Design is a specialized skill, and as a PM, it can be intimidating—especially if it’s not your natural inclination. (Plus, there’s usually a design team to deal with that stuff, right?) But that mentality is a missed opportunity; it’s equally important for PMs to keep design top-of-mind when making decisions.
Having spent most of his career as a Product Manager, Latif strongly believes that design should always be a priority for product managers. In this talk Design Communication in Product Management, Latif shares essential and actionable design principles that can be implemented in any product setting, and breaks down how PMs can put design at the forefront of their product strategy.
Latif Nanji is the co-founder and CEO of Roadmunk, a product roadmapping platform that enables organizations such as The Coca-Cola Company, Citibank, MasterCard and Adobe to visualize and collaborate on strategic plans.
Latif’s entrepreneurial chops extend beyond Roadmunk. He co-founded Pragmatic CEO, a Toronto meetup for tech entrepreneurs, and Pokerspace.com, an online social network for poker players. As an entrepreneur, he has raised over $3 million in venture and angel funding.
Latif’s background spans all things startup: from leadership and sales to product management and design. In his off-time, Latif is an avid reader, rock climber and skier.
