Q: What is it like working as a Product Management Director?

January 2019
Product Management Director:
Back in late 2012, Altisource opened their beachhead in Boston, calling it "Altisource Labs". It was to be a software innovation center, developing state-of-the-art software for the mortgage banking industry. They hired a bunch of smart start-up veterans, used a modern tech stack and tooling, and incentivised them all with market-level pay plus some pseudo-equity grants, with the idea that the software businesses would eventually spin out from the mothership. Altisource was investing a LOT in this radical idea. Fast forward a few years, corporate revenue tanks due to regulatory issues with their one main paying customer, and Altisource decides that building a software company out of nothing takes too long, and eventually lays of the majority of the staff, in a painfull, incremental process of multiple small layoffs spread over ~ 2 years. A grand experiment failed miserably.

April 2015
"The power of networking and inclusion."
Product Management Director:
As a Product Manager, I focused a lot of my energies early in my career on building a knowledge base in all areas that touched my role. I got "stuck in the weeds" on many occasions. While this gave me confidence, I learned that including others in the discovery process for any new initiative was far more effective. It gave a sense of ownership to those that contributed; they were more motivated, and at the end of the day, this resulted in better outcomes.
