Hello and Welcome to Product Outsiders!
In a world awash with MBAs and fancy suits we are the people standing on the outside, our sleeves rolled up, ready to get some ish done. We’re not product managers in the way you might think, but we’re passionate about solving real problems for real people in ways that actually create real value. So I guess that makes us product managers? Whatever you call us. we’re passionate about building great collaborative teams that make great products together.
We’re doing something a little different in this episode – we have a guest to help us see different disciplines’ perspectives on Product Management and healthy product teams.
Today we had the chance to sit down with one of our favorite Software Engineers, Aaron Roberts to talk through what makes a Good Product Manager from the point of view of Development. All of our hosts have had the opportunity to work with him previously, and it was a joy not only to get to chat with him again but also to dig into what he sees as both the good and the bad when it comes to product management when building products.
