This is Not Your Product Manager. This is Your Product Squad.
We’ve all seen this Venn diagram for product management, and yet, I’d argue it’s got it all wrong. Sure, product management encompasses a wide breadth of skills. Yes, product managers are expected to be literate or proficient in a number of areas in order to be successful in the role. But YOU are not the convergence of these areas outlined in the diagram (UX, Tech and Business), you’re the facilitator of them. So this diagram isn’t you, it’s your product squad; the people who collaborate, validate, and de-risk technology solutions for the business.
