Does ProductTank have a Code of Conduct?

We don't have a "ProductTank" Code of Conduct per se, however we do have a Mind the Product Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct is primarily applied to our conferences and other in-person events. However, please be aware that we expect members of our discussion spaces (including ProductTank) to adhere to an equivalent standard of behaviour.

Our Mind the Product Code of Conduct begins with:

The goal of the conference is to create a safe environment for the free flow of ideas so we can push product management forward. We expect everyone at the conference to show respect for the person, if not the ideas, and conduct themselves in a respectful and professional manner while at the conference and the after-party.

Go to our Mind the Product site to read more.

We also have a Mind the Product Manifesto, which begins with the following:

"We believe product management has evolved significantly over the last several years. Gone are the days of the weighty tomes we called product requirements documents. Gone are the days of project managing releases. Gone are the days of defining products in an ivory tower and then throwing it across the wall to the engineering team to deliver. Today product management is much more than a job title - it's a discipline, and to some, a calling."
