Hello 👋
Thanks for signing up. This is the first issue of my fortnightly newsletter. I hope to be a good steward of your time.

Read 📖
Story telling and framing the narrative is one the most important attributes of a product manager.
How do you grow in your career, in the ‘corporate ladder’. This is a great post by Ian McAllister that talks about how you should analyze your skills and the organization’s expectation for the next level in your career. Also great points on how to address this with your manager.
My Post: Beyond Shipping
It took me some years to learn that Product Management doesn’t stop at shipping(value delivery), but the true end goal is value realization by the user. Here I wrote about what that means and how you can ensure the value is realized by the customer.
Watch 📺
In this 25 Min video, Adam Nash (PayPal, LinkedIn, Dropbox) talks about 6 lessons he has learnt in Product Management:
  1. Prioritization
  2. Finding the heat - Understanding user’s emotional needs.
  3. Simple is hard - Einstein’s Razor (make it simple, not simpler).
  4. Obsess about your non-users.
  5. Solve the product problem backwards - It’s not ‘if’ you should build something, it’s ‘When’.
  6. Know your superpower.
