About me

Hi, I'm Dal. I'm a Product Manager currently working for SAGE Publishing. I'm passionate about product and tech for good.

What I enjoy most about working in product

  • Finding opportunities using data and qualitative research
  • Learning by testing assumptions
  • Validating a strategy through experimentation

My philosophy

  • De-risking over validation mindset
  • Being less wrong by making better decisions using data and reviewing them
  • Setting goals and tracking how well we're performing against them
  • Helping to build product thinking amongst colleagues, especially non product people

Key skills

  • Adaptable - especially when the problem is unknown, nobody knows where to begin, time constraints budget constraints
  • Self starter - I can self initiate an idea and use tools such as design sprints, Lean Startup to learn cheaply
  • Research - Finding data, qualitative, quantitative and drawing hypotheses from which to synthesise focus

My personal artefacts

What I'm learning more about

Where I want to improve

  • I believe in building product thinking among none product teams - product cannot exist in a silo and companies need the right ecosystems for people to do their best work. I'm learning more about organisational change and culture building at the moment.
