10 Pictures That Will Shape Your View Of Product Management


We took some time to look at which product management illustrations  — our clients, followers and supporters  — found the most interesting. Through the startup-side deployments of our SOAP™ framework, we really enjoy bringing you constructive and a typical product management research, practical work advice, and analysis. It is very rewarding to think about the content that fits into product managers lives and makes their work better. Here are some illustrations that are most useful and important today.

But first, what is SOAP™?
SOAP™ is a methodology we created for product planning and roadmap prioritization based on principles of Product Strategy, Lean Startup, User-centered design, Data Science and more. It breaks product innovation in 3 steps -- Product Mission, Product Blueprint and Roadmap Pillars. Our 12-week process covers the tactics, strategies and mindsets that underpin these 3 steps thinking. It's an approach designed to help organizations create knowledge, and build product strategies. When employed, it will help create new value, respect stakeholder opinion while getting buy-in, and optimize product delivery through iterative releases while validating and eliminating waste.
