Don’t Just Settle for being a “Good” Product Manager. Strive for “Greatness”

“Shoot for the moon, and you’ll land among the stars.” This is one of my favorite sayings of all time. In fact, I often model my projects around this concept.


This approach can be applied to all areas of our lives, especially professionally where our goal is to achieve excellence.


Reaching for the stars, or striving to become a great product manager takes years of hard work and dedication. Product expert Rich Mironov is a prime example of someone who took his years of experience and applied his knowledge to both become an excellent PM, and to design programs which help others achieve greatness.


Rich Mironov has been working in software coding since before Macintosh was launched. He has a vast amount of experience working in multiple startups, once even as a CEO, and is the founder of Product Camp, where PM’s learn how to manage a product of excellence.


One way Mironov spreads his wisdom is through talks his gives at his various Product Camp sites. In this invigorating talk a “Great Product Management,” Mironov relays the essential traits and tactics which separate an average product manager from a great one. I found this talk both inspiring and enlightening, as I learned a few new PM principles, and had a great time watching this product guru impart his wisdom.
