Thank you for reinforcing value driven thinking in a way where I can teach and lead others in my organization.
Erin S., Product Manager, Modernizing Medicine.
What I found particularly useful about the workshop was traveling through the activities of product ownership as a framework for the workshop. The simulation helped me retain the knowledge and identify steps I am not currently taking.
Amanda M, Product Manager, Citrix.
Anjali did a great job with the format and engaging participants. These workshops can be dry, however her approach is refreshing and held our interests for the duration.
