Publisher's Summary

Product management has become a critical connective role for modern organizations, from small technology startups to global corporate enterprises. And yet the day-to-day work of product management remains largely misunderstood. In theory, product management is about building products that people love. The real-world practice of product management is often about difficult conversations, practical compromises, and hard-won incremental gains. 

In this book, author Matt LeMay focuses on the CORE connective skills - communication, organization, research, execution - that can build a successful product management practice across industries, organizations, teams, and toolsets. 

For current and aspiring product managers, this book explores:

  • On-the-ground tactics for facilitating collaboration and communication
  • How to talk to users and work with executives
  • The importance of setting clear and actionable goals
  • Using roadmaps to connect and align your team
  • A values-first approach to implementing Agile practices
  • Common behavioral traps that turn good product managers bad

Clear, realistic, well written and narrated... a must for any aspiring or active PMs

This is a highly rated book already because it’s a really honest and actually helpful book for the increasingly complex work we face as PMs. I specially love how LeMay challenged pretty much everything I assumed about the career itself.

But I will say this: the author says that this is no reference book. I respectfully disagree. There are many instances when he talks about templates and frameworks that are very powerful. I would take note of them.

Also, Its so good that I want to read it again :)
