    Saying “no” is a big part of parenting and a big part of product management. We can’t do everything, whether that is buying every stuffed animal or building every feature request. But we can do more than simply say “no”.

    The End of Product Management at Airbnb

    The End of Product Management at Airbnb

    Airbnb is done with product management? Maybe, but not so fast. In this episode we explore what they did and why it very much depends on what a company wants.
    Product management is always different at different companies, and often fills the void of whatever is needed. Sometimes that leans more toward discovery and user experience. Sometimes it leans toward more technical. And sometimes it leans more toward business outcomes and general management. None of these are wrong, and the role always encompasses parts of all of it.

    Lessons in Thinking Long Term: Understanding Consequences of Short-Term Focus

    Lessons in Thinking Long Term: Understanding Consequences of Short-Term Focus

    This week we explore short-term and long-term thinking with an example from Covid-19.
    We’d have been much better served during the pandemic if the FDA hadn’t relaxed its rules for so long or had thought about the long-term consequences of their hand sanitizer policy. And we’d be better off as product teams and organizations if we thought more about the long term while balancing our short-term needs.
