Marty Cagen’s Bad Product Leadership Habits

By | April 27, 2010

I loved this blog post by Marty Cagen.  It’s all the things that bad leaders can do to mess up a product.  However, I read it differently than Marty wrote it.  In other words, he wrote the things a CEO or Executive do that mess up the product manager.  Instead, I read it as the things a bad product manager can do to mess up the user experience designer.

At Intuit, for example, the marketing managers of a website like Quicken.com (equivalent, but separate from the product manager for the product Quicken) would be in usability studies and constantly overreact to each person that was interviewed.

Either way, a wonderful collection.  Reading it made me feel much better through catharsis.  Thanks Marty.
