The Product Management X-Factor: How to be a Rock Star Product Manager

47,720 views

Published on

Product Management is a tough job: we need to be business oriented, tactical, strategic, and technical all at the same time. But some people have cracked the code about how to be more effective product managers than others. What is it about these rock star product managers that separates them from the rest of us?

Over the past 10 years in product management, Paul Young has observed what makes some people successful where others fail, and boiled it down to seven product management "x-factors," that turn good people into great.

Winner of "Best Session" at Rocky Mountain ProductCamp 2010.
