Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education.

Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!

Cracking the PM interview

like

Bought “Cracking the PM career.” Let’s see how that goes. It includes the interview part.

PMP is revamping their curriculum. New version release slated for Aug 1st. Maybe read the new manual. Its supposed to focus less on deliverables and more on overall project delivery

Yeah, I maintain it but don’t follow it to the T.

So I'm interviewing, have had loose salary conversation (talked about band but not specifics), and approaching the official offer stage. It's become clear the role is something I'm very well qualified for, but their pay expectations for the role are much lower than mine. How do I ask if there is (though from what I can tell there is not existing and we'd have to create) a higher level position in the team in a higher salary band I could take instead?

When do you stop interviewing after getting a verbal offer that you verbally accepted (it may not be the dream job but checks right boxes—comp, benefits, good company), but you haven’t received the formal offer letter? Two other companies want to move me forward in the interview process. I already told one that I’ve received an offer and they are trying to move up an interview with the hiring manager. The other knew I was expecting an offer and just asked if I can do a 2nd interview this week.
