Putting the pieces of product management together

What are the rough steps you take when doing a puzzle?

  1. Lay out all of the pieces
  2. Build the border
  3. Identify the easier sections (do these first)
  4. Then do the harder bits
  5. Finish the puzzle (hopefully there are no pieces missing)

What are the rough steps you take when ‘doing’ product management?

Hmm, that’s a bit harder.

However, maybe it doesn’t have to be. What if we used the steps we do for a puzzle as a framework for the steps to take in product management?

In this blog post, I’ll take an easy to understand concept (doing puzzles), and apply it to a more opaque area (product management) to create a useful product management process…
