H2R Product Science

  Experimentation is not about right or wrong. It’s about learning things that you genuinely didn’t know. The secret is to become comfortable with the uncomfortable and to make room for your own sense of  vulnerability. When you’re able to embrace not knowing something, or have experiments come back that disprove your hypotheses, you’re going …

A lot of times product managers take a overly narrow view of prioritization without giving full consideration to the impact of decisions we make. Whether to add another new feature to our backlog – and which one? Is there a new market segment we should explore? Do we need a new vision for our product? …

Product Culture

Before we jump headlong into implementing Lean or Agile. Before we decide that OKRs offer the best chance to set goals and measure results.

Rich Mironov
Product Coach, Writer, Speaker

Radical Product Thinking

Marty Cagan
Silicon Valley Product Group

  The difference between the best product companies and the rest is pretty stark. And you don’t have to wait until the end of the fiscal quarter to figure which is which.
