About Me

HELLO,
I’M
LUIS
JURADO

PRODUCT MANAGER & AGILE COACH

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

My superpower is my tenacity and my personal mantra is β€˜never leave anything to chance’.

As a seasoned Product Manager, I’ve dedicated over a decade to mastering the intricacies of product management, coaching, and agile methodologies. My journey has been marked by a relentless pursuit of challenging the conventional, always questioning the status quo, and fostering an environment that celebrates non-conformity. I firmly believe that the most impactful products are born out of diverse, cross-functional teams that are not only empowered but also deeply passionate about the solutions they bring to life.

Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to witness the transformative power of products that truly resonate with their audience. This experience has only deepened my conviction in the importance of building and nurturing products that people genuinely love and connect with.

My passion extends beyond just building great products. I’ve discovered a profound joy in mentoring and coaching both Product Managers and Product Designers. It’s incredibly rewarding to guide these talented individuals, helping them navigate the complexities of their roles, and ultimately, setting them on a path to achieve remarkable success in their careers.

In addition to my professional endeavors, I’m proud to be the author of two critically acclaimed books: “The AI-Powered Product Manager: Combining Strategy and Technology” and “From Zero to Offer – The AI & ML Product Manager Interview Playbook.” Both of these titles are available on Amazon and at major retailers worldwide. These books encapsulate my insights and experiences, offering readers a comprehensive guide to navigating the ever-evolving landscape of AI and ML in product management.
