My journey of three years as a PM in a high-growth, high-pressure corporate environment and without any previous PM knowledge: the three degrees of understanding of the PM role, plus corollary learnings

Context:

  • How did I become a product manager?
  • About my industry and my company.
  • The specific PM profile in my team (e.g. enterprise tooling, not a user-facing product).

High-level content:

  • The hard-skills first: ways of working (e.g. agile development practices) and product development lifecycle.

Learnings from personal experience:

a. All documents in place and documents lifecycle

b. Keeping stakeholders in the loop

c. No tasks beneath or above

  • Own the problem, not the solution

Learnings from personal experience:

a. Writing is thinking

b. Cut through complexity to get to the essence of the problem

c. Storytelling: the pyramid principle

  • The thoughtful leader

Learnings from personal experience:

a. Act as an owner

b. All opinions are heard, but your decision is needed

c. Bringing your team together along the product life cycle
