The Art of Product Management: Lessons from a Silicon Valley Innovator collects the most popular of Rich Mironov’sProduct Bytes columns from 2002-2008 with forewords by Prof Henry Chesbrough and David Strom.
“The Art of Product Management: Lessons from a Silicon Valley Innovator” is organized into five sections covering start-ups (“Falling in Love”), organizations, Agile and SaaS (“the Almost New-New Things”), getting into customers’ heads, and pricing (“what should things cost?”). It covers many of the meta-issues about product management: “how to think” about PM rather than “how to” do individual PM tasks and projects. I’m hoping that readers will recognize themselves and their daily process struggles in many of these pieces.
With so many readers responding to Product Bytes over the last seven years, assembling this into a book has been a labor of love. Feel free to post comments and reviews here or on Amazon. The Kindle version of this book is also now out.
