100 Product Managers Interview with David Croney & Fred Li from Pivotal Labs & CoreLogic

Mar 21, 2017

Episode 28: “Past Pairs” with David Croney & Fred Li, Pivotal Labs & CoreLogic

By: Suzanne Abate @suzanneabate

There's a rule at Pivotal Labs that little known to the rest of us: the day starts at 9am, finishes at 6pm and nobody brings work home.

What's even more amazing is that most Pivotal folks arrive before 9am to fill up on breakfast - one of many office perks alongside ping pong tables and video game stations.

But all of this just amounts to something even more sacred - a company culture that fosters kindness and accountability.

In this episode of 100 PM, we are joined by David Croney, Lead Product Manager at Pivotal Labs and Fred Li, Senior Technical Product Manager at CoreLogic. This pairing of perspectives is a perfect reflection of the Pivotal way, an approach to product development rooted in pairing.

CoreLogic came to Pivotal first as clients and have (since evolved into collaborators)[]. Fred says it's a mix of the process-thinking and the bulk candy!

Tune in below for the full story, which also includes:

  • A brief history of Extreme Programming (XP)
  • Shifting enterprise from a project mindset to a product mindset
  • Seeding a process-oriented company culture
