About the Talk:
Product Ops 101 – What, Why, When, How
Product Ops is an emerging function across the tech industry. It has become increasingly popular in the last 3-5 years with more companies hiring for product ops roles as well as the emergence of resources and events dedicated to it. But, there is still much to be learned in this space!
Given that key “customers” for Product Ops are the people who build and ship products in a company i.e. product managers, product designers, and engineers – this talk should resonate even if you are not working in a product ops role!
In this talk, Gerisha will draw on her personal experience of working as a Product Ops leader as well as the numerous insights from her podcast guests (Stripe, Shopify, Twilio etc) in order to unpack:
She will run through practical examples and case studies which highlight some common problems in how we “do” product at scale (as well as how to tackle them from a Product Ops point of view).
