    The Scrappy Product Manager

    Join us for the October meetup, where you'll have a chance to meet other like minds, discuss product management in Nashville, and hear from Erik Carlson, Executive Director of New Ventures for redpepper, who will share perspectives from his 15 years in high tech product management and talk about where the discipline is going.

    Agenda 6:00 - 6:30 > Meet & Greet 6:30 - 7:00 > Introductions 7:00 - 7:45 > Erik Carlson: The Scrappy Product Manager 7:45 - 8:00 > Closing Remarks

    The Scrappy Product Manager On one end of the spectrum, the Fortune 1000 product manager faces the reality of 90% new product failure rates despite the benefit of huge product development budgets. On the other end of the spectrum, the startup product manager faces the reality of time and budget constraints to quickly find product-market fit before the next financing round. Join this session about how the scrappy, gritty, and nimble product manager can thrive in either scenario and adapt for a changing future.

    About the Speaker Erik Carlson, Executive Director of New Ventures for redpepper, will share perspectives from his 15 years in high tech product management and talk about where the discipline is going. Pretty good chance there will be a squiggly line and references to Carl Jung, Ze Frank, Reggie Watts, and a 100’ marshmallow man.
