Our world is being shaped by global mega trends, from climate change, to rapid urbanisation, to geo-political turbulence, to emerging technology. The traditional foundations upon which businesses were built are also subject to seismic shifts, and back-office operations must come out from the between the goal posts.

Mastering this concept is the key that will untap immense value locked in the data used by your finance function, and improve it’s effectiveness and efficiency overall.

Session Key Takeaways:

Our industries / careers are changing, and whilst there is increasing opportunity for those working in technology and with technical skills, we must remember the power of human connection to drive sustainable change in our world. Having different experiences and backgrounds in decision making drives better outcomes for companies, customers, and society. Increasing focus on transferable skills increases the likelihood of diverse teams and therefore successful outcomes. For individuals, it opens up a plethora of opportunities outside the traditional ladder career path, so people can find purpose and meaning in their work.

Whilst predictions vary on whether we’ll all be replaced by robots (with Goldman Sachs predicting 300 million jobs lost and Accenture saying 40% of work tasks will be affected by large language models), one common theme across research is that the type of work we do as humans will change. In an ever-changing world, a focus on building strong human skills, such as empathy and vulnerability, and exploring how they can be transferred across careers will be essential to career progression.

You might have experience working on a product in some capacity, and with a product manager… but what do they do, exactly? The life of a product manager isn’t all glamorous strategy documents and customer meetings. (It’s also spreadsheets… a lot of spreadsheets.)

Discover what the responsibilities of a product manager are, and what the typical day to day looks like. We’ll delve into what a typical product needs to bridge the gap between customer needs and engineering solutions. We’ll talk through real-world anecdotes on what that looks like in practice.

We’ll also talk about how to work well across functions in a traditional engineering organisation, to get product and engineering — but also design, support, research, marketing, and sales — all working together for the same customer goal. Lastly, we’ll discuss how to decide whether a career in product management aligns with your passions and ambitions. Whether you’re an industry veteran or a newcomer, you’ll come away with a better sense of how to work as or with a product manager.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • A product manager’s role is not to ship products, but to unblock customers. You don’t always need to ship a product to meet customers’ needs
  • A product manager is the glue that holds the organization together, and fills the gaps where particular roles might be missing. You need to be flexible and adapt to your organization’s current situation
  • There is no one product manager role, they’re all different! A product management role might be exciting for you if you’re good at understanding, synthesising, and communicating ideas, detail oriented, and enjoy juggling many balls at the same time

How often have you heard that ‘Yes this is important, but we don’t have the capacity right now’ or ‘ sure let’s put it in the backlog’?
This is something we should not brush off or take lightly. Accessibility testing is vital especially when your product is a user facing application.

We need to be socially aware as a team and build quality towards our product with making it more accessible.

At least 1 in 5 people in the UK have a long term illness, impairment or disability. Many more have a temporary disability. A recent study found that 4 in 10 local council homepages failed basic tests for accessibility.

This is quite vital and the sooner we as testers can advocate this into our teams, we make our product more accessible, reduce the risk of bad product reviews, reputation and also be more socially aware. Let’s shift left and make accessibility testing built-in our teams.

The Why:

  • Understand why accessibility testing is important
  • How I adapted accessibility mindset
  • How to coach team and bring accessibility into your teams
  • Demonstrate various tools available to perform accessibility testing (with demo)

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Understand why accessibility testing is important
