Description
Can product management make a difference?

The Austin Product Camp has an opportunity to demonstrate the difference good product management can make. We could select a few non-profit organizations, and do a little product management for them over the rest of the year. Let’s see if we can increase their offering’s value within the constraints they live in.

I’ll bring a few proposed organizations, you can do the same.

During our session, we’ll brainstorm about how to move forward. If there’s enough interest we could break into groups and make it a contest.

Bottom line: the community benefits from our help, at least I believe so. Participants learn from each other, I know I will. Austin Product Camp will be recognized as a force of good in our community. We can demonstrate the value of good product management practices.
