Download to read offline

Jordan discussed the transition from Consulting into Product Management. He walked through the key consulting skills that transfer across and those that don't, as well as unexpected areas that will require a steep learning curve. Based on his experience and lessons learned, Jordan provided insights on how to make this transition as frictionless as possible.


3-5 Main Points / Key Takeaways:
Some consulting skills are important and transferable: analytics, logical presentation of information, communication/presentations
Many consulting norms and behaviors must be thrown out the window: politics, powerpoints, attitude
There will be a learning curve both in culture and in how to spend your time
