Product managers are responsible for guiding the design and overall functionality of software. The relationship between product managers and engineers is complimentary: a PM is viewing the product from a perspective that is closer to the customer, so the PM often has the responsibility of navigating high-level tradeoffs in the functionality of a product.
Suzie Prince is the head of product at ThoughtWorks and she joins the show to discuss how she navigates tradeoffs as a PM. We also explored communication strategies for how PMs can work productively with engineers, and the overall product development process.
