Companies are beginning to realise the benefits of diverse teams. However, have product managers caught on to the same trick when connecting with users?
In this weeks’ Sunday Rewind, we go all the way back to #mtpengage Hamburg 2018, where product director at Xing, Mirja Bester, shared how she thinks that by making diversity a key objective, product teams can increase their business value.
Product managers have the responsibility to include as many customers as possible. If done right, this leads to more revenue.
For a product person then, there are good reasons to keep diversity in mind. But how do we do so? Mirja walked the audience through her personal suggestions:

- Initially dive deep
- Leave your home turf
- Go incognito for a bit
- Quantify early
