Global Product Management Talk With Barbara North, Director Of Product At FORA.tv

Barbara North, Director Of Product At FORA.tv, Discusses Soft Touch Product Management For Small Teams Or "Managing through LOLcats"

On small teams, the product manager often functions as product manager, project manager, scrum master, product owner, QA manager, analytics department, and coffee guy. How do you keep all the stakeholders happy? How do you avoid meltdowns and temper tantrums (including your own)? A sense of humor and a good GIF collection can help.

Barbara North, Director of Product at FORA.tv joins host Cindy F. Solomon in the studio for the weekly Global Product Management Talk on Monday, August 26, 2013 at the simultaneous times of 10:00 AM Pacific Time, 11:00 AM MST Denver, 12:00 Noon CST Chicago, and 1:00 PM EST Boston.

Barbara says, "As a product team of one I always love tuning in to Global Product Management Talk as a chance to check in with "my people." I've been a pretty passive voice in the community to date, so I'm looking forward to diving in the deep end!"
