“You just have to be good at writing product requirements documents and making sure that the product gets built on time….”


Managing a successful product requires much more than that.

Here are 10 traits of a good product manager:

  1. Ability to communicate effectively.
  2. Open-mindedness.
  3. Empathy for users’ needs.
  4. Decision-making ability.
  5. Having a growth mindset — learn-it-all instead of a know-it-all approach.
  6. Master at the execution process.
  7. Use a “can-do” attitude to resolve complex problems.
  8. Attention to the smallest detail.
  9. Take overall responsibility for the entire process.
  10. Collaborate with all team members.
