Betina Evancha is fascinated by the intersection between hardware, software and product teams and how they can impact the everyday lives of real people. She is currently the VP of Product Management at Peloton, focused on Product Strategy across Peloton’s hardware and software product lines. Betina is responsible for scaling and coaching the Product Management, Analytics, and Research teams, driving the overall product strategy, and advocating for member-focused decision-making at all levels of the organization. When not thinking about product, Betina loves running, baking, and building elaborate block structures for her son Adam to knock down.
Building teams is difficult for any leader and even harder when the product experiences high growth in a short time.
In this session, Betina will share tactics she has used to grow her team in tandem with their product for maximum benefit. She will talk strategies to:
- Empower Teams With A Unified Vision With Targeted Goals;
- Find The Balance Between Autonomy & Alignment While Keeping Forward Momentum For The Team;
- The Challenges & Learnings She Has Encountered Throughout This Journey and
- What The Future For The Peloton Product Team Looks Like
Friction can occur even when teams have the same intended outcome. How do you make change happen when a project seems to be tied down with weights in terms of pushing forward and the obstacles as big as everest.
This panel will provide a candid discussion with peers who will share what has worked for them for building great culture and process and why the two together are key to progress.
