Stop, Collaborate and Listen: Transitioning from UX to Product on a Balanced Team

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Transitioning from UX to Product Management can be a logical next step for UX practitioners who want to get more involved in the business side of a product and have influence over the direction of the entire experience. Sounds awesome right? I thought so. And still do!

At the core, having a UX background provides an incredible advantage, as you can apply the same skills and competencies to create a stellar user experience. But the path to being a successful product manager includes a lot more responsibility, focus, business acumen and team management skills. It’s akin to owning your own business, with your family- and you’re not the CEO.

In this talk I’ll walk through my experience in making the transition from UX to product in an enterprise organization, on a balanced team. I’ll cover the skills that translate well and the new skills that you may want to acquire.
