Hiring a Head of Product | Rich Mironov | BoS USA Online 2020

Rich Mironov // Mironov Consulting

If you¬†don’t have a Head of Product you may suffer from:¬†narrow focus on engineer/development productivity; underpowered product management teams; customer benefits misaligned with actual features; and lack of a realistic product strategy.

But it’s hard to hire a Head of Product. We don’t know what product leaders do, and disagree about what’s most important in a new one. We write wildly aspirational job descriptions for candidates and we confuse subject/market expertise with product management/leadership experience to¬†name just a few errors.

Rich Mironov wrote The Art of Product Management and is a voice for the scrappy entrepreneur in all of us. In this talk from BoS USA Online, he looks at the important aspects of product leaders:

  • Organizing the product organization.
  • Cross-functional leadership.
  • Building what users actually need.
