach that I'm a bit of that room and that really means getting comfortable to kind of experimentation iteration and most importantly failure which is really the lifeblood of learning right, you know, if it kind of analogize us again back to some things just got in product manager to kind of bring this back a little bit, you know, we got this like build measure learn framework or learn build measure depending on people want to view that diagram in product.

I remember I had a guest not too long ago and then we talked about okay ours and he's okay our trainer and he meant I mentioned you know, what's the least understood about you do and they said well just think they can just okay put a frame call it okay on and they can just do it. Yeah, totally. I love I love full leaves episode. Actually. It was a great episode on this one. Yeah, for sure now, Scott. I'm curious to know how do you define change management? Actually, why is it important? So I like to Define change management as being I guess a systematic approach that includes dealing with both the transition or transformation of organizational goals core values processes or Technologies and like the focus of my work is on the organizational side the processes and the technology generally are pretty well kind of known a lot of cases and you just really important because change is a constant and really frankly inevitable today. Like we all work in you know, highly changing environments like, you know, the world is not going any slower. It seems to be if anything speeding up and changes critical to businesses growing and evolving and we need to be able to work through change successfully are really actually organizationally we risk dying as organizations or his team's and and not be successful and what we set out to do and where we need to go. Yeah, no, that's fair enough. Totally. Now how does I'm curious? How does change management relate to product field and like, you know to begin with let's do that as a bit of a loaded question cuz I think change your plan is to so many roles. It's not just change management. But like each and every day, we as product managers deal with change. We have to manage change to our road maps have to manage how you know change how we're working with changed the projects that were executing on or or building or developing and we need to make changes to our things like are strategies and plans as we recently saw with with covet. The O'Neills Dave is a you know, a break does the all the responsibility podcast that's out there and and certainly as a writer on the topic or product manager likes to say that you know, we have all the responsibility. None of the 30,000 to navigate change to as PMS is really important as a scale, you know, just I guess give an example of this like where this kind of shows up as you've got an organization say working a certain way today. And maybe a team decides they want to go do something like go a jovial and and suddenly there's a whole lot of people impacted by that change, you know, somebody's responsible for product is people in other departments Engineers. TJ, people everyone's kind of you know, suddenly starts struggling with all the communication around this before, you know, that's kind of a bunch of misunderstandings. There's a bit of resistance and teams before you know it like some of the themes are feeling like there's I mean, you know kind of knee deep in quicksand and all these people are struggling to kind of get aligned.

"I've always been flipping back and forth between the tech and business world. And so if you think about product it's an amazing cross-section of the two great great blend of the two disciplines so long in my career. I started by studying Computer Engineering knew I didn't want to be a developer. So I landed in strategy. But while I was at beIN in strategy I missed the tech world. So I took the transfer to change the Bay Area in order to get some strategy work in a technology business or multiple businesses. So then when I moved back to Toronto, I went back to bail to try and leverage a strategy game into an operating role at a company that is in a more technical discipline. So there was kind of always this Evan flow between do I want to be in technology in like a operational role or a Strategic role and and then I think after I'd been through that the skills that I learned from the Consulting side of my career actually more transferable than you might think. So but some of the things you need as a product manager are strong relationship building the ability to deconstruct and build up the hypotheses that come to kind of conclusions with them politically and data-driven solutions estimate value and prioritize things and then of course, you have to kind of have a little bit of vision in both worlds in order to be successful in the careers and that's basically I took the plunge when my friend offered me the job and never looked back that said, you know, the world has evolved a lot since 2009 and my understanding is evolved a lot of the role of p.m. So thinking about it, you know, some of the things I have learned along the ways my first fact was about thirty five pages long before I went to that as opposed than a joke kind of flow. I've never run or heard of a b testing or even user experience really or web analytics package broke down at one point and we had no web data for three months. So we would make decisions in the blind which is very hard in a consumer business. And so obviously my my view on what product management means is changed a lot in the last twelve or thirteen years, but especially Journey you've been all over the place from you know, software engineering to Consulting and then finding your way to product which which actually pretty much explains it in all the touching different areas, you know technical business strategy and then you come come in the middle and then you do kind of like double into all of them, right? So that's that's very cool. Now you're at home product at rate Hub. I'm curious to know if you could share a bit more about your role there and then how you went about building the product practice their? Yeah. Sure.

But before we dive in I'd love to you know, we all have different Journeys in the product. I'm curious to know how how was your journey product? Yeah, sure. So I kind of stumbled into the whole product world. I spent a long time working in corporate strategy and and kind of got tired of just telling companies how to age or defining ideas for companies to make more money and and figure things out actually want to make should happen. And so I decided to start taking a look around when I was looking about 2009 and I was in Toronto and product management was kind of not as well known here as as it was in in the Bay Area or lots of places in the US wage. Um, so I hadn't really heard of it in its current Incarnation. I had heard the term product manager when I worked at Bell, but really those roles were more like product marketing as opposed to project management as I know it today and so I started looking and and heard this sermon one of my mentors from Bane and Bell connected me to Former Consulting birth. His who took who was setting up a product function at a Wanda. So I chose to explore it and luckily and actually took a chance on a guy with no experience. And basically I fell in love kind of immediately. If I go back a step further throughout my life..

"Really that's developing understanding You go hunting for new data in inside to collect this detective. You trying to get into data cotton, slice it. You're always trying to figure out what what, what are the trends or the hidden nuggets that might be in your data. You you are also very much valuing, and in fact, you need to participate in doing user custody interviews and you don't just focus on your own solutions, but you're trying to get to know the customer you're trying to observe their problems you bring back qualitative as well as quantitative. Context into into a into your team and that's the analyst wind set. The challenge mindset allows you to identify mitigate rates so far from just simply being critical it actually really helps you surface assumptions that you've been making that might undermine your success It also allows you to do this saddle psychology change like when you restate your ideas in terms of a hypothesis that allows you to focus on the problem and what might validate or invalidate it and not your personal feelings postal attachment to the idea and see this allows you to kind of with more interactively say no to things look for disconcerting. Validation evidence. And you can just sort of embrace as dissenting voices so far from trying to avoid unhappy customers or or not told to the near that engineer that always pushes back in asks why you working on something you embrace that because you really really want to. Understand kind of what might be. More, what might not be going so well for your product. And then finally often overlooked the the evangelists mindset really allows you to build momentum. It allows you to kind of focus your team it motivator team builds support for with your team in your stakeholders particular. It requires a lot of community over communication education on the outcomes. You're really bringing to working infectious optimism enthusiasm while still being realistic and importantly the lousy. It's an important step a mindset where you kind of lose ownership. And you allow the team to own the problem and solve it, and that's an that's a hard thing for many for many progresses. So that's basically what the full mindsets I I'm pressed to argue that a product manager does not need at least. Some of each of those to bring those to at least some of the time..

"Yourself on thankful for your. Now, let's get back to the show. I love that. Now, if you really were to drive the film natter Kinda give us an example from your own. Past experience. What would that be? Yeah I'm Trying to think of a good example because. I've I've only gotten that I've only become what I think is a good product manager park measure for now ten years. It probably took me like five or six years to really think that I am a good product manager. The one example I can probably think of is at my last company, we built a product called sleep. And so we were you know a little bit of context and I won't go into too much detail because it's not as sexy as necessarily facebook But we built this product called fleet mode, which was a word in the trucking space and logistics base, and we were dealing with owner operators and When we were trying to think of the problem was like, how can we expand our market share? How can we go after a different market? Well, you know. Owner operators are individual truck drivers but in what the next step is, obviously when you have a group of of truck drivers at work together for a particular company and when we set out to talk to fleets effectively and when we when we talk to fleets trying to understand their problems while they had a lot of problems, they had problems from say. not only trying to. So our previous product again, a little more context we were a load or freight matching platform, which meant that we can match a driver and the shipper together like based on their location, their truck rates and based on the shippers location. Obviously in also what they wanted to pay, we would basically match them almost like a dating site for truck drivers in a way. Romance Part But anyways when we talked to fleets, I mean, there problems were were really long. It started from because obviously when you have more drivers, one of the things that you need to do is also scheduling is a big problem and you know so they have things like you know. So scheduling it is signing to the right driver knowing where the driver is there's even like multi booking in. So when we when we really went through this particular problem of what we wanted to solve for fleets, we we dove until like what is the core problem and so we work with our target audience, which was really a forget the term now, but it's effectively like. The at any fleet, there's always a coordinator if you will. This is a coordinator who is somebody who works at the at the at the trucking company and they're on the phone all day trying to find loads for the.

"Into text and that's the way they knew the world there were like we're happy with that. So don't go for email, but I think might end the the guys have blackberry intercept email was such a strong would be such a strong driver. So I think they deserve a lot of attic because they went against the mobile carriers. desire to stick with what the new best and they said no, we can do email and we will sheep email devices to our clients and that's what they ended up doing in. That was the success day they had for ten years. Very cool yeah. No. On top of all of this, what would you say was the role of customer obsession in knowing building products that use like the BPM one. So. In this case blackberry, they were pretty much focused on is operatives in in people that were predicted to their emails, and they needed to have constant updates in. In in many ways that the customer themselves they were has obsessed would blackberries has you could imagine they woods in other stories of people sleeping with with blackberries under the bills just to make sure that they were not losing. You know the latest and so on. So. I really think that in the beginning, they were pretty obsessed with crafting. at the best product that could not one hundred percent shortly were customer obsessed. It's just one of those cases where. It happens to have real really perfect product market fits. And then you have it. But not because you have this, you know burning desire or a super obsessed with your clients isn't they? That's actually one of the reasons ended up losing market shares because. Those guys they understood Oh. This is great is exactly what we need to have e mail. On our pockets all the time. and and for some reason that customer obsession was was lost along. The way is lots reasons that happened in you have to keep in mind that it's really hard if you are a product manager. To please everyone. So that's Rule number one of product management right is you cannot please everyone. So you have to be very careful how to please. And who want to please and how many people that market represents.

"With more right I. was looking for a credible product managers who have had teams themselves who have.

But at the same time, we're not going to be like passing every person that will be okay being say, well, this person is great but they're still missing this. So I'm going to reject them give them all this advice and say, Hey, you can apply back in six months or even apply back in the year three months any art what they lacked. So the on the screen team, I was looking for people who are some sounds like But, people who are judgmental. But also people who are empathize watch great mentors, groomers, talent and identifiers talent, and then they got that is to say, okay, this person can be great right or did this precursor could mean need this kind of job And of we've got a very rigorous screening framework with retinal with the content being updated involved. But at the same time, we also trust our screeners to look for great personalities. Great passionate. People. In filter out people who are going to be a clashes with that right I mean there are some talented people out there. Some of them don't have the greatest attitudes on are are are fairly arrogant. It's fourth. So those may not be the greatest nashes for our clients because we want on hindsight experience as well. Right. So we're not only testing you you being a great product manager, but also you'd be a great freelance talent. So so so that's really what the screening team has to do, and that's what I moved for hiring. Now for matching it's more client facing and is much more out out. So say you know focus on be covering opportunities. So again, I know they're probably more senior than your average product manager at the same time they're really good at figuring out what people are saying.
