Over the last three years a wide array of industry professionals including academics, analysts, associations, authors, bloggers, consultants, practitioners, and industry thought leaders joined forces with thought leading members from adjoining professions to develop the ProdBOK Guide. The intent of this industry-wide collaboration was to lay a cornerstone to help standardize the practice of product management and advance the profession. Approximately 60 contributors helped to collaboratively develop the ProdBOK Guide. Join us to learn more about the effort and learn how you can help us to transform the profession.

Join Cindy F. Solomon and Therese Padilla, AIPMM President, as they discuss the origins of this effort and the significant role that industry professionals played in the development of the ProdBOK Guide.
