I stumbled across a post about better decision making for product managers. It encourages to pose three questions for each decision with larger (expected) impact:
- Imagine that the option you’re currently leaning toward simply vanished as a feasible alternative. What else could you do?
- Imagine that the alternative you are currently considering will actually turn out to be a terrible decision. Where could you go looking for the proof of that right now?
- Six months from now, what evidence would make you change your mind about the choice you’ve made? What would make you double-down?
Read the explanations in the full post “How to avoid the curse of knowledge“.
Addendum: I have created a resource stash for all things related to Software Product Management!
