Join us for this exciting installment of Ask a PM, a virtual event series dedicated to sharing tips, tricks, and best practices straight from the product management trenches.
In this edition, we’re bringing you an exclusive AMA with Shivansh Chaudhary, Sr. Product Manager at AWS, on the topic of transitioning into a Product Management career.

Moderated by Cassie Gamm, a Mixpanel PM who’s blazed the trail from teacher to Techincal Support Engineer before eventually finding her calling as a Product Manager, you’ll be sure to hear fascinating anecdotes and useful advice for shaping your own career trajectory.

Product decisions are crucial for the success of our companies, yet we frequently get them wrong. Often our framework for decision-making relies not on data, but instead on the basis of opinions, intuition, consensus, and biases. Even if we do have data, it’s not always interpreted correctly, or we may read too much into it.
Join Itamar Gilad and learn how to strike the right balance between using data and intuition, to make decisions based on evidence. Modeled after the scientific method, Itamar will walk through his Confidence Meter, a tool he developed to help teams shorten the time spent on making product decisions while increasing the likelihood of making the right ones.
