We launched this blog from the insight gained from conversations with friends and colleagues in the community. The 2.0 experience is about contribution, participation and collaboration. The 2.0 release of a product is recognition of the success of the initial release. We could not have foreseen these new requirements in the initial release, but now we can leverage what we learned from the first release. Now we can deliver a better experience and give our customers better value.

The purpose of this blog is to establish an open forum for those interested in building the next version of the product management practice.

Some of the challenges that I hear frequently from 2.0 product managers are:
1. Distributed teams – the new normal
2. Go-to-Market responsibilities
3. The New Metrics Craze
4. Reducing Cycle Time and Churn
5. Dependencies, priorities and technical debt
6. Dealing with executive appetites

You are invited to contribute and participate as we all learn more about what’s coming next. Welcome to Product Management 2.0!
