TALK
Stage 1

english

We all know the stories of successful products and the great people or companies behind them. We talk a lot less about the blood, sweat and tears involved in developing these products (Hopefully, it is more sweat and tears and less blood, though).

However, whether we like it or not, frustrations are part and parcel of developing products. Marc explains the reasons why frustrations are a reality for most of us when creating products, shares his lessons learned (often the hard way) and provides you with a wide range of tools and techniques to better manage the frustrating side of product management.
