As a mechanical engineer, you play a critical role in bringing new innovations to market. You are the technical expert that can best visualize the complex interplay of physical mechanisms and technologies to help transform a concept into a functional product. But to be successful, you must be able to effectively communicate your ideas with other key stakeholders, including product management. A lack of clarity and team alignment is one of the most common barriers that prevent teams from moving forward quickly and efficiently.

Join our 2nd Builds & Banter session on "How to Increase Your Influence to Build Better Products, Faster" led by product design & manufacturing experts with backgrounds from Radius Development, Apple, Oculus, Verb Surgical (and some high profile projects still under NDA) to discuss:

  • Techniques to increase your influence with product management to remove critical roadblocks more quickly.
  • How to deepen your understanding of the entire product development puzzle, including business, technology, and market factors, to build better products.
  • The do’s and don’t of communication styles to more effectively share your ideas and gain team alignment.
