Welcome to CTEcreative

My name is C. Tyson Edwards. I am an Atlanta-based product thinker who enjoys long walks, shorter meetings, and integrating my visual design and UX background with Agile best practices to release fantastic products that drive real business results.

A good product thinker is a cross-functional team-player who actively engages with customers, vendors and all functional areas to keep teams aligned with product goals.

I really enjoy developing relationships with other teams and I bring a great attitude and my own personality to every project.

Technical Product Management

In my most recent role, I served as the Technical Product Manager where I assisted the Global Product Manager with the roadmap & UX of 2 complex dental practice systems used daily by nearly 10,000 dental offices in the US and Australia.

My strategy for defining a product vision involves:

  • Specifying user needs and pain-points though UX research
  • Aligning the product vision with the business needs
  • Synthesizing complex ideas into work items to be consumed by other teams
  • Keep a groomed & organized product backlog
  • Facilitate timely releases by boosting team collaboration
  • Make tough decisions backed by data, evidence and good judgment

Communication / Organization

I strive to be an excellent communicator who actively looks to engage and build positive relationships with internal stakeholders, other functional teams as well as external vendors and of course the link to success – customers!

By keeping communication lines open with other teams, I was often able to prevent deadlines slip by facilitating early communication of technical changes to other functional area so that they could align their final deliverables.

  • Jira / Rally / Azure DevOps
