About to start my first PM job after consulting. Any tips to get myself prepared and ramp up quickly? Books to read, courses to take, etc.? Currently doing ops consulting, no tech background.

Recently, I developed quite a lot of interest in Product management and I want to make a transition into this stream.

I would love to get handson with the concepts that I am learning, but not sure (TBC)

Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
Let’s say you sell a 3yr long project in September. Do you put the 3yr project in the CRM or break it down? Breaking down is complicated, but full deal close ruins reporting. Firm can’t decide.

Today I was officially diagnosed with adult adhd. I can’t begin to explain how relieved I am. It turns out things that I’ve considered personality defects are actually symptoms of this disorder. Interrupting people, saying inappropriate things, swirling on a topic for days: all issues I’ve battled with since childhood and finally have an answer. Mental health is important. Talk to your doctor and do research. You never know what’s going on inside your brain.

Is it worth applying to Sloan’s extended R3 without a GMAT or should I just wait until next cycle? Sounds like if you are accepted R3, it’s conditional upon achieving a certain GMAT score.
