Greetings! And thanks for coming by.

My name’s Chris and I love understanding people’s problems and finding creative, profitable ways to make their pains go away.

Product Management Meets Pop Culture is my attempt to give something back to the community that helped shape me as a product management professional.

Why the pop culture?

Because most people “get” pop culture, and most people don’t really understand the role of “Product Manager” … but a good PM can mean the difference between a product achieving its goals or missing the mark.

I’ve developed this site — using movies, comics, and other pop culture ephemera — to illustrate product management concepts in a clear and fun way; provide practical advice on being an effective, respected Product Manager; and hopefully encourage discussion of best practices that we can all benefit from.

Here is the presentation that started it all, designed to explain the Product Manager role to new PM’s and those who interact with PM’s:

Product Manager 101: What Does A Product Manager Actually Do?

It’s a work in progress, and your feedback is most welcome.

Chris
