After completing General Assembly’s Product Management course in Jan 2017, I did a retrospective of the lessons and created a sequence of tasks that would help practice what I just learned in any future project.
Keep track of where you are, as a Product Manager, in your current project
Download or print a checklist for your next team meeting
For beginners, learn the different phases of Product Management with a supporting article
Up until that point, product management had not been defined in phases. When finishing the class, it was unclear how to continue practicing it as a methodology. I was aware of the UX Project Checklist and it was clear that something like that for Product Management would help a lot of people.
The information for each phase and task was arranged in a way that would go from the overall phase into the micro tasks to complete the project:
Phases: Overall category grouping tasks that would have a deliverable to allow the team move to the next phase
Task: Task that would produce learnings to move forward in a giving phase.
Task description: Why that task is important for the given phase.
