Thank you to lucidLIFT for underwriting our new Product Management Leadership interview series!

 
Featuring: Danaca Booth, Code42

What does Product Management leadership mean to you?

When I started out in product, I thought it meant having a vision. But after several years, I now think product leadership is about connecting with people and the problems they’re trying to solve, determining if any of those problems are worth solving in terms of your own business goals, and if so, approaching those problems with genuine curiosity.

For me personally as a PO, I feel I’m doing a good job when I can facilitate cross-functional collaboration in a way that yields a better outcome
for our customers than I could ever dream up on my own.

“Here I sit, in a cabin on Lake Superior by the fire, with late-season snow pelting the windows and ominous waves crashing against the rocky shore. Despite the treacherous terrain that surrounds me, I feel at peace with the decision I’ve been weighing.

Product Management Leadership: Tim Adair, SAP

Thank you to lucidLIFT for underwriting our new Product Leadership interview series!

 
Featuring: Tim Adair, SAP

What does Product Management leadership mean to you?

Product Management leaders need to have a complete view of their business in order to effectively prioritize development projects. Achieving the complete view is challenging as one individual, it takes many people and teams to provide input, both internal and external.

The most effective leaders I’ve witnessed set the vision and then did whatever possible to get out of the way. Leadership is serving people and giving them an opportunity to be confident and successful.
