Idea Group CEO, Bill Gourlay, has been one of the industry experts fulfilling mentor roles on the 2016 Product Mentor programme (theproductmentor.com). The initiative seeks to provide advice and expertise on all topics related to product management and product development to a global audience, which in turn should improve the overall level of performance of individuals working in these particular roles. Both the Product Mentor and Product Group programmes recognize the lack of formal advice or training available, so invite product leaders to voluntarily share their knowledge with individuals from very diverse backgrounds, roles and industry segments.
As part of this initiative, Bill lead a live webinar on the topic of "Creating a product management team from scratch", which can be viewed below . We hope that you find this session useful and would be delighted to help with any additional questions or challenges that you may have.
