In this keynote from #mtpcon San Francisco, Fareed Mosavat, Director of Product, Lifecycle, at Slack, shares his early career lessons on creativity from Pixar. He says being a great product leader is about being a director instead of a manager.
Products have become much more complex over the last 20 years and an increasingly competitive and crowded marketplace has led to the creation of new roles, different teams, design sprints and methodologies. Now, it’s not enough just to solve problems for today’s customers, products must also be delivered beautifully and intelligently. As Fareed says: “It’s incredible we are able to build anything at all.”
We’re in a Revolutionary Shift
