I had the opportunity to speak last night at the first meeting of the Chicago Product Managers Association (ChiPMA) meetup group ( We had pizza, beverages and a great group of about 15 people looking to learn about and share product management experiences. The presentation centered on six techniques for quickly creating and communicating ideas using visual templates.

Following the presentation, we had a group dialog about creative thinking techniques and future topics of interest for ChiPMA meetings.

If you are interested in product management, networking with the product management community or just expanding your knowledge of the digital product space we hope to see you at the next ChiPMA meeting!
