Product Voices podcast
People who work in product management are on a constant learning journey. Markets are dynamic. Customer needs are transient. Technologies evolve. The ways in which we work changes. We must learn and adapt along the way. Product Voices is a forum to share practical, real-world stories about how to learn and grow in important areas in product management. Learn from the best voices in product management.
Relationships in product management are bedrock to success. Some product managers find it easy to build relationships with peers but have a difficult time bridging these important connections with senior leaders. It may be an intimidation factor, or just simply not around them as much. But relationships with these folks are so important. And so product managers really must find ways to foster real connections with the leaders in the organization who have an impact on their products.
On this episode, Paul Ortchanian, founder and CEO of Bain Public, a product leadership firm, joins to speak about how product managers can best bridge that gap between themselves - and the product team - and senior leadership. He shares tips and resources on ways PMs can get out of their comfort zone and build real rapport with important leaders around the organization.
"Yeah, you know... you don't want the leadership team to get together and discuss a roadmap issue without you in the room. Right. It's important for them to say, wait, wait, wait, the product manager is not here. Let's bring them into the room and have this conversation. That's the behavior you want. "
