From Chaos to Cohesion: Implementing Lightweight Processes

When you’re just getting things started, an anything-goes, Wild West attitude can sometimes be a positive. There’s so much new information coming in daily and so many assumptions that have yet to be validated that people are just winging it to get stuff done.

5 Important Ways Product Managers Can Refocus on Goals in 2020

Unless your product management stack includes a crystal ball, all those goals and resolutions we made way back in January likely didn’t take global pandemics, fluctuating economies, and social unrest into account. Every year is unpredictable, but 2020 has been truly outdoing itself. That said, we’re at the halfway point, so it’s a good time to check...

How can Product Leaders Build Trust with Remote Teams?

We build up trust in others based on our own experiences, or the recommendations of those who already have our confidence. We place more value on our friend’s recommendation of a TV show or a dishwasher brand than an anonymous reviewer on the Internet.

Product Manager to VC: How a Product Background Makes You a Better Investor

From product manager… to a venture capitalist? Let’s state the obvious first: Historically, that has not been the typical career path for a product manager (pm). When they’re recruiting new associates or partners to join their investment team, venture-capital firms don’t look for product professionals. In their own career trajectories, PMs often do...

Why Distributed Product Teams are Here to Stay

There is no going back to “normal” for product teams. The idea of simply translating what we did in the office can’t be matched in our distributed world. At a minimum, I believe we need to start thinking remote-first. While we will eventually head back to our offices, we want to prepare ourselves to do it better next time. Even better is to embrace...

Resilient Leadership During Challenging Times
