Erik Hogan has been learning what it means to be a great Product Manager for almost two decades. Much of that time has been spent understanding how to be a customer champion and trusted leader who can scale. He derives great satisfaction factoring complex problems into reusable parts and giving engineering exactly what they need to execute quickly. Lately, he’s been applying fundamental product concepts of simplicity, storytelling, and focus to affect organizational change - a very different type of "product". Also, his wife still gets mad when he asks for her success criteria.
