Why Product Managers Wear Sneakers, and Why I'm... →
I was offered a job recently at a high-growth personal financial services internet company as a product manager. Generally I was really excited about the potential, but something in the back of my mind was telling me that this 800+ head company already had the basics figured out, and to Steve’s 2nd point, were merely re-executing an existing business model in new markets.

It’ll be easy to point out flaws in someone else’s execution. I wish I could do some from a qualified position of having actually executed a product well, but I can’t.
