Why It's Important for Product Managers to have tech skills (and how we help them get there)July 1, 20201 min read
Building Software is becoming increasingly difficult with many moving pieces and specializations. The role a Product Manager plays in orchestrating this complexity is crucial - and understanding how software works (and how it's built) is key for building great products.
But how should a Product Manager go about learning these necessary technical skills?
Our experts Jad Yaghi and Sam Kawtharani recently hosted a webinar on this exact topic, covering :
- Why technical skills are key for a PM to build a great product
- Which technical skills will drive great results
- Tips on how PMs can grow their technical "chops", and how to prioritize what you should learn
- Examples and case studies on how Intersect has built a formal process to help up-skill our PMs
