Requested Session Topics

In the last couple of months, we’ve received a number of suggestions from ProductCampers like you about suggested topics for sessions.  These are session ideas that the submitter did not plan to offer, but which they would like to attend.

As you consider what topic you might want to offer, feel free to see if any of these tickle your fancy…You could use them as-is, or use them as a starting point!  Included here is a potential category to help show the topic’s relevance to product management:

  • Career: How to break into Product Management – Advice for new grads & for other wanting to change careers.
  • Agile: How a tech team using Kanban can work best with a product management team who has customers steeped in a more traditional PMI/PMBOK style project management realm.
  • Pricing: I would love to hear about how folks gather competitive information on pricing and generally what kind of models people use to generate their pricing.
  • User Experience: Trends in User Experience – How to keep the usability of your sites current
