Towards a Product Management Manifesto (part 1.5)

manifestologoredsmallA comment by Steve Johnson on another blog made me realize that before I start talking about *my* views on the problems in technology product management, I should do a little field research first. Steve quoted the phrase on his coffee mug:

Your opinion, while interesting, is irrelevant.

So, taking that to heart, I’m going to forego my opinion (for now), and collect some “market data” (i.e. your opinions!) about what problems need to be addressed in the technology product management profession.

You can do it in whichever of the following ways suits you best.

  1. Leave a comment on this blog.
  2. Click the following link  and submit your words via the anonymous survey. (click here)

And TELL ALL YOUR PM FRIENDS to do the same. Really, the more input, the better.

I’ll let this percolate for a few days, and when enough input is gathered, I’ll consolidate it and use it in part 2.

  1. While I’m not a product manager (developer by profession) the biggest problem that I experience is making the tradeoff between stablising a product and introducing new features.

  4. Great survey. Concise, but allows for open-ended responses.

  5. Thanks Roger. At this point, I want to make it as easy as possible for people to speak out on issues. The answers we get depend on the questions we ask so I’m trying to minimize barriers.

    Identifying problems is the initial step. Then the hard work comes trying to define and implement solutions.

    Pass the word on to others please. The more input we get the better as the process moves forward.
