I was walking with my friend Michael last week in the Oakland hills, and he came out with the most hilarious question: What would a normal person do?
Product managers often gripe:
- My boss says I should be more strategic, yet I am assigned only tactical projects
- We say we want to be market driven, but I’m not allowed to call a customer without the sales person on the line
- We ask “why did we lose this account”, but no product managers are allowed to interview the buyer
- They say I’m essential to the company, but I never get a raise, and I never get promoted
Ask yourself: In this situation, what would a normal person do?
Or meme it: WWANPD?
