Derek Burgess

I approach product development as a dialog. Conducting research, analyzing what is cutting edge and asking the right questions are important elements that contribute to a products success. I believe Product Managers can do their best work when they remain agile and creative. By considering the feedback of project stakeholders and helping curate the design process, they can quickly expand or develop new products. Through driving strategic workshops, meetings, and critiques, they can bring the team together.

I’m BIG on helping develop internal tools and processes that minimize chaos and empower individuals to contribute to the companies success. I can also sit down and push pixels or write code if that is what’s needed to unblock a project. My strengths are: being thoughtful and open to ideas, working quickly and sharing often, observing data/experience and building on it.
