The Black Box of Product Management
The article shines light on Pm discipline. In a world where speed is king and the world is changing exponentially, having time to develop consensus before action is often a luxury. Teams need critical decisions made on a daily basis in order to maintain speed, and those decisions have major trade-offs and/or conflicting interests among stakeholders. Driving those decisions is no one else’s job but the product manager’s.
Where Great Product Roadmap Ideas Come From?
The best ways to inspire a new idea includes talking to customers, talking to employees who talk to customers (e.g. sales, customer support, marketing), observing your customers, through data and user research, spending quality time with previous data dives and user research, using the product yourself, thinking in a quiet place, having small discussions with teammates, etc.
