Product and Pretzels Study Group

Navigating the twists of product management and product leadership in the public interest.

If you are interested in the intersection of Product Management and the public interest, this is the study group for you. We will meet remotely three times the rest of the term: April 14th, April 21st, and April 28th 12-1:30pm ET, covering a range of topics, including (but not limited to): product management roles and careers, product development and ethics, tech and government, understanding metrics with people at the center, product delivery, community roles in building products, and more.

Hosted by Kathy Pham (HKS faculty, former Google Product Manager, and a Founding Product Member of the US Digital Service), Nagela Nukuna (MPA, HKS; MBA, Sloan), and Medha Patki (MPP, HKS). Product and Pretzels is part of Product and Society.

Registration is required. Sign up here by April 7th, 2021. In recognition of our current times, attendance at only one session this term is required to be part of the study group.

The name of this group was established pre-pandemic days when we were able to gather around a table for real pretzels while discussing the role of product in the world. We are keeping the name in the excitement that we return to those days again.
