It is often said that a great idea is worthless without polished execution.
In this talk, Akshay explained some tactics for executing your ideas within an organization. This could be as simple as a new feature that you want to build, or something as complex as a total priority shift.
As a Product Manager, you don't have the luxury of authority for forcing a team to do something. In many cases, the teams that you need to convince may not even be in your organization.
Akshay Kannan is a Product Manager on the Android team at Google, currently working on Authentication and Identity. He joined Google in 2011 through the APM program, and comes from a software engineering background. He launched Autofill in Android, works on making 911 location better, and has led many other initiatives to use the sensors and smarts on a mobile phone to build more assistive end-user experiences.
