“Product, Project and Program Managers in Product Development: Who’s Responsible for What?”
Residence Inn Portland West / Hillsboro

The Oregon chapter of the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA) invites you to its November Learning and Networking Event; “Product, Project and Program Managers in Product Development: Who’s Responsible for What?”

Throughout the development of every product, tough decisions have to be made including funding, features, schedule and resources. Three key roles for this process are the product manager, the project manager and the program manager. Three panelists with experience at IBM, HP, and Tektronix will explain each manager’s perspective on the product development process and explore ways to eliminate potential areas of overlap and friction. A Q&A session will follow allowing the audience to clarify points or share additional thoughts on this important topic.

Attending this event will provide you with a clarification of roles and suggestions for how to work more effectively with each position at every stage of a product development cycle.

PSU Business Accelerator

Product Development and Management Association Learning and Networking Event

Most new products fail even though really smart people work hard to make them successful. Why is that? The journey from a glimmer of a new idea to a commercially winning product is long and arduous, with many steps and decisions along the way. This event will identify the most common causes of new product failure and propose action to avoid those problems in the future. The discussion will range from the fuzzy front end to sales support and from individual to team to market challenges.

Two of the most experienced Product Managers in Portland, with combined new product experience of over 50 years, will illustrate the causes of failure with real-world examples. Audience members will have time to pose questions, offer comments and exchange ideas on this important and challenging topic.

Everyone involved in product planning and product development from either the engineering or marketing side will benefit. The causes that will be explained apply to start-up companies as well as large, established corporations. By attending, you’ll be able to go back to your product development activities and quickly assess if you’re at risk of becoming a victim of one or several of these all too common pitfalls.

This event will be at: Portland State Business Accelerator intersection of SW Corbett Ave. & SW Meade St. Portland, OR 97201

Forge Portland

At this unique meetup, "I want to work for _ _ _ _ _ _", each month we introduce a new company through one of their star employees.

For September its going to be Gokul Surya from Nike!

In his own words, here's how Gokul manages his career:

"Continuously iterate to reach the pinnacle” is what comes to my mind whenever I take time to think about the future. I believe that people, processes and perspectives will help me get to where I want to be. Trusting the people, collaborating on developing the processes, and using different perspectives to solve problems along the path to develop a successful organization.

You definitely don't want to miss this :)
