Megann and I are big supporters of the Toronto Product Management Association (TPMA), www.tpma.ca, a group of interested Product Managers and those who support them active in the Toronto area. We first became acquainted with them through our friend Alan Armstrong, who was one of the founders.
They are great believers in sharing information and best practices in order to develop better Product Management people and processes. The primary route for doing this is through monthly meetings, which are inexpensive and usually well attended.
Some of the members of TPMA are involved in a new adventure to roll out in September: ProductCampToronto. This is modelled on BarCamp, and seeks to bring Product Managers, and those interested in advancing Product Management, together for a one day “unconference” in Toronto. The date is not yet set, but you can check it out at http://barcamp.org/ProductCampToronto.
We hope to be there to contribute our story about understanding your customers as part of the Product Management process.
All the best,
Steve and Megann
