My name is Paul Young, and this is the inaugural story for Product Beautiful. Product Beautiful is a concept I’ve been running in my mind for the last few years but never unleashed – a blog about high technology Product Management and a place to exchange ideas with others about what works and what doesn’t work in PM. I’ll be in stealth mode for a few weeks to tweak the format. I hope that you join in.
Like all other sites that vie for reader time on the Internet, this site is a Product (service), so it is only fair to break it down first by stating what problems it solves:
Problem 1: Bosses, Peers, Friends, and Family have little to no understanding of what Product Management is, or what it does.
Problem 2: Many Product Managers are confused about their roles, and this confusion leads to a strategic vacuum that is filled with opinion, conjecture, and assumption.
- The website shall include at least one post per week illustrating the strategic role of Product Management to a novice.
- The website shall include at least one post per week illustrating a tactical example of Product Management roles to Product Managers.
- The website shall foster discussion about the roll of Product Management
