API Product Management 101:
Survival Guide for Non-Technical PMs

Watch the talk: YouTube

Are you a non-technical product manager tasked with leading a tech-heavy product such as an API? It can be intimidating to be responsible for a product that you may not have a technical background in. However, with the right strategies and mindset, it is possible to be successful also when you come from a non-technical or non-traditional background. In this talk, I explained how to learn on the job and hit the ground running. The focus was on API product management, based on first-hand experience, but the principles could be applied to any technical product or a new field you’re entering as a PM.

Main Takeaways: skills and principles for success in a tech-heavy environment, digital mindset, and cross-pollination; managing APIs as products, API types, life cycle, key success factors and KPIs.

Product-Led Summit Amsterdam
Amsterdam, the Netherlands – May 2023

Game of (product) thrones:
Survival framework for less death and more success

Exploring succeeding in product, while also taking care of ourselves – both our career and our well-being. These go closely together, and improvements in one area help improve the other, but we don’t (usually) address them holistically. Additionally, isn’t it weird for product professionals that we tend to forget the ‘product mindset’ when it comes to ourselves, our relationships, and personal and career goals?

Main Takeaways: Mental models, product management frameworks and best practices that can inform us and help navigate managing oneself as 'our own, most important product'.

Product Ownership comes with different challenges due to diverse nature of the work itself, as well as industries, organizations and products we serve.

Especially if you come from a non-tech or non-traditional background. This talk shares personal experiences and learnings, as well as best practices and theory, in order to help you on this journey.

Main Takeaways: Product skills vs. domain knowledge; learning to learn and managing the 'not-learned'; digital mindset; working with(in) technical teams.

Vrsac, Serbia – June 2016

Technology for positive changes in society
(Tehnologijom do pozitivnih društvenih promena)

Main Takeaways: The cities of Serbia are wonderful, however, they have been plagued by one problem for a long time - hateful graffiti. But imagine that each of us has the solution at hand, in our mobile phone. Let's drive hatred from the streets, show how funny and open we are, and prove that our cities and neighborhoods are a place for diversity and inclusion.
