Five Lessons for a Small Team Product Manager
Dan Pitrowiski

“I’ve tried to be the guy implementing sprints for the first time. Or trying to get Github-issues/Jira/Trello/Asana going early. Or getting everyone in a room to talk about personas/company-mission-statement/user stories.

Truth is, you’re over managing. Like your mother trying to get a hat, gloves and a winter coat on you because she saw a snowflake that morning. Your solution needs to be proportional to the problem.”

Can totally relate to this. A bit guilty of this even though I know better. As non-coder in a startup it’s easy to get carried away with process and “work work” instead of focusing on getting things done.
