Recently I came across this excellent article about “How to hire a product manager”. It is obviously written from hiring perspective but I think it is an excellent read for getting hired as a product manager. I really liked what Ken says about being expendable. He puts it very bluntly but it is indeed very true. In fact it is the reason and root cause for so much confusion regarding the role of product management. Because as Ken says, in absence of product managers, someone else always tries to fill that void.
