Your product management questions answered

About this site

Ask A Good Product Manager was designed to provide answers to real product management questions. It is an offshoot of How To Be A Good Product Manager, a blog which provides regular tips on good product management practices.

Many readers of How To Be A Good Product Manager send emails asking for advice on product management questions and challenges. Ask A Good Product Manager was created as a way to answer more of these questions and share the answers with other product managers who have the same questions. Ask A Good Product Manager is currently on hiatus, though our 70+ questions with responses are still available online.

Other good product managers were called on regularly to provide their advice and all readers are encouraged to join in the discussion as well. The views and opinions expressed on this site by me, other contributors, and by commenters are those of the authors only and may not be representative of my current or past employers.

More information about product management is available on How To Be A Good Product Manager, including recommended product management resources and a way to get in touch with me.
