This month's meet up is focused on the business side of Agile development, the business side. Companies build products for a reason and its usually something to do with profits and the person(s) in charge of that is the product manager. Depending on how large and complex the product, product management could rest with a single person or on a department.
This month's meet up features two product managers, one from an established fast growing company and another from a start up to give you a from the trenches look in to the world of product management. To top of the event, there will be a short session on putting your idea in to practice via the business model canvas.

About Richard Moh (Dick):
When away from keyboards and boardrooms, I spend most my time with whiskey, tobacco (hand-rolled) and cooking with friends. Odd as it sounds, these three activities actually landed me opportunities: both personal and professional lah.
I have always been into startups for one very simple reason: the people. Startups begin with a group of builders working in alignment. To me, startup is not about the phase of the company rather the mentality of a striving towards a common milestone.
