Wed Oct 25 11am PDT Lean Culture Lean Product Principles in a B2B Environment
How do you apply continuous product discovery and lean product principles in a B2B environment?
While the core methodology remains, a number of differences in a B2B setting require tailoring our practices. Join us for this webinar and we’ll share our approach to:
- Collaborating with sales/marketing teams to gain access to customers
- Implementing lean discovery practices for the multiple roles involved in the buying process
- Drawing evidence-based conclusions despite a harder-to-reach set of customers and/or smaller pool of users
- Responding to product requests from key clients
This is a live webinar, so you’ll have a chance to ask questions during our Q&A session.
Presenter: Holly Hester-Reilly (@hr2productsci) is the Founder and CEO of H2R Product Science, a product management coaching and consulting firm that teaches the science of high-growth product development, and the host of the Product Science Podcast. Holly is a former Columbia University research scientist and has spent the last 15 years leading product initiatives at startups, high-growth companies, and enterprises like FalconX, MediaMath, Shutterstock, The Lean Startup Co, Unilever, Capital One, and Weight Watchers.

Wed Oct 12 11:00 PST Lean Culture: Accidental Learnings of an Accidental PM
Business is a complex (not just complicated) endeavor. Most successes happen in spite of errors. And most successes are temporary, depending on your time horizon. Depending on the sources of errors, and your mindset, these can be insanely frustrating, or liberating. Bill Seitz will share some of his learnings, so you can experience more “interesting” errors.
Speaker: Bill Seitz
- Bill started his first Internet startup the year Mosaic came out.
- He has built a half-dozen product teams, as combo CTO and CPO, all in different industries, leading to two IPOs (one long-delayed), and one strategic acquisition.
- But he still can’t afford to retire.
