10/1/12 Global Product Management Talk on From Idea to Reality w/ Glen Lipka, VP UX
by prodmgmttalk

Glen Lipka, Vice President of User Experience, Marketo, Discusses How Product Management, User Experience (UX) And Engineering Teams Can Work Together To Achieve A Great Product Outcome

User experience, specifically “design” is just a decision and there is decision in every design process. Who makes the decisions is not necessarily a specific designer, but rather an accumulation of all the decisions that got made by everyone in the company. It might be engineering people, an end-user, a manager or a researcher, etc. but at the end of the day, according to Glen Lipka, the designer is the one who writes the PRD (Product Document Requirements). The UX designer and the Product Manager roles might overlap. At Marketo, UX sits in the middle of engineering in order to iterate with a lot of people. Design doesn’t stop when the product is handed off to engineering, rather it continues until the product ships. According to Lipka, product managers should be a dedicated position that works actively with marketing to provide comprehensive MRDs (Marketing Requirement Documents) that include the competitive landscape, packaging, go-to-market strategy and research. The Product Manager must determine “What is the real problem we are trying to solve.”

Glen Lipka, Vice President of User Experience, Marketo, will speak at the weekly Global Product Management Talk on Monday, October 1, 2012 at the simultaneous times of 4:30 PM Pacific Time, 6:30 PM CST Chicago, and 7:30 PM EST New York.
