Occupied Neurons, April 2016

So many Product Managers are making it up as they go along – generating whatever kinds of artifacts will get them past the next checkpoint and keep all the spinning plates from veering off into ether. This is the first time in a long time I’ve seen someone propose some viable, useable and not totally generic tools for capturing their PM thinking. Well worth a look.

The “BUT” model for Product Management is a hot topic, and there’s a number of folks taking a kick at deciphering it in their context. I’ve got a spin on it that I’ll write about soon, but this is a great take on the model too.

Captures all my feelings about the complaint from Designers (and Security reviewers, and all others in the “product quality” disciplines) that they get left out of discussions they *should* be part of. My own rant on the subject doesn’t do this subject justice, but I’m convinced that we *earn* our right to a seat by helping steer, working through the messy quagmire that is real software delivery (not just throwing pixel-perfect portfolio fodder over the wall).

An unconference to expand awareness of a movement among leading thinkers on how to organize work in the 21st century. Looks fascinating – unconference format is dense and high-learning, the subject is still pretty fresh and new (despite the myriad of books building up to this over the last decade), and the energy in the Portland community is bursting.
