VMs are from Venus and PMs are from Mars – building a team with different viewpoints

26 January 2022, 16:00-17:00 CET
Speakers: Giada Gerotto, Nertila Konda & Indre Leleviciene

PMs can be very dependent upon the work of the VM but their priorities aren’t always aligned. In this discussion, you’ll hear on VM and two PMs (yes, it’s unfair but this is what it looks like in the office) talk about their respective goals within their roles and the frustrations and challenges that arise when the PMs don’t have the resources they need. And that is when the discussion begins! Everyone will be invited to take part in the discussions – share your stories, your failures, and how the situation might be improved.
