Over the years, I’ve enjoyed reading survey results specific to various aspects of Product Management. From how much time we spend in meetings, to what skills are most important and rewarded, to a day in the life of a Product Manager (and there have been many others) … it is always interesting to hear what my peers think and how they go about their jobs.
This morning I was reading another survey findings document focusing on What Tools Are Product Managers Using? If you’ve ever done any home improvement projects, you know first hand it’s all about having the right tools! There are some really good perspectives in the findings, even a few surprising ones … for example, 70% of Product Managers are using new applications within the last year.
Admittedly, I’ve not kept up with all of the latest & greatest out there … but it did make me stop and think about what tools have been central in me being productive in my role? Not from the perspective of a specific product per-se… but more around what “tools” have been essential to my success in the Product Management role.
