The roles of a product manager in the new team
A lot of team tasks converge and diverge on the product manager. And it's great when you've worked with that team for a long time.
But what to do when you join a new team? How to behave in a new team?
There are three basic models of interaction between a product manager and a team, which are built on a simple and understandable factor - the experience of a person and a team.
- Supporter. In the wings, he studies and asks a lot, and approves information/tasks/solutions, following the team along the path set by it.
- Partner. With everyone on an equal footing, involved in common work, and following a jointly approved course.
- Leader. Sets the pace for the team, forms a strategy, independently plans and starts team and product processes, and delegates a lot.
On the X axis - the general level of knowledge and skills of the product manager. On Y - the experience of the team with which he works.
The points of their intersection show the most appropriate model of interaction between the product and its team.
