Building for outcomes that drive business metrics
As a high-growth startup, it's easy to fall into The Build Trap. At ThriveDX, we worked to constantly escape the trap of building for the stake of building. To combat this, I centered my efforts around data by identifying KPIs, measuring iteratively, and prioritizing outcomes over outputs. Additionally, I served as a storyteller on our team, helping to share metrics we pushed and to advocate for the importance of strong product teams.
Finding product-market fit for a diversely motivated group
As the product manager of instruction, I was responsible for the product experience of our instructors, their surrounding operations teams, and the resulting student experience -- spanning both in-classroom interactions and curriculum quality. These diverse audiences, united by their goal to create and experience learning, required that our product team resolve a diverse set of problems and perspectives in simple solutions. To achieve this, I used user experience research techniques and fail-fast methodology to validate hypotheses early and often, helping to preserve our engineering time and escape the build trap.
Delivering dynamic interdepartmental roadmaps
When I first joined ThriveDX, I was part of a shared engineering team and split resources with 2-3 other product managers across separate customer topologies. This meant constantly stack-ranking my priorities against those of others, communicating cross-functionally, and in parallel, working with leadership to build out instruction's first dedicated product team. I communicated with leadership, on behalf of my teams, what we wanted to build, when, and why, obtaining buy-in from key stakeholders at all levels of the strict company hierarchy.
