9 things I wish I knew about Product
Management before I started
By Lindsay Hunt
There is no “I” in Product Management
PMs need
strong views
on what is
right balanced
with being
open to new
ideas
PMs need to be ready to defend their views
Sometimes
you need to
cut corners to
ship
The loudest customers are not always right

Sometimes
you need to
cut corners to
ship
Sometimes
you need to
PMs need to read between
cut corners to
ship the lines to understand
customers’ unmet needs
PMs need
MacGyver-like
skills
PMs are the
devil’s advocate
PM encompasses many things...

...but comes down to
articulating and executing
the future of the product
