📚 Top 100 Resources for Product Managers

I decided to test an idea:
I asked for pre-orders to validate the demand:
It didn’t work out. Only 2 people bought it for $49:
But out of this came a great resource that I had missed, and from a source I respect a lot:
There is a lot of goodness here to read. Explore and save:

I’m an underdog product manager.
Product management in New Zealand (where I live) is still a relatively immature discipline. I also came into it late via data science and UX. I may be older than others, but I often feel like a rookie.
To become better at my craft, I learn and explore new ideas relentlessly.
Then I share high-quality, tried-and-true ideas that can be used right away.
How I can help you:
If you’re learning about product as a cross-functional leader, I’ve compiled my best actionable finds in prodmgmt.world.
Get some help via prodmgmt.help. People ask about How to prioritise, How to do market research, how to work with engineers, how to go from a service to a product, how to develop a deep coherent product strategy, what books to read and courses to take on product topics & design systems product management.
see you next week.
