PDMA Learning and Networking Event
    Thursday, November 21, 2013
    5:30 - 8:00 PM

    Your Oregon Chapter of the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA) - the folks who bring you ProductCamp Portland -  invites you to its November Learning and Networking Event with featured speaker Gerry Langeler.

    Product and business success in general has three fundamental elements - Vision, Process and Output. Unfortunately, not everyone is equally skilled in all three areas. Gerry started forming a model to describe eight “characters” around the presence or absence of those attributes during his time at Mentor Graphics and has been refining it over the years. He will offer an overview of this model at our event. By understanding Gerry’s “Success Matrix”, you will have a better understanding of why some individuals and product teams flourish while others struggle. You will also be able to apply this model to your individual professional growth and career advancement.

    Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and learn from one of the most successful and experienced high-tech executives in Portland.    We will also preview our exciting program for 1H 2014, including ProductCamp Portland 3.0.
