What a year 2020 has been. It has revolutionized the way we work and our lifestyle in general. Remote office at home has already become a new normal for most of us. In this episode of the Product Drama podcast, we talk about remote product management in a post-pandemic world, the benefits and challenges of working from home, and the future of product management. 

Clement Kao, product manager at Blend and a co-founder of Product Manager HQ joined us to share his experience and thoughts on remote product management. He talked on two different dimensions: the one as an employee at Blend, and another as a leader at Product Manager HQ. We also talked about:

  • How to become a successful remote product manager?
  • What is Zoom fatigue and how to avoid it?
  • What does the future of remote product management look like?
  • How to be productive when working remotely? 
  • And much more!

Here are some quotes:

“You need to be thoughtful in terms of reaching out to people but also give them space”.

"How do we want to want to make sure that everyone's in sync on what are the kinds of work that we're doing without necessarily feel like we're micromanaging?"

“There are so many workflows that won’t work unless you make your products talk to each other”.

“One of the challenges of product teams is not understanding high-fidelity of who is the user and what is their pain”.

“The future of product management is not yet determined and there’s still a lot to happen”. 

"Product manager always serves customers, business stakeholders, and development teams".
