A day in my life as a product manager
Stakeholder expectations for prioritization and roadmap planning. 😛
How I react when the project being driven finally has a qualified lead in B2B / onboarded consumer in B2C. 😛

When Definition of Done means deployed in Production environment, with no QA and no documentation 😛
How I refresh / recharge every single day. 😛
How to indicate and say ‘No’ to stakeholders for new requirements at the last minute 😛
Being self driven & entrepreneurial. 😛
When I get desperate to move a metric like NPS and begin collecting customer feedback relentlessly! 😛

When I try accepting the story I had written by performing user acceptance testing and doubling up as a manual QA 😛
My toolkit. 😛
When I realized that I am the Jar Jar Binks of my teams 😛
PS – For Star Wars fans only!
When I try to maintain a poker face but end up befuddled / bewildered 😛
When I parachute into a new initiative or stressed asset and am suddenly expected to have all answers 😛

How designers see me despite my best efforts 😛
When I try to align stakeholders to the roadmap 😛
My dreams as a B2C product manager – Metrics like acquisition, conversion, retention shooting up 10X 😛
My dreams as a B2B product manager – Metrics like MRR, sales leads, cash flows, operating margins shooting up 😛
How I motivate engineering teams 😛
Why this series of lightheartedness?
1) One never knows which sub system (internal organ) of the main system (human body) might suddenly decide to run a feature selection / parameter tuning algorithm, delete a couple of parameters and begin to throw out unexpected results in production (disease / disorder / disability).
Life. Is. Short.
And a little humor does not hurt anyone. 🙂
2) I enjoy self deprecating humor.
