Summary - A classic book on Product Management

Marty Cagan’s Inspired will be my first recommendation to anyone who wants to understand what Product Management is all about. He talks about the impact good product managers can make (primarily in tech companies), and how many companies get this role wrong. How it’s important for you as a product manager to be the evangelist of the product for the team. And how to work across the many stakeholders PMs have to worth with. Big takeaways for me 1) Be the expert on the users, business, and market/industry. 2) Evangalize the team forward by sharing key learnings with broader teams. 3) Learn to love problems. Measure success through outcomes instead of feature launches.
