Scott Cook in the session

23rd October, 2013 will be a date I will remember for a long time to come. I was among lucky few to be invited by Intuit Bangalore to participate in “The Power of Product Experiments – insights” session conducted by none other than Scott Cook, the founder of Intuit.

While there was tons of learning and insights shared by the champion on product experiment, there was something in particular for product management professionals that I wish to share with you all. Answering to one of the questions from audience on “What traits does he look in a product manager?”, he said:

  1. Passion
  2. Problem solver
  3. Learner (absorb all like sponge)
  4. Someone who gets things done
  5. Subject Matter Expert on something and is willing to learn more
