In this fireside chat, Colleen Graneto, who’s led product development in both the Experiences business and now the Payments Platform, explains the underlying principles of product management at Airbnb. By starting with the perfect experience for one user, Colleen and her teams created a product, that extends and enriches the core use of the platform for millions of travelers around the globe in a meaningful way.
