About this blog

How To Be A Good Product Manager is a blog that provides resources and tips on good product management practices. While it focuses more on managing technical and online products, most of the concepts are appropriate for broader product management purposes.

This site is put together by me, Jeff Lash. I currently work as the Vice President and Group Director for the Go-to-Market Group at SiriusDecisions, which includes the Product Management and Portfolio Marketing research and advisory services.

The views and opinions expressed on this site are strictly mine and are not to be representative of my current employer or any of my past employers.

In most cases, I came up with ideas for the postings based on a “good” product management experience, and then I tried to think of the exact opposite approach that would be a “bad” thing to do. Other times they are based on examples, case studies, or others’ experiences. “Bad” examples should not be interpreted to be based on product managers I have worked with in the past or with whom I am currently working. (Hopefully, though, they are not representative of product managers I will work with in the future!)

From 2008-2012, I also ran Ask A Good Product Manager, which provided real answers to your real product management questions.
