How to Collaborate in a Fortune 500 Tech Company by eBay PM

  • Product School New York 1216 Broadway, 2nd floor New York, NY 10001 (map)

This session will cover the complexities of working with products across the physical and software arena. We'll be covering how ideas and concepts become reality, how a PM works cross-functionally with multiple teams to keep a project flowing and how a PM continues to iterate and improve upon products after they've made it to consumers' hands.

Main Takeaways:
- Collaboration at a large company requires clear communication, empathy, and a sense of humor.
- Large companies tend to have clearly defined roles and ownership for each job type whereas startups these lines can evolve and blur. Being a startup person can help you to succeed and grow faster at a large company by being comfortable taking initiative and expanding the scope of your role beyond the job description.
- Working at a large company with more defined customer problems and collaboration with many teams can help you to be more successful at a startup. Working at a large company can teach you how to turn the large startup mission into more tangible customer problems to attack and help you to create better communication patterns that allow smaller teams to flourish.
