TPMA Talk with Ravi Mehta: What is Your Current Shape? A PMs Guide to Grow Themselves and Their Team
The best PMs — the peak product managers — don’t just ship features. They do whatever it takes to deliver valuable outcomes for their users, their team, and their company. In order to do this, PMs and their teams must excel at a diverse, mutually reinforcing set of skills. Most PMs, even peak PMs, excel at only a handful of these competencies. The difference between the average PM and the peak PM is an understanding of gaps and the ability to unite a team that fills those gaps. In this session, we're going to discuss how to think about growing your skills and uniting a team that complements each other to form a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
