Roundtable discussion: Stakeholder vs. User Driven Product Features
The motivation for every good PM is to build products that customers love, ideally based on data. But what happens when you are put into a situation where a stakeholder is in opposition to users? Is there a simple solution to this? How do you evaluate if the decisions were right or wrong?
How do roundtable discussions work?
- Every roundtable discussion includes 5 active participants and a moderator to run the discussion.
- Each participant will prepare a question about the chosen topic to discuss. Please come prepared with a question and be prepared to discuss the questions other participants ask.
- The roundtable discussion lasts a total of 40 minutes, including:
o 5 MINUTES: A quick introduction from each participant about who you are and what you do.
o 35 MINUTES: Interactive discussions about each question (7 minutes per question).
- Other conference attendees are welcome to quietly watch the roundtable discussion. There will always be about 15 chairs set up for an audience. We’ll also be live streaming the discussion for attendees who can’t attend in person
Don't worry if you run out of time! Feel free to continue talking with other participants after the official roundtable discussion ends.
