Wonderful article from Marty Cagan illustrating how good product teams and cultures deliver great products.
One of my favorite quotes from the article:
The Product Manager needs to ensure a business outcome, not just ensure a product gets defined. This requires a good understanding of the many inter-related parts and constraints of the business – financial, marketing, sales, legal, partnership, service, the customer environment, the technical capabilities, the user’s experience, and figure out a solution that works for the customers as well as the business.
Also great to get hear the back story of some great products like Word, Netflix, and iTunes.
