ONE THING... about New Zealand!

I spent the last 3 weeks in Auckland, Wellington, Queenstown and other locations in New Zealand for business and pleasure. I’m happy to report the product culture there is growing rapidly.

Thanks to a partnership with Catch Design, I traveled the islands doing product roadmapping workshops with organizations like Mercury2degrees and Optimal Workshop, plus meeting great folks like Andrew Tokeley, who organizes the Wellington ProductTank.

Product people in NZ were fully engaged with tools and tips for focusing on outcomes and happy to get up out of the details of features, dates, dependencies, and all things Gantt. How do you find the product culture outside the US? Discuss.

I’ll be moderating a panel on How to Drag Our Organizations Into the 21st Century at Mind the Product’s Leadership Forum next week. Will I see you there?

Hiring? Let me know about your difficult to fill positions and I'll highlight them in future issues.
