* Measuring what matters: What to measure when you shift to product.
* Getting to product metrics fast: How to measure product value streams in a traditionally project-oriented organization.
* Aligning with the business: How to focus teams on generating new business value while negotiating priorities like tech debt.
* Empowering teams: How to motivate teams in new product structures to identify and overcome their constraints and dependencies.

Your Tasktop co-hosts—Nicole Bryan, VP Product Development, and Naomi Lurie, Sr Director of Product Marketing—will share real-life stories from enterprises using Tasktop Viz to make the shift to product. They’ll also share best practices on how to get started and literally get insights within days.
