The Silicon Valley Product Group (SVPG) was created to share our lessons learned and knowledge of best practices with our clients. Our four partners are all industry veterans, who have each held executive level positions at major Silicon Valley firms where they have been instrumental in the development of leading products. We are not career consultants; we started SVPG to share what we’ve learned. >> Manifesto >> Team
Leadership vs. Management
I would argue that two of the most importance competencies in building great product organizations, indeed nearly any significant organizational undertaking, are leadership and management. Yet so few people actually consider what each of these really means. Many people just lump the two together. Some think this is what’s taught in MBA programs (it’s not). And sadly there are many that have never experienced strong leaders or strong managers.
