About ‘The Best Product Person’

The Best Product Person (TBPP) is the leading international award honoring excellence in Product Management. Established in 2010, TBPP is awarded annually in association with The Product Guy (http://tpgblog.com) and The Product Group (http://meetup.com/theproductgroup).

TBPP Recognizes 1 person each year, invites them to speak and share their knowledge and experience with the larger product community. The nominations can be submitted by anyone. And, if you are the first to submit the winning nominee, you too will be rewarded  Over the course of the year, the various nominees are interviewed and the finalists narrowed down to: The Best Product Person of the year . The finalists are interviewed and evaluated for excellence in Product along the following lines… Becoming a Product Person, Your Product, Advice to Product People, and Future & Trends.

TBPP is both (1) the way the Product community gets together to recognize excellence amongst our ranks as well as (2) provide, to a large audience, insights into that excellence in a manner we can all learn from and leverage in our own Product journeys.

Training is Product Management

This Is Product ManagementRecently, I had the unique pleasure of being interviewed on the product management podcast, This is Product Management.

As Founder of The Product Group and The Product Mentor I share insights on how product managers can find mentors, how to get new hires up to speed, and how senior product managers can grow into leaders.

I’ve embedded the podcast and excerpted the highlights from the conversation below.

Highlights
(4:58) Why does Jeremy think mentorship is so important to product managers?
(12:10) What can senior product managers and organizations do to help new hires?
(14:20) What are some of the common mistakes Jeremy sees when getting new product managers up to speed?
(19:28) How does Jeremy recommend product managers get better at their jobs? How can product managers find the right resources for themselves?

 

Enjoy!
