Product Management

Why are execs, product managers, marketers, designers and engineers so often NOT on the same page?

I want to forget, at least for now, the obvious need for a clear overarching vision, trust, accountability and a culture of cooperation. Without these, you will not build a great product no matter what, so let’s assume that these are in place. (Wishful thinking, I know, but let’s not go there now.)

Customer is besieged, but still standing unconquered

Given the long history of myriad frameworks and methodologies, it seems like the customer, her goals, pains and motivations are besieged on every front. Everyone is trying to analyze her, everyone is trying to understand her, everyone is trying to learn how to satisfy her.

The product management divide and how product strategists, UX designers, lean startup practitioners…

Now we are familiar with the various product management activities (product strategy, product development, and product marketing). As these activities become specialized and different people (or even distinct teams) take on each function, they align around the same goal of delivering a viable product customers will use and love. Everyone is on the same page when it comes to understanding who exactly the target customer is, what her key goals and pains are, and what solution alternatives are available to her. Nothing can stop them from building a product that will be a runaway success.
