They often fail at onboarding their new Product Managers fast and by doing so they waste opportunity, money, and talent. Why does this happen? And what does it take to have a successfully accomplished and fast onboarding?
This talk outlines how you can structure and optimize your onboarding for new PMs in order to add value ASAP. It will address this recurring theme in Product Management which is a key factor in determining the success of a PM, their team, and their Product. The talk will also highlight the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors to acquire before they can start adding and delivering value. Once a PM starts delivering, the onboarding is completed. The talk will also look at how companies can accommodate better onboarding processes and how to apply them successfully.
