Product Camp Columbus

Product Camp Columbus

COLUMBUS PRODUCT CLUB IS HOSTING COLUMBUS' FIRST PRODUCT CAMP UNCONFERENCE. PRODUCT CAMP IS BRINGING TOGETHER PRODUCT MANAGERS, PRODUCT OWNERS, AND EVERYONE RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING, CURATING, AND IMPLEMENTING PRODUCT VISION. FROM FORTUNE 100 COMPANIES TO STARTUPS, IF YOU BUILD AND GROW A PRODUCT, THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE.


What's an Unconference?


An unconference is a conference organized, structured and led by the people attending it. Instead of passive listening all attendees and organizers are encouraged to become participants with discussion leaders providing moderation and structure for attendees.

At the unconferenced event topics are not predetermined, keynote speakers have not been assigned, panels have not been arranged. Instead, the event lives and dies by the participation of you and other attendees. So whether you come prepared to run a full workshop or presentation, lead a Q&A, or just lead or contribute to an open discussion, all formats are welcome.

What to Expect The Day Of

Unconference isn't your typical conference! We start things off without a session line-up. On the morning of the event, we'll hear the session 'pitches' and then each participant will be asked to vote for 3 sessions that he or she would like to attend. The sessions with the most votes will be scheduled into rooms, and everyone will fly off to their favorite sessions!

What You Need to Bring

Your ideas! You have great things to share with the Product community in Columbus, so come prepared with a discussion to facilitate or something to present! You can come prepared with a talk and slides or host a roundtable - it's really up to you. You never know what you'll learn or who you'll meet.

Who's The Product Manager Anyway?

Product managers are in high demand. They are often referred to as "mini-CEOs" due to the ambiguous nature of the role and the skills and traits an ideal product manager possesses.

So what does a product manager do?

Product management is one of the most fluid roles in any organization. Depending on the organizational structure, a product manager's role will vary from company to company.

Join us to learn more about how product managers commonly operate in modern software organizations and what skills and traits you can develop to position yourself for a role as a product manager.

Meet Jay Clouse

Jay once ran a popular media organization into the ground.

Early in his college career, Jay undertook the challenge of leading Ohio State's long-running satirical newspaper, The Sentinel. His team failed to print or distribute a single issue, and The Sentinel has completely ceased to exist.

Armed with the lessons and scars of this experience, Jay has gone on to successfully lead several organizations serving entrepreneurs and community leaders, including Startup Weekend and the Create Columbus Commission.

Following his calling to entrepreneurship, Jay helped start his first technology startup, Tixers, which was sold in 2015.

After a stint in product management with CrossChx, Jay now helps entrepreneurs and creatives to level up and accelerate their work.

Are You Innovating or Stuck in Innovation Theater?

cielogo.jpg

Featuring Ryan Frederick, Principal at AWH, and Brett Buchanan, Product Management at Gap Inc.

Hyper-growth start-ups are driving established companies out of the Fortune 500 and "disrupting" entire industries on a regular basis. Corporations find themselves more than ever in need of change, but many struggle to keep pace with the rapid pace of innovation.

The traditional management practice of planning and control stifles enterprise innovation. To succeed, corporations need a different organizational structure. In this talk, Brett will discuss how today's world demands a new management approach that transforms the risk of change into an asset.

Join CIE, Ryan Frederick, and Brett Buchanan to learn about practicing sustainable growth and innovation through new approaches and techniques.

This interactive workshop will include a brief overview with time for application and Q&A.
Parking: Available in the Lane Avenue or Tuttle Park Place parking garages.

Success through Failure: An Intro to Product Management

Product Management is an emerging discipline everyone will find more and more commonly in their professional lives. But what, exactly, is Product Management, and how does this discipline intersect with product development? In this presentation, you'll learn the difference between a Product Manager and a Product Owner (is there one?), how Product Management fits into an iterative product life cycle, and the differences we often see between "ideal" modern Product Management and the realities of Product Management in the industry.

Meet Derek DeHart

Derek DeHart is a Product enthusiast, previously a product-delivery consultant and now a Product Owner at CoverMyMeds. Derek is also the co-founder of a startup nonprofit called DACA Time.
