The "Global Product Management Talk" was initially conceived as a virtual forum where people who manage products situated globally could interact in a virtual forum with product management thought leaders.
Since we started in February, 2011, we have produced successful weekly Twitter talks (except for Mondays when Australian & US Holidays occur). Because each talk is on subject matter, tools, resources and methodologies, further enhanced by participant contributions, the content is of vital interest to the global community of product professionals.
This event is unique for a number of reasons:
1. Mini-product camp discussion
The showcased thought leader does not lecture, but actually raises questions for the participants to answer in a "Socratic" atmosphere, while providing background information and comments to forward the discussion
2. Open Forum
It takes place in an open forum on Twitter enabling anyone to participate without barriers beyond Internet connection (Twitter registration is only required for participation, the event could be passively viewed in real time via Twitter search of the hashtag #prodmgmttalk or the transcript could be read after the event offline.)
3. Focus on Issues pertinent to Managing Products/Product Management
4. Podcast Component
In July, 2011, we began broadcasting the verbal commentary of the co-hosts discussing the Twitter stream with the speaker over BlogTalkRadio. The result is a weekly "podcast" further extending reach and participation, as product managers can listen to (one side of) the discussion in real time, and later they can review the documented transcript of the tweets and listen to the edited audio of the broadcast.
The podcast for the weekly Global Product Management Talk events was so well received, in August 2011, we began interviewing participants, organizers and presenters from Product Camps for Product Camp Radio.
