Coming up with ideas is hard. Leading teams through uncharted waters to build and deliver something amazing is even harder. In this talk, Elizabeth shares how she led the team that delivered Webex Hologram from concept through customer beta. In her own words: "When I received sponsorship to prove out a concept and build a prototype of a cutting edge, disruptive technology, I was ecstatic. But when I was given a limited budget and only 4 months to demonstrate the initial proof of concept, I got creative." Join Elizabeth as she retells the early days of Webex Hologram and outlines the 5 key strategies she employed to build an amazing team and empower them to create an innovative new product.
