I am a Product Manager.
I am Chris Scholtens, a lead product manager from Madison, Wisconsin. I have experience leading multiple product teams, am a SCRUM-certified Product Owner, Master Certified in User Experience from Nielsen Norman Group, and have expertise in creating and delivering delightful user experiences and products accessible to all. I come from a background in product and user experience design.
I love to design and build useful things because a simple, easy-to-use website or application can be a beautiful, engaging experience that brings joy and satisfaction to a user.
Understanding what users want and need helps in creating a website or application they actually want to use, which leads to increased engagement, satisfied users, uncovering and solving new problems proactively, and ultimately, building a culture of independence and success for users.
I also have a passion for building understanding between the business needs and stakeholders, the technical needs and employees, and the customer needs of a product, cultivated over years of product management. Building a great product is essential, but so is being able to get that product to market.
