What accomplishment in your product management career has brought you the highest level of satisfaction and joy? Can you narrate why?

Strategic decisions that help our company with direction and focus bring the highest level of satisfaction and joy. And ofcourse shipping Product :)

‍

What aspect of product management did you struggle the most with? How did you overcome it?

Aligning engineering teams to the bigger vision and getting my colleagues to address technical debt was probably the biggest struggle. Demonstrating impact by taking them on customer calls or showing them customer feedback goes a long way in aligning engineering teams

‍

What's one common myth about product management that you find common among aspiring PMs?

You are the mini CEO of the company ;)

‍

What are some common pitfalls that product managers must be aware of?

Not being data driven, not measuring what metrics are moved by the features that are delivered, strategy behind building features is often not aligned to business.

‍

If not product management, what career would you have picked? Are there any complimentary skillsets that you see between being a PM and your alternate choice?

Engineering. Have done engineering for the most part of my career. Whats complimentary is the logical way of thinking and breaking down a problem.

‍

What is something about product management that you wish you knew when you started out?

Project Management responsibilities come free ;)
