CTO Club JLM: CPO VS. CTO w/ Avidan Lamdan – VP Product at Synamedia

February 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us for this month’s CTO Club JLM, sponsored by AWS. This event is exclusively for CTOs/VP R&D, so do not register if you are not in this role.

Please register here in order to get location:

On the speaker: Avidan Lamdan – Avidan Lamdan has served many roles in the field of R&D over the years, as CTO & VP R&D in Tvinci, as VP R&D, SVP Product and SVP Strategy at Kaltura, and is now VP Product in Syanmedia which was formerly NDS (acquired by Cisco for 5 billion dollars in 2012).

On the talk: “CPO Vs. CTO” – Whilst the CPO is expected to control the product roadmap and is supposed to be responsible for the “what”, the CTO is responsible for the “how”. Yet both are expected to define the “when”. In many cases, the CPO is the “ex” CTO, which makes things even worse.
In Avidan’s lecture, he will touch upon the natural roles for each of the players (CTO Vs. CPO) and will try to define the right boundaries for each in order to allow the best execution of roadmaps, whilst maintaining proper interfaces and fair play rules.

*Feel free to share the details with other CTOs/ VP R&D (not others, as this is exclusive for these roles)*
