Product Management Special Interest Group

Glean leading practices and learnings to enhance product management capabilities, product marketing operations and product marketplace success.

The Product Management Special Interest Group (SIG) is a practice-sharing community for product management professionals and product innovation leaders. It provides a forum to explore best practices for bringing new products to market or developing and enhancing existing products, and is open to all physical goods and services members seeking to improve their current product portfolios.

Spanning several sessions, this SIG will provide a valuable opportunity for participants to:

  • Discuss topics of shared interest related to product management at a deeper level.
  • Compare approaches for addressing shared challenges.
  • Discover new ideas and best practices for product management capabilities, product marketing operations and product marketplace success.

Participation in the Product Management SIG is reserved for professionals from UWEBC member companies with a responsibility in managing key phases of the product life cycle. Roles may vary by meeting topic. If you would like to learn more about the Product Management SIG, please review the SIG’s charter document and/or contact UWEBC Marketing Practice Director Chris Murray at chris.murray@wisc.edu or 608-265-3299.

Details»
Description:

The health and safety of our members is the UWEBC’s top priority. UW–Madison is monitoring the COVID-19 situation in collaboration with local, state and federal agencies. Based on campus' guidance, this meeting will be held via web only to allow our members a convenient and safe way to attend.

In the second installment of this new group, we'll help answer “What should I do with all my product ideas?” Having a consistent, disciplined and efficient approach to managing new ideas is critical to successful product changes or new product launches.

This meeting will consist of thought-leader presentations followed by small group discussions to explore:

  • How to sift through and assess all the insights and ideas you’ve generated in the Discovery Phase
  • How to vet, rank, and allocate resources to further explore certain ideas
  • How to establish decision criteria for which ideas make it to the product/feature development phase of work

Participate in Customizing the Agenda: Help shape our discussion content – and maximize its relevance for you – by suggesting topics of interest when you register.
