He pioneered the first Product Management course offered in the Engineering school at UC Berkeley, which has over 400 PM alumni practicing in industry, and recently released “The Influential Product Manager – How to Lead and Launch Successful Technology Products” a guide to navigating the challenging collaborative aspects of the product manager’s role.
