Event Details

Houston Product Community – July 8th,
Minimal Viable Product

Come join other Houston area Product Managers, Product Owners and Other Product Professionals as we connect, learn and share experiences.

How the meeting works each month:

9:00am – 10:00am – Connect – This is a structured time of networking. You WILL meet new people. You WILL get to participate in engaging conversations. You WILL NOT have to stand around awkwardly hoping you get a chance to speak to someone.  Most of all, it WILL be fun! If you can’t make it until 9:55, that fine! You can still join us for the rest of the meeting. Dress is casual… Come as you are… Come when you can… Leave when you want to… You don’t need to be there for the entire time… You will be welcomed!

10:00am – 11:00am – Learning – We will have a facilitated learning session during this time each month.

11:00am – 12:00pm – Sharing – A facilitated time of community sharing, usually (but not always) related to the session’s topic. Sometimes we talk about whatever “burning questions” the group may have. Want to listen to how other Product Managers got started in their career? Have a question about Product Development? You’ll have a chance to get input from other Product Managers for just these types of things.

More specifically, the Houston Product Community was founded with these goals in mind: 

  1.  Connect – Provide an environment (with both structured and unstructured social activities) where Product Professionals can network and foster authentic connections with other Product Professionals 
  2. Learn – Provide learning opportunities and resource recommendations for both established and aspiring Product Professionals.
  3. Share – Facilitate and encourage Product Product Professionals to share experiences and practical application of learnings with other Product Professionals.   

Join us on Saturday, May 13th, 2023 for our IN-PERSON SESSION.  The group meets the regularly the second Saturday of each month from 9:00am-12:00pm Central at the Improving-Houston office. (We meet the first Saturday of the month for November and December to better accommodate holidays.)

It is on Saturday for a Reason!

We get it! You’re busy! That’s why we’re holding the meetings on Saturday mornings. If you can’t come until 9:55am, that fine… if you need to leave after right after 11:00, that’s fine too. We understand Saturday may not be the best time for everyone, but that’s true of every day of the week, and traffic being light on Saturday mornings is a large factor in us deciding to meet on Saturdays. It is our hope that in exchange for some Saturday morning inconvenience, you find value in knowing you have a chance to be an active, contributing member of a community with others that practice the “Craft of Product”.  So please come join us!

Is this Community of Practice a good fit for me?

The topics and discussion each month will be geared towards adding value to the “toolkits” of both aspiring and practicing Product Managers, Product Owners and Other Product Professionals. Scrum Masters and Developers who are seeking to better understand how they can add more value to their relationship with their Product Manager/Owner will likely benefit from any given meeting as well.

A few practical items:

  • You must register on Eventbrite to attend (last minute is OK)
  • Bring something to take notes with
  • Meetings usually run between 80-100 in attendance.
  • You may be required to present a valid form of identification (e.g. drivers license) to register at the front desk of the building when you arrive.
  • Attire is casual (yes, jeans and a tee shirt are fine!)
  • Coffee and Water will be provided.
  • After the session, many members go out to lunch at Marini’s Empanada House and continue talking about product. This is informal, just for fun and not a requirement to attend the session.
  • Searching for a “Houston Product Management Meetup”… We are a “Community of Practice” of Houston-Based Product Managers, Product Owners and Other Product Professionals (Product Designers, Product Development, Product Analyst, etc.)
  • Attendee list will be shared with our host (Improving) for communications about future Houston Technology community events.
