Product Management Advice from Adrian Jank

TBPP2013_alt-abrv-114

Over the coming weeks I will be sharing segments of a Q&A session I had with Adrian Jank  — and shedding some light onto just exactly what makes Adrian truly The Best Product Person of 2013.

What makes The Best Product Person person of 2013 tick?

Advice…

> What is the best career advice you received as you entered product management?

It was during a pragmatic marketing training session, and it’s one of their advice[1]staples “Your opinion, while nice, doesn’t mean shit”. 

> What is the hardest lesson you learned as a product manager?

Tough decision! I once took a role at a company where I quickly learned I was not passionate about the problem I was solving. It made paying attention to all the details more difficult to do because the passion wasn’t there. The job didn’t work out and despite a love and passion for product management I thought I might not be cut out for it. I had to stop and really evaluate what types of problems I want to solve. I eventually figured it out, but it was a hard lesson to learn.
