Jane Kim, senior program manager on the Internet Explorer team, talks about how the IE team really cares and connects with the community in this episode of WM_IN. A Northwestern grad and seven year Microsoft vet, Jane discusses how the IE team has their
own voice via the team blog
and how they are striving hard to engage with their customers.
As a PM on the team, Jane helps create new feature sets based on customer research and she works with the team to understand the scenarios in which customers will be utilizing those features. Listen to Jane as she tells the story of how she went about pitching
one of the new IE8 features, WebSlices, to her management. (WebSlices enable users to subscribe to specially marked content on a Web page. When the content changes, the user receives a notification on the Favorites Bar.) Ritzy and Carmine meet yet another
woman who was good in math as a youngster in school (Perhaps this is a pattern, people?), and they enjoyed hearing Jane talk about why she became a PM instead of a developer (Debugging is for the birds!).
