Further notes from session:


  • Individual PM role is about getting product stuff done; Director is about making processes work
  • Narrow funnel: most PMs will probably not get promoted into Director roles
  • One option: diagonal move to manage a line organization (e.g. Tech Support or Field SE or Developer Relations) that may be hungry for management talent
  • Understanding your boss's problems gives you the opportunity to provide solutions to her/his issues as well as yours
  • VP role is about company-wide organizational alignment
