Book Sips #51 — ‘Strong Product People’ by Petra Wille

The first social PM library is live now 🚀 Join here.

Knowing Petra for a while now gave me the chance to read an early version of her new book “Strong Product People” and I loved it. It’s mainly written for managers of other product managers but it’s super valuable for everyone working in Product Management since it has a lot of tangible advice on how to grow professionally. She writes about what makes a product manager a great one and what it takes to get there. It’s a book that you probably pick up a couple of times during your career.

A sip:

‘A product organization only becomes better when each of its members is constantly working on themselves and learning new things.’
