How to manage teams across continents and work effectively with them
The session will provide all PMs, working with global teams, with some tips and tricks on how to work productively across different time zones. Key lessons will be understanding cultural differences, developing empathy, exhibiting inclusive behavior, and thoughtfulness. A product is as good as the people who make it. Therefore, it's very important for people from different countries that speak different languages to be on the same page in order to ship a world-class product.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Panjab University, India, and a Master's degree in Engineering Management from Duke University. Currently I'm working with the commercial PC group at Lenovo in their Product Management team wherein we work on the industry-leading ThinkPad and ThinkStations of current and future generation. When I look back and connect the dots on all my past learnings, I see how seemlessly they fit together. It all makes sense to where I'm today. My love for hardware technology and gadgets allows me to enjoy the work that I do and it's a way of life for me now. I'd love to exchange ideas with other people working in Product and contribute to each other's growth.
