New Product Management job? These are your first tasks

When you have a new product management job, what are your tasks in your first couple of weeks? Study the product, architecture, speak to developer, sales and support, have a look at the roadmap…

The guys at HipChat add a task that they consider even more important: Speak to users. They say: ”

Your job as a PM is to find the right problems – then work with your team to solve them.” So to understand the problems, speaking to users is a better way than studying the product’s architecture.
