93%
of consumers say companies
have a responsibility to look
beyond profit to positively
impact society
75%
of consumers would
consider not buying from a
company that demonstrates
poor ethics
52%
of consumers say they’re
more worried about
technology’s ethical issues
than they were a year ago
Why act now?
There is rising pressure for technologists to be held accountable
for the impacts of what they create.
Expectations are shifting for the role of business in the world
Trust &
Trustworthiness
Keeping
consumers’ &
employees’ trust in
the business,
processes and
solutions you offer
becomes key.

Responsible Product Management
Responsible product management extends product
management with a way of working that aligns technology
and business behavior with environmental, societal, and
individual interests.
It includes the mindset to consider values,
unintended consequences and negative impacts of tech
in order to actively reduce risk and wrong doing. And to
capitalize on opportunities.

Making a Vision the Reality
How to move from Vision to Delivery by Marty Cagan - it’s not enough
Product Vision Describes the future you are trying to create;
Team Topology Defines how structure your teams;
Product Strategy Helps us decide which problems to solve;
Team Objectives Assigns those problems to product teams;
Product Discovery Helps us discover a solution; and
Product Delivery Builds that solution to bring it to market.

“We will not knowingly misrepresent data”
➔ We involve those that own the data
➔ We thoroughly check our calculations
➔ We are transparent at how we come
