Developing Product Expertise With Teresa Torres, Vice President, Products, AfterCollege, Inc

  1. 1. Global Product Management Talk On Product Expertise With Teresa Torres, VP Products, AfterCollege Teresa Torres, Vice President, Products, AfterCollege, Inc. Discusses Developing Product Expertise FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PRLog (Press Release) - Sep. 22, 2013 - ALBANY, Calif. -- Teresa Torres comments, "In talking with founders, investors, product folks, designers, and engineers, here in Silicon Valley, I’m starting to realize that product management is still grossly under-developed. At many startups, the function, if it exists at all, is nothing more than translating feedback into feature lists, prioritizing that list, and calling it a product roadmap." "I've met countless product professionals who are interested in mastering their craft. One of the most common questions I get is, how do we get better at building great products. This is a hard question to answer. What skills should we develop? How much of product success is luck? What does it mean to be a product expert?" We'll explore these questions and many more in this one hour chat. Teresa Torres, Vice President, Products, AfterCollege, Inc. joins host Cindy F. Solomon on the Global Product Management Talk on Monday, September 23, 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.
