Kerry Haider

Kerry Haider, Senior Product Management Consultant

My path to becoming a Product Manager began with a Product Design major at Ohio State University, but paths have a weird way of curving. What started as Product Design became Psychology and Art History as I realized I liked design, but I liked what people thought about design more.

 

The creative side never left, but somewhere along the way my interests pulled me to technology and the web. I was drawn to become a Technical Product Manager (also a Certified Scrum Product Owner, for those who follow the Agile methodology) not only because I like to crawl around in people’s brains, but because I love bringing concepts into reality…and it doesn’t hurt that I look at almost everything under the lens of user experience. Now UX is less about how a product feels when held, and more about how that UX works with the UI to produce the desired behavior on a website. No matter the site or product at hand, my throughline has always been to create elegant solutions for the end user.

 

My heartbeat is this: simple, intuitive, efficient.

 

And I really don’t like the answer to ever be “because it’s always been done that way.”
