Product management tool choice guide


Over the last few months, I got to try and review many product management tools. Some of those tools I used extensively before or actively using now. The right tool can supercharge your PM team performance and make the whole process of creating products so much easier. In this post, I'd like to offer my help in selecting the most-suited tool for your team. 

How to select the right tool for your team?

Selecting the right tool for powering PM operations is tricky. Yes, you can start a bunch of trials or book demos but that will only give you a slight impression of what the tool can do for your team. To see the full power of a PM tool you need to invest quite a lot of effort and time. Both are in short supply for most product teams out there so the selection process usually is chaotic and people often end up with tools that are not the best fit for their needs. Experienced product ops will help you save time and money in choosing the best-suited tool for your team. 

What do you need to consider choosing the PM tool? 

So many things you need to take into account when selecting a PM tool. The most important aspects are: 
  • The size of your team now and its projected growth
  • Your PMs seniority and previous experience
  • The stage of your company/product (startups need different tools than large corporations) 
  • Other tools you use (the right PM tool will need to work nicely with what your engineers and designers use)
  • Your budget and the level of support you would need from the vendor

Powerful technology wasted with a wrong implementation

Travelling as a product manager is always fun. You are trying so many products that any trip becomes a market research exercise. Especially useful is to travel to different continents to see and try local products. That what happened to me when I landed in Tokyo.

Product Vision: an elevator pitch for your product

On this blog, I write a lot about making data-driven decisions . But what if you just starting to think about your product? You have a vague idea and nothing more. No point to go for prototyping or even talking to customers as you don't know yet who to talk to and what to talk about. In such situation - start from creating a product vision.
