Learning Product Management
Later this week, I am flying to Chicago to take a class on Product Management. Now I’ve spent the past several years of my support career dealing with Product Management, so I have a vague idea of what they do. I’ve also thought it might be an interesting way to gain some lateral (and maybe upward) mobility as well a bit later on. I’ve also been given a vague sort of direction from my management at my day job that it might be a good idea to learn some stuff about Product Lifecycle Management. What better way to learn about that than to learn the life of the person who manages that: a Product Manager.
I will be down in Chicago’s Central Business District. If anyone can suggest any decent places to eat or things I should see for the couple of days I am there, I’m all ears.
