Guerrilla Training: Learning the Product

It's an unfortunate characteristic of our economy today that inadequate time is spent on training employees on a product. Usually, companies look to Product Managers to be the gurus on the product, understanding the ins and outs of all the features. So how do you get to the point where you know the product inside and out, especially when you are assigned a new product or change companies? The hard fact is that if you want to really learn the product, you're going to have to figure out how to do most of the learning yourself. Read Jacques Murphy's Guerrilla Training: Learning the Product for some tips on how to go about learning the product in all its depth.
