  7. 7. PRODUCT MANAGEMENT User Research and Business Case and Build It and Release Release and The Idea Wireframes Scope Document Plan Version 2.0 Product Management Product Management is about multi-disciplinary mastery and laser focus. The job involves making sure everyone is communicating, pointing in the same direction and doing the boring work that no-one else wants to do As a Product Manager I’m responsible for what the product should do; other roles are responsible for how the product does that. As a Product Manager, data tells you what is happening, people tell you why. Without both, my understanding is incomplete. If I am doing my job well, I can justify decisions, explain my rationale, be transparent. I’m comfortable with the idea of “good enough” and I’m OK with decisions that may not be ideal for the user but make optimal use of limited resources.7 . Gareth Murran – A presentation about me
