Tying Strategy to Your Product Roadmap

Pragmatic Marketing

By Jim Semick. We’ve all heard about “strategic” product roadmaps. But what exactly does that mean in practice? A roadmap is a plan for your strategy that maps out the direction of your product. It provides context for your stakeholders and communicates the why behind what you’re building. Ideally, it’s a high-level visual summary that helps product managers get everyone on the same page.

When to Price

Pragmatic Marketing

Most companies only set prices after they have developed a product. That is certainly a critical time and it is the most obvious. They have to finalize the price at that moment. However, pricing should be done at many steps during the product development process and throughout the life of the product. Before a company builds a product, hopefully they have a business plan.

Selling Vs. Learning

Mironov Consulting

I talk with product managers all the time, and always ask whether they are talking directly with end users and target customers. The most frequent response from enterprise product managers is “Of course! I’m on sales calls two or three times a week.” . That’s great, and helps push the current-quarter revenue needle, but is IMHO a terrible way to learn about general customer needs and broader market trends.

Finding Flow in Your Product Management Career

Mind the Product

A few years ago, I wrote a couple of blog posts about working as a consultant in product management. At that time in London – we’re talking 2011/2012 – it was, dare I say, a bold step to leave a full-time, good product position to go freelance. I’m happy to say that over the past few years, I’ve never once regretted making that move. Five years on, I’m still independent and have had a chance to work on some amazing projects that have given me the opportunity to learn so much and ext

UX For Everything: Marketing For What?

I Wonder The Value

There are more opportunities to hear about UX (User Experience) today. What I like the most about UX is it opens my eyes to the fact that everything can be a design above our thought. In other words, everything has an effect on any people even if it’s not consciously designed. Going back to marketing thing, we see a lot of promotions in any places. Meaning, promotion speaks aloud.

The Future of Work

The Product Bistro

Datestamp: 11/8/2016. As I write this, the US elections are underway, and one thing that stands out is that the concept of “work” in this country, as well as in the world is changing drastically. Beyond the rhetoric around manufacturing vs. outsourcing, clearly the concept of work and workplace are in flux. The world of my parents, really pre-baby-boomers (I guess that makes them part of “The Greatest Generation”), was simple.

How to fix Runaway Project Timelines

Mind the Product

We’ve all been there: two months into a two-week project and the end still isn’t anywhere in sight. Sometimes a good project goes bad, you learn your lesson, and move on. But sometimes the issue is deeper than that, and it’s not a one-off fluke, but an institutional issue that keeps repeating itself. It’s so frustrating to see teams at other companies pull off seemingly unbelievable feats where nothing goes wrong in magical two-week sprints.
