On January 20, 2022, Marty Cagan is doing an event at Lean Product Lean UX Silicon Valley. And this time he’s talking about Product Operations  

Over the past few years, many companies have followed the trend of creating a Product Ops function. But what exactly does Product Ops mean? And is it always helpful to product teams?

Marty will share the six different models of Product Ops, which ones he think are truly helpful, harmful, and harmless.

We have four tickets to give away!

Great article. The notion of Product Ops being a Force Multiplier is a message that resonates with me. Product Ops must enable and support the EMPOWERMENT of the Product Org at scale.  Product Org in this context is PM, Eng, and Design.

Great point @kevinyuan. You might enjoy our panel discussion on product ops that we had at our last Product Excellence Summit. Check out Building a Successful and Scaling Product Ops Team that @aimonhelped host -- it echo’d a lot of those themes.

There’s been a great deal of discussion, with two opposing camps emerging between Marty Cagan and Melissa Perri & Denise Tilles. Ultimately, through Marty’s post, and his aspiration for the Force Multiplier model I suspect they may not be all that far apart, after all, @scott.baldwin

Interesting article! I always thought Product Ops would be responsible only for tools, data and experimentation. It was enlightening to see that in some companies it is a wider umbrella of skills and responsibilities like product leadership and even product marketing. The Force Multiplier Model seems to be providing a clear definition of the role at all levels.

It’s definitely starting to take some shape as a model.

How are things setup where you work @kevinyuan @Mike Goitein and @leoK?

p.s. If you’re interested in discussing where it’s going and how others are practicing Product Ops, check out our Product Ops group.

Good callout re: Denise Tilles’ perspectives on this @Mike Goitein. The recent chat on Melissa’s podcast was interesting for sure.
