How to Utilize Product Market Fit by Google Product Manager
November 28, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Building the right product at the right time for the right customer…that’s the mecca, and it’s hard for companies big and small, established and new! While you might have heard about PMF, product market fit, and MVP, minimum viable product,, do those buzzwords mean anything to you right now? Do you think they mean the same thing to you as they do to your boss, your colleagues or potential employers? In Jocelyn’s experience, even folks in Fortune 500 companies don’t quite agree on these definitions, but they learn over time what works and doesn’t.
-Understanding the process of experimentation needed to get to product market fit
-Best practices on how to measure product market fit and which pitfalls to avoid
-How to effectively talk to customers in a way that gets them to tell you what you need to hear
-How to hear what customers mean beyond just their words, hint: sometimes, customers lie,
