#0125: Can You Ship It? : When Design and Engineering Isn't Enough by Track Changes published on 2018-07-10T04:32:06Z The Game of Product Management: This week Paul Ford and Rich Ziade record a live podcast episode at our Ship It! meetup. We dive into the blockers that slow us down, the drivers that move us forward and we compete to see who can ship it. We also get a window into Paul’s keynote skills! 4:00— Paul: “[Product Management] is kind of the uber topic of our existence: How do we get these things shipped? We might know how to engineer, we might know how to design, but putting it all together and getting it out into the world is hard as hell.” 9:34 — Paul: “That looks like someone who can ship a process, we need someone who can ship a product.” 10:22 — Rich: “There’s nothing more effective than two or three people in Slack, beating the shit out of a problem. Meetings suck.” 11:25 — Rich: “This is about leadership stepping in and giving you advice because they just read a thing in Fortune.” 11:39 — Rich: “There is an art in responding to a leader and getting them to go away.” 15:18 — Rich: “Paranoia is very, very powerful.” 19:29 — Paul: “Even in success, you’re going to find failure.” A full transcript of this episode is available.
