In this #mtpcon Digital 2020 keynote, Gibson Biddle, Former VP Product, Netflix, lays out a methodology to hack your product career through self-positioning, experimentation, data-assessment, and feedback.
Watch the video to see his talk in full. Or read on for an overview of his key points:
- Understand your product and leadership skills
- Form hypotheses and experiment with side projects
- Establish your own board of directors and utilise feedback
Gibson begins by introducing what he describes as the most important product he knows – “that the product is you”, he says. Using a basic positioning model, he shows how we can understand our own value, asking product questions like:
- What is the product?
- What are the benefits?
- What’s your personality?
