Coaching Product Teams – a Practical Workshop for Leaders

· July 20, 2020

About the Program

The most common issue facing high growth product companies is the drift that happens between what the engineering team is building and what the Sales team is selling. This chasm can make or break the product.
Product leaders need to continuously balance the need of the company to meet revenue projections and still achieve the product outcome. In such a situation, it becomes critical to coach your Product Team to recognize and be capable to navigate the challenges with expertise.

Arjun Saksena, is the co-founder, VP Products & GTM at GrowthSimple, where he has taken a back-of-the-napkin idea all the way to signing commercial agreements with a number of large partners. Previously, he has held Product roles at Adobe, Yahoo! and Evernote. He has also been an early member of two successful startups – FastForward Networks (acquired by Inktomi) and Streamlogics (acquired by Thomson Reuters).
He has run multiple workshop coaching corporate Product Teams to be outcome-oriented in Europe, Canada, and India.
