Its a typical hot, dry Christmas weekend in Sydney, Australia. What better time to write a blog post about product management? 🙂 This topic has been bugging me for a while. So thought I’d write this to you whilst in my too cold air-conditioned living room.
A common question I get asked is how do I update people in my organisation on a product I’m working on. I’ve been asked 3 times in the past 3 weeks, so obviously there’s something here that others want to know. I get asked by:
* Founders / CXO’s wanting to know how to get their teams to report to them
* Product managers on how to report up to management or other stakeholders in their org.
I’ll discuss why we provide updates, principles, cadence and a template that you can use. This is a format I’ve been using in the the past 5 months for my team at Atlassian. I would like to detail how I do it and hopefully it can provide you some insights that can help you!
