Help your team (and company) ship the right product to your users
A Product Manager’s Job

This is all great, but I would flip the script:

The job of a product manager is to help users solve a problem.

Your team and company should be shipping the right product to help users meet their own goals.

If you’re not putting users first (and they may not even be your users yet), you run the risk of shipping your own goals, your team’s product roadmap, your company’s strategy, or in some worst case scenarios, your company’s org chart without enough emphasis on shipping something people might actually want or need.
