Just left to start as a PM. Can you give examples of these product principles and how they are applied to a potential new product/feature?

We have a few at the org level, but not at the project level.

I used product principles but they were not written down regularly. But the team depended on them to aid decision making. This was just one organization.

I think it's pretty common but not everywhere. We use them.

Many places do, some more relaxed than others.

@OP: Can you share an example of how it works? What are included? Do people really put them in for every project? I have found using them at the beginning of a project does help to align expectations around decision making. E.g. if there is a debate about something, we can point to project goals & principles to sort it out. But I have also found it’s not very commonly used at least in the teams that I have seen.
