it’s been a few weeks since I wrote the last Weekend Reading. Just too much going on.
We have done a few Product Management-related projects recently. As Product Management is still somewhat less understood in Europe (some of our definitions here) – I have been asked a couple of times about sources for product management insight.
So – ta-daaa – here’s my brand new and hand-curated product management blog list.
Enjoy the interesting materials, and have a great weekend!
One of my favorite places for insights from multiple sources (writers include Product Dave, Scott Middleton, Kyle Evans, …): Product Coalition. Check this out: The complete checklist to truly understand your customer
