Five Product Management books you need to read

  1. 1. Inspired: Tons of useful advice and a good overview of the fundamentals – from an industry veteran. A good side benefit – This is useful for management to understand how a software product organizations should work and what a product management role is (or more importantly – is not) and focus on closing any gaps. Some of the content may be a bit dated now but you can always follow Marty Cagan’s current articles at svproduct.com More techie musings at - Buzzbyte.ca
  2. 2. Defensive Design for the Web: How to Improve Error Messages, Help, Forms, and Other Crisis Points Now this is your day to day guide of “stupid things not to do in your web app”. Amazing book, really breaks down situations that your users –will- encounter and how to lift them out of the trouble when things go wrong. This is from 2004 – but even though it is over 8 years old it feels like this should be on every product manager and Ux designers’ desk. 37signals is the team that created basecamp, so they know a thing or two about web application design.

  3. 3. Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability The classic, original book about how to do simple, good design. When I first read the book I was mentally hard to accept some of the statements (focus groups don’t work well?) . After this book, I built my own usability lab for my own website projects. This is an old book – first published in the year 2000, but its amazing how much of the fundamentals still apply. More techie musings at - Buzzbyte.ca
  4. 4. Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability Problems 9 years after the classic, this book should also be required reading for anyone in a product team. Goes into more detail about how to do day-to-day basics and get 80% there, which could be good enough for that lean startup idea you want to do, or are already working on.

  6. 6. Agile Product Management with Scrum: Creating Products That Customers Love This one is not exactly beach reading (Don’t make me think was though) – and I don’t know about the “creating products customers love” part either, since this book is more about the product owner role and how the role fits into an agile process – which is enough for this book to be a great reference on your desk if you are a product owner. I’d have perhaps titled the book to be “The role of a product owner and how to maximize value out of sprints”. More techie musings at - Buzzbyte.ca
