Am I a Good PM? Am I a Bad PM? Evaluating Yourself and Your Team
As Product Managers, we are responsible for delivering outcomes but outcomes such as revenue are dependent on far more than just the product. How then can we know if we’re doing a good job?
As the Senior Director of Product at Hootsuite I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this topic. In an attempt to answer this question and help the Product Managers on my team understand their career and promotion trajectories I developed a ‘Product Management Performance Framework’ which we rolled out at Hootsuite last year (and continue to iterate on).
During this session I’d like to…
1. Share the Product Management Performance framework
2. Discuss the qualities that I believe are necessary to being a successful Product Manager
3. Share our journey towards identifying leading indicators to help us on our performance evaluation quest
Both people managers and individual contributors alike should find value in this session and leave with some immediately implementable ideas. Hope to see you there!
