When ROI, MOSCOW and RICE are not enough

Anna Miedzianowska

Ocado Technology @ Principal Product Manager

As humans we all want a successful, fulfilling career. But what does a ‘good’ career look like when we’re faced with an ever-changing set of technologies and a skillset that’s being defined under our feet? How do we know we’re focused on the right things? Enter the spreadsheet. Product leaders across the world are using hand-made tools to define what ‘good’ looks like for their teams. They hope to help people feel like they know what’s expected of them and how to grow in the right direction. At Progression Jonny’s spent the last 18 months researching their efforts and looking for something better. He believes that a better way lies beyond the reach of any one company. To achieve career nirvana we all need to work together to build defining careers, not just jobs. Jonny will take you through his learnings and give you the tools to both map your team’s dream careers and follow your own.

About Anna

While Anna's names might seem unpronounceable at first (it's pronounced A-N-A, by the way), she is defiantly not someone who is hard to understand. Making complex things simple is at the core of what she does. For the past 4 years, Anna has been applying that principle at Ocado Technology.

Her first role at Ocado was to improve the lives of their delivery drivers by providing software that helps them be the best they can be. She did this by regularly asking them what they needed (I know, who does that?).

Now Anna is Head of Product and her goal is to keep Ocado at the bleeding edge of customer experience by tightening feedback loops, assessing value and validating delivery. Sounds simple? It is, thanks to Anna.
