Abstract

What does success mean? For many product managers or product owners, it means:

  • Maximizing features,
  • Increasing velocity,
  • Meeting deadlines,
  • Pleasing stakeholders.

The above reflects the old ways. The more you face that, the quicker you become a backlog manager.

Let’s talk about the challenges of being a product manager and how to move from managing the backlog to driving value. You can expect provoking thoughts, actionable insights, and a bit of unconventional product management.

From Backlog Manager to Product Manager: Questions & Answers

During the Q&A part on moving from Backlog Manager to Product Manager, David answered the following questions, among others:

  • What is a useful mindset for PMs regarding the context they are dealing with? (Creator of Promised Land? vs. Victim of Harsh Reality?) (Denise Fleck)
  • Without estimation, how do we arrive at a quarterly roadmap? How do we map alignment with strategy?
  • Regarding the estimation bit, when you work for a digital agency, you have to give customers an indication of the duration because that will form the basis of the quote. How do you deal with this situation?
