XO Group EVP of Product on a PM’s Superpower—User Science
User Science as a Superpower
Successful product managers help their organizations identify and build magical products. These products solve their users’ needs. While finding the perfect user-product fit is rarely easy, trained product managers can find great fits consistently through User Science. Product managers employ user science to understand both user needs (identifying which problem to solve) and user behaviors (understanding how and why users react to products). Brent Tworetzky (Executive Vice President of XO Group, which includes The Knot) walks you through a simple system that brings User Science to life for you and your team.
