The Heretech is Tom Grant‘s blog for Forrester on technology product management. His August 18th podcast with Rich Mironov covered a range of topics including agile and PM; product innovation and B2B products worth loving; where to look internally for good PM candidate; parenting as metaphor for product management; and dinosaur extinction theories. Tom’s light touch and literary allusions (“Dinosaurs in the Hands of an Angry God”) always make for good listening. Hear this podcast
