Interesting Insights For Front Line Product Leaders

What’s unique about Fearless Product Leadership is it’s multiple perspective for product leaders sharing real examples and situations they have to innovate, adapt or figure out the path forward.

Hope is an excellent host, and offers excellent insights from her own work as well of connect dots between shows and industry challenge overall.
