simpsoka/README.md

Hi! My name is Kathy. Iโ€™m from Alaska, and Iโ€™m a product manager in San Francisco. I believe all great products are a result of effort that starts with a conversation. I've taken products from early prototypes to launch day consistently for the past 10 years. Through my successes (and failures) I've developed a philosophy about the path we take to make products that shine. My process thrives on the delicate dance between data driven design, business goals, and user feedback. I've worked with a lot of great people through the years. Now I work at Google where I'm building AI powered DevEx with the Labs team. Say hi ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ˜Ž.

    - Seek out failure, it teaches us to think like a scientist. If you start with a hypothesis, then try to prove yourself wrong, youโ€™re bound to make much better decisions. You have to be willing to fail, and that in itself is going to help you build confidence and be more convicted about what your strategy is in the end.

    - There are hundreds of methods for building products and running teams. As a quality PM, it's important to have an open mind about all of it, but finding your own process and philosophy can be grounding. It helps you find your pillars so that you don't smash into things while you're building. Remember, however, that you can always find a budget for remodeling. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    - The beauty of a good process is when it just becomes how you do your work. When you forget you're following a process at all is when you know the process is working for you, your team, your company, and your customers.

    There's a lot of recommended reading for product managers out there. Some of it is incredibly useful, and some of it is a waste of time. Business books don't really get me excited, but there are a few books, articles, newsletters, and podcasts authored by folks I look up to in the industry that I find myself coming back to often. When you're reading about product management, it's important to take everything with a grain of salt. The industry changes rapidly, and so does the discipline. If you learn something you want to try out from one of these books, go for it! But be careful not to whiplash yourself or your team.

    I find new books and articles all the time, so I'm going to start dropping them here. Hope they help and inspire some other Product folks!
