The journey to product mastery – for product managers
I expect you, as a product person, love shaping the direction of a product, especially a product that provides you value. That is why I’m inviting you to be a founding member of a brand new product I’m launching—the Product Mastery Now Community. Too many of us have very little interaction with product professionals—in your own organization and at other companies. We need to be developing our professional network and learning with and from other product managers and leaders. If you neglect your learning, you are jeopardizing your ability to move toward product mastery and not getting better at developing products customers love. Instead, become a founding member of the Community. Not only will you influence its direction while getting value from the community; you’ll join for the lowest price that will ever be offered. Applications to join the Community will close soon. I’d like for you to get the benefits of being a founding member—learn about the community and apply at www.ProductMasteryNow.com/community.
Today we are talking about the journey to product mastery. While everyone’s journey is different, I created a roadmap to cover the major stages. I first created the product mastery roadmap in 2013, and I updated it this year to reflect some changes in my experience and knowledge, as I’ve encountered hundreds if not thousands of product professionals since 2013.
I expect you’ll find it helpful to talk through the four main stages of the roadmap so you can make better use of the resources you have to help you get to the next stage as well as to help those you can mentor and encourage at a previous stage.
