The Ladder of Evidence: Get More Value From Your Customer Interviews and Product Experiments

Product Talk

One of the best signs of an effective product team is a regular cadence of customer interviews and product experiments. But it’s not enough to simply check the box on these activities; we need to make sure that we do them effectively. Without a strong background in research methods, it’s hard to know how you are doing. I’ve developed a simple framework to help teams evaluate the effectiveness of their methods. It’s called the Ladder of Evidence and I explain it in the video below.

People Don’t Buy Capabilities, They Buy Knowledge

The Secret PM Handbook

This guy might have too much knowledge. Knowledge is power. Most of our tools and applications deliver capabilities, but users and buyers are always hoping that what they’re buying is knowledge. Knowledge of how to do the job. How to do the job faster, or with fewer errors, or with better outcomes. If we don’t put the knowledge in, the our users have to figure it all out themselves. They have to become experts in our tools when they really just want to be experts in their job.

The Secret Product Management Framework

One of the most challenging questions about product management has been – in my experience – “What is Product Management?”. In this post, I share a simple model or framework to answer this question. I talk about this model with lots of people, but I’ve never explicitly written it down in a post. I’ve found the model to be very powerful in my career, and I hope it’s helpful to you. And if you read all the way to the bottom, you’ll find a nice bonus!).

How To Say “No” To A Feature Request

The Secret PM Handbook

No (picture credit at the bottom). Sometimes No Is The Right Answer. Can you talk to me about a time when you had to say no to a customer? Why did you have to say no? How did you handle it? Customers often make feature requests that seem obvious on the surface, but which in fact are misguided or a bad idea. My goal is to be able to tell them that we won’t implement that feature, and have them thank me for that answer. I do that by leading them to make the decision themselves.
