Good product management is critical to gaining and maintaining a competitive advantage. My co-authors Nate Walkingshaw (CXO at Pluralsight), Richard Banfield (VP of Design Transformation at InVision), and I interviewed over 100 of the world’s top product leaders to uncover and share their insights into how to launch successful products and build great teams.
Published by O’Reilly in 2017 with a foreword from Ken Norton (Product Partner at Google Ventures), our book has quickly become the defacto guide to product leadership and is a consistent best-seller in the category.
