Open Product Management


A curated list of product management advice from frameworks, interviews, experts, resources, books, products, career preps, and much more. The list is divided into cores such as product management, resources, interviews, case Studies, sample products/projects, communities, open source projects, free and paid services. There is no pre-established order of items in each category, the order is for contribution. If you want to contribute, please read the guide. Feel free to add products or links to help other product managers.

This list was created for all product managers whether beginner or advanced to learn from the best people and communities. If you are a technical person looking to get into the role of a Product Manager, this advice below will help you along your path. This guide is by all means not the end all to your learning as the best learning is achieved through practice.

Don't forget to share with others, and if you are looking for new product managment mentors or other guidance I suggest visiting for a list of coaches (free or paid) to help you get started on your journey. If you'd like a 1:1 session with myself (Nick Ivanecky), I'd be happy to share my PM knowledge as well.

Notable contributions to the list are featured in section, Special Thanks.
