Product Management

Whether you have a stable of Product Managers and need a fresh set of eyes or you never had product people and are wondering what the fuss is all about - I'd like to hear about it.

Here is a blatantly stolen list of core Product Managment competencies.

  • Conduct effective customer/user interviews
  • Build revenue, pricing, and adoption models; micro/macroeconomics
  • Experiment design and analysis; statistics
  • Effective meeting design and facilitation
  • Mapping and understanding complex competitive, partner, and customer ecosystems; complexity and systems thinking; domain research
  • Basic data modeling, JSON, XML, working knowledge of relational and non-relational databases; SQL, REST APIs, processing data using Python, etc.
  • Experience with various analytics tools and business intelligence tools: know what you’re looking for, and where to find it
  • Broad understanding of usability, usability testing, and usability heuristics; the ability to communicate to the user experience team using a common language
  • Awareness of cognitive biases and how they impact decision making
  • Communication skills: listening, verbal, writing, and visual communication
  • Effective note-taking
  • Time-management

I'd like to add Sales, Inspiration, Team Building, Encouragement and a ton more. It just gets crazy. I'll boil it down.

I can help you take something from a glimmer in your eye all the way to a shiny new product with a bow on top. Then I'll make sure we listen to your customers and the market. Then we'll continue to improve this thing to exceed customer expectations and keep our competition at bay. All the while ensuring that we are in lock step with the bigger picture.
