Three's a party: How product, engineering, and design can work together effectively at scale

Come and get a better understanding of how the lead PM, UX, and engineering roles, the trifecta, can work effectively as your team scales. You'll leave with a clear sense of the trifecta's responsibilities, cadence, and activities across each layer of the product organization.
