Simple question :
What’s one thing you know now that you wish you had known when you became a Product Manager?
Think of it as advice you’d like to pass down to those new to or thinking about entering the field.
I wish I had really understood the value of ruthless prioritization. By that I mean prioritizing all the things that were (seemingly) expected of me, and being able to clearly define what was most important and focus on those.
I remember being completely overwhelmed in my first Product Management position by trying to do what I thought was expected of me by all the other teams.
It was a huge learning curve, and this was in a company that in hindsight, probably had one of the best grasps of Product Management of any company I’ve worked in.
