Qualities amongst the best product managers
Connor Hayes is a director of product management at Meta. He believes the best tech Product Managers prioritize the following actionable strategies.
Communicate clearly: take the extra time to carefully craft the information you share to save others time when they consume it.
Advance collectively: look at success from your user and company’s perspective; think beyond the scope of your immediate team.
Put people first, process next: start by defining the ideal product solution and then discuss process, ownership, and tooling.
Show the mess: share highlights and discuss problems/risks that can hinder your product’s success. Ideally, show the mess with a plan.
Have fun: great PMs have fun while getting the job done.
