How Product Management Varies in Different Regions

On August 15th and 16th, Brandon Luong hosted a Twitter chat event on how product management varies across different regions and cities. Since I work in Salt Lake City, Brandon works in New York City, and many of the folks discussing product management (like mutual friend Alicia Dixon) live elsewhere, we decided to write some questions about how our locales differed. We had about 15 product management professionals offer their thoughts on the use of product management in their region.

Check out the summary over on Medium, where the entire chat series is also accessible.

Does a Phase 1/Phase 2 Approach Ever Actually Work?

Alicia Dixon and I interviewed 7 of our favorite product management colleagues on best practices with a phase 1/phase 2 approach. By that, we mean a scenario where a product has features A, B, and C in 2017 and adds features D, E, and F in 2018. How do you avoid getting in over your head? How do you convey this plan in a roadmap?

A special thank you to Nandini Jammi, who helped make the post stylish and clear.
