7 Things Product Managers Need to Know When Making Technical Decisions

2019-03-16 ken mazaikapresentations

I had a great time presenting to MBA students from Berkley Haas School of Business learning about Product Management on Technical Product Design. They already had an understanding of product management and it was great to be able to get right into some of the things I’ve found most impactful.

Take aways from the talk included:

  • Understand & explain why
  • Be humble and ask questions
  • Technical Risks & Unknowns
  • Communication Level with Engineers and Senior Engingeers
  • Alignment, momentum & trust
  • Resourcefulness > Resources
  • Know what to let slip through the cracks
