Back in 2016, I was working with the product organization of a larger tech company. They asked me to help every product manager on the team “understand the role of the product manager better,” and to help the product managers understand what “better” would actually look like.
This was not an easy challenge and, although I had a certain take on what product managers should be responsible for, I lacked a clear framework—an assessment that I could have discussed with the individual product manager in one of our coaching sessions. I decided it was time to create that framework and this is how I came up with The PMwheel.
In this post, you will learn:
- What the PMWheel is and how it can help you
- How to measure product management activities with the PMwheel
- How to use the PMwheel as a tool for self-assessment
- How to use the PMwheel as a manager
