Being a Product Manager requires structured and organized thinking. Frameworks and toolkits are a handy and effective way to approach problems. Product Managers will learn about many and develop their own throughout their product careers.

Main Takeaways:

  • You'll be given ambiguous onboarding and ramp-up time when you start. Use this time to PM yourself.
  • PMs have two objectives: (a) product vision & direction and (b) driving results through cross-discipline, cross-team collaboration. They accomplish these objectives through four functions: (1) communication & influence, (2) learning, (3) design, and (4) execution.
  • Your first goal is to learn as much as possible about the four functions specific to your new product and organization. This will unblock you to succeed at your two objectives when your ramp-up period ends.
  • Sub-goals for the four functions:
    • Communication & Influence: start relationship building before you need to make asks
    • Learning: become an expert on the customer and business
    • Design: learn what your organization values in PMs
    • Execution: learn the processes to deliver results
