About the panel
Deciphering Product Roles: Product Manager vs. Product Owner
Join us for an interesting panel discussion to discover the future of Product Management roles. Let’s get closer to unraveling the eternal debate in how product management roles should function between business and tech, especially on the debate between product owner and product manager roles. What is the difference between them? Should we stick to one of the roles? Should we have both roles in the same company? Or is it all the same in the end given automation by ChatGPT :D? Whether you’re an aspiring product professional or a seasoned veteran, you will gain insights to multiple perspectives and walk away with clarity how to tackle practical issues at work.
