I wrote these at the beginning of my journey within product management and these principles guide my decision making on a daily basis. These principles were written from the perspective of doing product management for data products but most could easily be used for other industries.
- Grow. Products not growing faster than the market are becoming less relevant over time.
- We are a subscription product. Customers buy us every second. We survive if they keep choosing us daily.
- Ask yourself: "what am I requiring a user learn? how would they know to find this? when would they look?"
- First, write down the problem.
