Building Products with ML: A Workshop for Product & Engg Managers

Submitted Aug 20, 2019

Machine learning (ML) has seen substantial adoption, and a large number of data
science teams are being created. Taking on ML projects requires product managers
and engineers to learn an ML approach to problem solving, to be able to effectively
work with data scientists and data engineers. There exists a huge gap in understanding
- both cultural & technical - in most organizations since product owners and the
engineering teams have not worked with ML before. The ML approach is sufficiently
different from a usual software engineering approach that it needs deeper
understanding and adoption

The aim of this workshop is to acquaint product managers and engineering managers
with ML ways, to effectively lead ML teams producing outcomes of value.


The workshop starts with an introduction to ML to get an intuitive understanding of ML algorithms work,
and covers the typical project lifecycle and roles and responsibilities. It also covers
common mistakes while executing ML products followed by best practices & design
patterns from an ML software perspective. Finally, there is a brief session on ML data
governance challenges. Multiple case studies are discussed to illustrate these concepts,
along with interactive sessions to practice applying the content to custom usecases.


Should have 5+ years experience in the Industry. Preferably people who
have worked as a Product Manager / Engineering Manager before.
