11/15: Netflix fmr-Product VP Gib Biddle on how to go from strategy to execution

Product Strategy and Execution

How do you reconcile vision and execution? Netflix Former Product VP Gibson Biddle shares the two models he uses to define product strategy and answer the question, “How do we delight customers in hard-to-copy, margin-enhancing ways?” He’ll then share how he puts the strategy into practice via carefully defined metrics and tactics.   Last, he’ll simulate a product strategy meeting, demonstrating the fast-paced “debate, decide, then do” environment at   Netflix as he presents two modern-day, Netflix mini-cases.
