The challenges we are facing today are incredibly complex, and we should not be seeking simple solutions. Fortunately, product managers are skilled at understanding complex problems and developing practical solutions. PDMA’s thought leadership is more essential now than ever, and I’m looking forward to learn from our speakers and panelists at PDMA's Innovation in the Connected Age Conference.
