Most of these documents are written by the general manager, product director or senior product manager.
As product managers, we need to have email list more sense of owner/ownership, know the history, current situation and expected future of the company and products, so that we have enough sense of purpose and overall vision to push the team forward.
In such documents, what we can expect to find is their analysis of the industry and products. Include a description of history and status quo, experience gained from product iterations in the market, key decisions based on experience and judgment, and views on the future.
If the document is of high quality, it can be used as the "Product Bible" and "Sunflower Collection", pay attention to the collection, and read it frequently.
2. Product Roadmap/Team OKR
These documents are the core source of the team's sense of purpose. They let us know what the whole team wants to achieve in the next quarter or two, and what each small team needs to accomplish to achieve the goal together.
3. Market research report
If the students in the market or product department have done this type of document, it is recommended to study it well, so as to have an understanding of the industry status, scale, main competitors, development strategies, investment and financing situation and business model to which the product belongs.
If not, you can find time to do it. Market analysis is a higher-dimensional perspective than products, and it is also a way to know the ceiling of product development.
On a good side, the dots and lines have better room for development.
4. Product research plan/design plan
Understand the background and value of the business, focus on why it is done, what judgments are based on, and know what OKRs or goals these solutions serve, without digging too deep into the logical details of how to do it.
Others like competitive product analysis reports, product manuals, and even company announcements can be viewed, keeping an empty cup mentality.
