How to communicate with Product Managers

Virginia Murdoch Director of Product, Data & Insights Culture Amp

At the centre of most successful tech startups is a highly productive and trusting relationship between co-founders. Even if they don't start out with distinct 'product' and 'tech' roles, it's not uncommon for founders to end up in tech and product leadership positions as the company grows, and in these cases, product culture really forms around them – but replicating the attributes of the relationship itself does not happen automatically.

What can we do to build strong bonds between tech leads and product managers in cross-functional product teams as a company scales? I will share the things we're trying at Culture Amp, and some of the things we've learned along the way.

Virginia Murdoch

Virginia is Director of Product at Culture Amp. Before Culture Amp, she worked in product at O’Reilly Media and OverDrive, both based in the US. She was a co-founder of the small but lovely software agency Inventive Labs, and of Booki.sh, an ebook marketplace platform for independent booksellers, which was acquired by OverDrive in 2012. She is on the board of WAM, a not-for-profit organisation that provides support to women caught up in the criminal justice system, and provides occasional mentoring to tiny startups. She likes bread.
