I’m Melissa Perri, a strategic advisor, author, and board member who works with leaders at Fortune 500 companies and SAAS scale-ups to enable growth through building impactful product strategies and organizations. My passion is helping product leaders become effective Chief Product Officers. I wrote the books Escaping the Build Trap and Product Operations. I taught at Harvard Business School for three years in the MBA program.
Before founding Product Institute, I was a product leader in New York City for various growth stage companies, startups, and Fortune 50 companies. I also did UX design as well as Product Management. Through my company Produx Labs, I used to run a team of consultants who worked with scale up companies and enterprises to determine product strategy and set up product organizations for success.
During my downtime, I enjoy remodeling my house and learning to play golf, albeit poorly.
Ask me anything about product, product management, going out on your own as a solopreneur, becoming a board member, publishing your first book, designing product organizations for scalability, or anything else!
