Why are the best product managers not the CEOs of the product? The distinction between the role of a Product and that of a CEO within the context of a product-centric organization is crucial for maximizing success. While a CEO oversees the entire company and sets the broader strategic vision, the best Product leaders excel by immersing themselves in the intricacies of product development, ensuring that each detail aligns with the ever-evolving needs of the market and users. In this webinar, Genesys Cloud Senior Product Director Leslie Chau will be speaking on why the best product managers are not the CEOs of the product.
