WORKSHOP: The Product Managers Toolkit

Merissa Silk

Chief Product & Tech Officer @ Fundingport

3 November

Processes

Digital

Why you need to attend this workshop

Too many product teams still approach new product or feature development by jumping straight into solutions, which comes with risks. The product vision workshop enables teams to apply a product mindset and begin ideation by looking at the problem space and users’ needs. This approach will ensure that your product brings value to your users and to your business.

The product vision workshop and accompanying canvas is like a Swiss Army Knife for product teams. Use this workshop to break down new features, crystallize new product ideas, set a quarterly vision for an existing product, or conduct a 3-year envisioning exercise.

By taking a user-centric approach and building on ideas from one column to the next, at the end of the workshop you're sure to have a solid product vision and full-team alignment. The product vision workshop is a ‘must have' for any PM’s toolkit.

During this interactive session, attendees will work together in small groups to try out the product vision workshop first-hand and leave with the confidence to facilitate with their teams.

Session Key takeaways:

1. The product canvas is a flexible tool for applying a user-centric methodology to developing your product vision and strategy.

2. By adjusting the time frame and product scope considered during your brainstorm, this workshop can be useful for product teams and product companies alike.

3. The vision workshop can be combined with empathy mapping, ‘how might we’ brainstorms, crazy 8s, Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle, and guerilla research to create the perfect kickoff week with your team.

This session is for you if… You’re interested in putting the user at the center of your product development and go-to-market strategies. All product- and product-adjacent roles can benefit from this workshop — product managers, product designers, customer success managers, sales, marketing, business development, and more!

WORKSHOP: Responsible AI - From Theory to Practice

Leigh Felton

Director, Responsible AI @ Microsoft

3 November

Digital

Processes

Why you need to attend this session

The future of artificial intelligence and advanced tech systems (such as machine learning) Black and brown people, women, disabled populations, individuals living with mental health conditions and other marginalized communities is significant and can be both beneficial and harmful depending on the people designing, developing and delivering such solutions.

Taking a human-centered approach to socio-technical challenges means that instead of talking about technology first, we talk about humans first and then the relationships between humans and technology. Responsible AI pushes beyond compliance and tech policy, and introduces real lived experiences, examples and our own biases into the technology that we have grown to trust and rely on.

Session Key takeaways:

  • What is responsible AI and why you should care, and how it can and will impact your life and those around you.
  • What we can all do to contribute to closing the technology equity gap for marginalized communities.
  • Responsible AI leads to true innovation, which leads to true opportunity and organizational impact.

Who is this session perfect for?

Anyone interested in getting involved, understanding the opportunities and gaps of AI, and believe that technology should be a benefit to society and will help play a role in shaping that as our future truth.

How To Scale bias-free AI

Sheetal

4 November

Processes

Why you need to attend this session
As more enterprises embark on AI-led transformation journeys, a business must recognize sources of unconscious bias that inadvertently creep into the AI algorithms. These if not addressed right from the beginning would hamper the growth and have grave downstream implications for the brand value.

As machine learning, natural language processing, and language generation technologies like Watson debater, GPT-3 go mainstream, the need for defining an organizational framework to detect and delete bias will become of strategic relevance.

The goal of the session is to educate the audience about the definition of bias, sources of bias creep, evidence of algorithms gone wrong, and share practical advice for individuals on how they can contribute to protecting the organization.

The demo will be evidence of how AI algorithms trained with "bad" data and unconscious bias can lead to results that do not reflect human values of equality & diversity.

Session Key takeaways:

- Discover some of the most recent technological advances to eliminate bias.
- Explore some of the business implications of lack of customer trust
- Discover examples of (un)ethical AI invasions

Who is this session perfect for?
Practitioners and leaders from AI, cloud and advanced data across multiple sectors

As more enterprises embark on AI-led transformation journeys, a business must recognize sources of unconscious bias that inadvertently creep into the AI algorithms. These if not addressed right from the beginning would hamper the growth and have grave downstream implications for the brand value.

As machine learning, natural language processing, and language generation technologies like Watson debater, GPT-3 go mainstream, the need for defining an organizational framework to detect and delete bias will become of strategic relevance.

The goal of the session is to educate the audience about the definition of bias, sources of bias creep, evidence of algorithms gone wrong, and share practical advice for individuals on how they can contribute to protecting the organization.

The demo will be evidence of how AI algorithms trained with "bad" data and unconscious bias can lead to results that do not reflect human values of equality & diversity.

Session Key takeaways:

- Discover some of the most recent technological advances to eliminate bias.
- Explore some of the business implications of lack of customer trust
- Discover examples of (un)ethical AI invasions

Who is this session perfect for?

How To Lead High Performing Teams In A Distributed World

Liz Burrow

Workplace Strategy & Design Consultant @ Ex WeWork

4 November

"

How to stop managing and start mentoring as a way to build trust, autonomy and innovation within your team.

During the pandemic, some teams thrived and some teams dived. Many leaders complained that the workplace was the missing ingredient in their team's success. But leading teams is not a place, it's a practice. In this session we’ll learn from Liz Burow, a practitioner and professor of design thinking about her experience teaching and leading teams remotely during the pandemic and the platform of tools, tips and tactics we can borrow from the remote learning world and bring into our hybrid working world.

Key takeaways:

  • From team to community: pick up new tools to build trust, reciprocity and sense of belonging within a team that are the backbone to awesome teams and awesome work.
  • Target feedback for fast action: Be introduced to the ‘team Net Promoter Score’ and other frameworks to give productive feedback to your peers, employees or leaders that encourage awareness and accountability.
  • Rowing through the sea of ambiguity: Achieve new success through team metrics and mentorship that can move your team from a comfort zone to growth zone.

Why you need to listen to this session.

People leave managers, not companies. A lack of appreciation, lack of career growth, feeling burnt out are some of the main reasons people leave their jobs. Thinking of your team as a community of learners rather than employees can help shift the mindset from performance towards passion, enabling better work, clearer goals and happier people. Who is this session perfect for This session is for you if you want to build stronger, self-loving and self motivated teams using low-tech, high impact (and fun) tools that leverage design thinking frameworks and virtual collaboration platforms into your daily practice.

Keynote: Why You Need To Get Out Of Your Own Way

Shobhana Ahluwalia

CIO @ Peloton

4 November

Skills

Keynote

Why you need to attend this session?

Women tend to self-select out of activities either based on their own preconceived notions of what it takes to succeed, misplaced community advice or not using their voice to advocate for themselves.

Shobz Ahluwalia, CIO of Peloton, will discuss how you can sometimes be your own worst enemy. She’ll discuss her own career path, how she had to fight against a culture that wanted to protect her and not support her, and how she got out of her own way to thrive in the technology industry.

Session Key takeaways:

  • Don’t spend your time trying to get noticed - raise your hand and ask for what you need.
  • Know the difference between support and protection - and always opt for support. Success isn’t linear - you need to have the long term vision of what you want and not just about the next promotion.
  • Success isn’t a ladder, it’s a lattice.

Who is this session perfect for?

You find yourself at a crossroads in your career, you’re not sure what your next step is, and you’re hearing conflicting advice from your network.

Why you need to attend this session

Diversity is now a business imperative.  And this is for good reason—the benefits of diversity and inclusion (D&I) extend far beyond improving public perception and avoiding workplace discrimination risks, as studies show that companies that have more diverse management teams are more innovative and have 19% higher revenue as a result.


Although many organisations are embracing the D&I agenda, most have a lot of work to do when it comes to collecting and analysing the data needed to make meaningful changes.

With data and analytics, D&I leaders are in a better position to create working environments where employees can reach their full potential and feel valued.

In this session, you will receive tips on how to collect the right data on diversity and best practices for effectively incorporating data-driven decision-making into your organisations diversity agenda

Key Takeaways: 

  • How to overcome the challenges of collecting diversity data;
  • Ways to use that data to understand focus areas, determine action plans and assess impact;
  • Methods for combining diversity data with real stories from employees and perspectives from network groups to ensure a robust understanding of experiences across diverse groups

Who Is This Session Perfect For?

  • Managers, team leaders and supervisors, colleagues with responsibility for others , HR specialists (both recruitment, resourcing and people support)
  • People tasked with D&I analysis or D&I impact Assessment and EDI Champions
  • People who act as mentors to others within the business
  • Leads of colleague Network Groups sharing protected characteristics
