    Product management is the greatest job on earth, but even excited, motivated product champions can start to wonder "What's next?  Is there a bigger role for me? What don't I know about moving my career forward, either within the product sphere or outside it?"  

    Find out about the skills you might need to get that next promotion, or land that senior role.  Is industry knowledge more important than staff management? How much technical expertise is required? How do you get that "bigger picture" of your own organization?  

    Faisal Khalidi Director, Digital Product Management at Canada Post Corporation has over 17 years of product management experience across the technology sector.  His career developed across different organizations and that’s provided him with broad insight into what’s required for a Product Manager to advance.  A digital leader supporting strategic development across the organization, he is a strong advocate of building the right tools at the right time to constantly improve online and mobile experiences for all Canadians.  With a keen eye for the bigger picture while fostering accountability and ownership, Faisal leads a team of 10 product managers and owners with clear objectives, a focus on skills development and education, and guidelines for next steps in their careers.

    Change is hard. But not changing is likely not an option either. As a product management leader making the case for transformation while it might seem hard, making the actual transition to Agile can be even harder. 

    While Agile is practiced in many technology companies it is still new or at the early stages of transformation in many organizations. This event will focus on what Agile processes can bring about in your organization, how to lead and support the change through.
