The Concept & Topics

Similarly to a Bootcamp, prior to the Roundtable, the attendees will suggest real-world cases and topics that fit into our agenda. This list of suggested topics and cases will be prioritized upfront by the attendees - facilitated by Jörg Malang (Initiator & founding partner of Senior Product Leadership Group SPLSG).

For Product Leaders, it is vital to have an influence on the strategy of their company and to impact how things are done. Both require leadership beyond being a great product manager. But how? This time we have chosen two topics - based on the suggestions of many Product Leaders with have spoken with during the last months.

Reviews - what do former participants say about the Roundtable?

“I attended the last Product Leader Roundtable… Jörg and the team did a wonderful job of organizing and facilitating a very good and in-depth discussion. It was also a good opportunity to meet fellow product leaders and get to know their perspectives. Compared to the larger conferences, this setting is much more intimate and focused, and in my personal opinion, more helpful in getting in-depth and real-world inputs and guidance. Keep up the good work and I hope to remain an active part of this community.”

Rohan Garg, VP Product @kununu

“I participated in the … Roundtable with solid background knowledge… I was hoping to get some more insight into how other Product Leaders approach this topic. The event exceeded my expectations by a wide margin; we had very open discussions about other challenges and how they solve these… It was eye-opening to me, identifying all the areas where we can further improve our processes. I am looking forward to putting those into practice … The day was well managed… I will definitely join the time, granted my schedule allows me.”

Thomas Berszieck, Head of Product Management @ / GotPhoto

Objectives & Key Results (OKRs)

If done right, this is a very powerful tool to have an influence on the direction of the company. The question is how to overcome obstacles that a product leader in an organization might have. Will focus on three areas:

  • OKR definition

  • OKR ways of working

  • OKR as overarching change management for organizations

To get the discussion ball rolling, we have the following two speakers lined up for you:

Jenny Herald, Chief Product Officer @ Gtmhub, formerly @Microsoft & @Wunderlist

Rohan Garg, VP Product @ kununu

Scaling Product Organizations

As long you have a hand full of Product Managers you are responsible for and an only relatively small development team needs product leadership, there typically is no need to think about scaling the product organization. But what if you have different seniority levels (Senior PO, Head of Product, Director Product, etc.) in your team and there are more than 3-5 agile teams you need to work together with? We will focus on three areas:

  • SAF (Scaling Agile Framework)

  • Staying agile in organizations with more than 5-10 Pos

  • Organizational setup & processes

To get the discussion ball rolling, we have the following two speakers lined up for you:

Arik Reiter, CTO/CPO @ Galeria Kaufhof, Hudsons Bay, Stepstone, Monster &

Jörg Malang, Former CPO @ XING, HOTEL DE & Betsson


Only attendees in an actual product leadership position qualify and only a restricted number of applicants will be selected - based on their experience and potential contribution.
