In today’s lightning-fast technology world, good product management is critical to maintaining a competitive advantage. Yet, managing human beings and navigating complex product roadmaps is no easy task, and it’s rare to find a product leader who can steward a digital product from concept to launch without a couple of major hiccups. Why do some product leaders succeed while others don’t?

This insightful book presents interviews with nearly 100 leading product managers from all over the world. Authors Richard Banfield, Martin Eriksson, and Nate Walkingshaw draw on decades of experience in product design and development to capture the approaches, styles, insights, and techniques of successful product managers. If you want to understand what drives good product leaders, this book is an irreplaceable resource.

In three parts, Product Leadership helps you explore:

  • Themes and patterns of successful teams and their leaders, and ways to attain those characteristics
  • Best approaches for guiding your product team through the startup, emerging, and enterprise stages of a company’s evolution
  • Strategies and tactics for working with customers, agencies, partners, and external stakeholders

    Comments about oreilly Product Leadership:

    Glad to see all the chapters are finally out. I've been reading the previews as they've been released. I just finished the book and have to say this should be required reading for anyone in product. I stumbled into the product world from design, and this covers the stuff that no one really teaches you like managing people (people you manage and even how to manage up), how to grow a team, and how to tweak processes to get more from your team.

    It was cool to get an inside view on how leaders from companies like Adobe, Uber, Autodesk, and Zipcar work to build great products. Particularly the sections on setting and measuring metrics, and how to be a better communicator have been my areas of focus so far. Looking forward to getting a physical copy soon.
