I was honored to join Cindy Solomon’s Product Management Talk podcast series on April 16th. Co-hosted by Adrienne Tan and Nick Coster, we had a lively conversation about Galvanizing The Product Management Career Path.
I’m back from a week of product management workshops and seminars in Sweden, including a Product Leadership event hosted by Tolpagorni’s Magnus Billgren. In a half-dozen discussions with the heads of product management groups, I was struck by how familiar their concerns are. We could have been in Sunnyvale rather than in Stockholm. Topics that came up repeatedly: What metrics do we use for evaluating product managers, and how can we tell if they are doing a good job? Are there PM KPIs*? Our agile development teams tell us that roadmaps are no longer needed, but our customers and sales teams still demand firm commitments.
