Product Management Metrics – Be the CEO of your product


By Saeed Khan

I was at ProductCamp Boston this past weekend. While it was a beautiful, sunny Saturday outside, about 300 product people decided to spend the better part of the day inside learning, networking and teaching. I saw some familiar faces, such as Steve Johnson, Gopal Shenoy, Jason Micelli, and others, and met a number of new people as well.

One surprise  was meeting Peter Cannon. You probably don’t know Peter. But Peter is a long time reader of this blog and I’ve spoken with Peter previously, but have never met him. What a surprise to meet him in Boston, as he is based in Utah.  And I thought I had come a far distance to attend the event!

I gave my talk on Product Management Metrics to a good crowd and there were a lot of questions and discussion. The presentation is below and I’ve included links at the bottom to some posts I did a while back on the topic.

Thanks to everyone who attended my talk and kudos to the ProductCamp Boston organizers for putting on a great event. But, given the numbers, I think they’ll need a larger venue next year! :-)

  1. Great deck, thanks for sharing! In my role as a requirements analyst, we spend a lot of time focusing on what metrics can tell us about how we and the product are performing, but its tough to know when enough detail is enough. A colleague of mine wrote an interesting piece about key performance indicators (KPIs)in legacy system conversion projects.
