After a summer hiatus, the Start with the Customer Podcast is back! In this episode I am honored to be joined by Larry McKeogh, product management expert and founder of Rocky Mountain ProductCamp and Scott Sehlhorst, of Tyner Blain consulting.
We started off the call catching up on the lastest news from ProductCamp Utah, followed by a discussion on the different ProductCamp approaches. We spent some time talking about Larry’s presentation from PCamp Utah and the skills necessary for being a successful product manager. From there we continued on the topic of “The Power of the Customer” and where crowdsourcing can play a part in product development. We concluded the call with some parting shots on the latest news from Yahoo and the challenges of managing a turnaround without a clear strategy.
I hope you enjoy the show and would love to hear your feedback!
