In this episode, we sit down with Corey Grant, Head Of Product Management at Yellowfin BI, an embedded BI and analytics platform dedicated to enabling product managers to improve their application's analytical experiences. Corey explores his journey of breaking into product management, the opportunity and challenges of embedded products, and much more.
Key talking points include:
- The power of taking a side-step to progress your product career.
- Tips for senior stakeholders on looking at the entire product journey.
- Why product design is so pivotal to a successful embedded experience.
- The value of joining in and contributing without expecting anything in return.
- Why you should “eat your own dog food.”
A little about the guest
Corey worked in product roles before most people even called them product roles. After engineering opened the door to automotive, marketing roles led to product roles in both hardware and software companies. Now back in Australia, after time spent working in Canada, he can confidently state that beer and dumplings are staples of product meetups everywhere!
Having been in product roles for almost 20 years, Corey has worked with some of the world’s biggest brands, before joining Yellowfin over two years ago. In his spare time, he likes to read about audio gear and mountain bikes that he can’t afford.
