Product Management's Role in Design,' featuring the session title at the top, with photos and names of the panelists below: Ryan Johnson, Chief Product Officer at CallRail; Brian Sondergaard, Chief Technology Officer at SRM; and Gopal Narasimhan, former VP of Data/Digital Product at FedEx Dataworks.

In the realm of product management, the analogy of being the ‘mini-CEO’ of a product often surfaces. This suggests a role with broad responsibilities and leadership akin to a coach. Yet, in the collaborative environment of product design, where decisions are interwoven between engineering, design, and management, is the product manager really calling all the shots?

This panel will explore the dynamic roles of product managers in design and innovation. Are they the coaches directing the team towards strategic goals, or are they players on the field, deeply involved and collaborating at every step?

Join us to hear from seasoned executives who will share their expectations of product management in the design space and insights on what distinguishes top product managers.
