Ten indicators that you may have been in Product Management for too long
Daniel Shefer reports these ten indicators that you may have been in Product Management for too long...
1. When your creative writing is limited to making up SKUs. 2. When your kids asks for a bicycle for their birthday and you have them write a business case and specs. 3. When you just know that Sales and Development are out to get you. 4. You request an MRD from your family before you can choose a restaurant. 5. Every social event becomes a marketing discussion. For example, "these cocktail napkins don't continue the theme set by the dinner table and neither incorporates a common logo." 6. You request more information from your place of worship so you can understand their positioning. 7. You have automatic replies to every question a sales person might ask. 8. When looking at a new text formatting feature, you think "hey, this is really hot!" 9. You know when to use "product management" and when to use "Product Management." 10. You start writing about Product Management. (Thanks to Ron Mironov and Rick Chapman for contributions.)
