You can only manage what you can measure. You’ve probably heard this old saying before, and it is widely applicable when it comes to product management. You need to choose the right metrics to look at and have a good understanding of them in order to be able to optimize every single stage of your product development process. This is what the MVP Academy Batch of 2016 learnt this week in a workshop delivered by Bogdan Ripa, Director of Product at Vector Watch & MVP Academy Coach.
Entrepreneur at heart, Bogdan has Co-Founded his first startup when he was only 21 years old. He started by doing outsourcing work (consultancy for websites, web apps, ERP systems, analytics tools), but he got bored by doing repetitive things and decided to make a shift and start building his own products. 6 years later, the company he Co-Founded was bought by Adobe Romania, where he worked in engineering and product management until last year. Bogdan is an experienced product manager that enjoys creating products to help people deliver excellent online experiences for their customers. He is now Director of Product for Vector Watch, while offering hands-on product support to the startups that are currently accelerated in MVP Academy Batch of 2016.
