I am currently working on a chatbot Eddy that will help people to navigate in the world of product management.

- Willingness to learn from others, because the market, its forces and customer expectations change frequently, and constant learning is the only way to meet these expectations and to be one step ahead of competitors;
- Willingness to change things beyond the area of responsibilities, because ownership is the only way to cover gaps between teams’ and functions’ zones of responsibility and to provide integrity of customer experience.
