Product management. Not because it’s one skill, but because it’s a combination of business and technical. It’s highly sought after as a good product manager can make or break a difficult product build. If you can show that you’re able to own the success of something and also rally dev teams behind you, you should have a very high hit rate on your resume every time you want to pivot to a new role


Best way to get technical exposure is to develop your analytics skills so you’re able to code up your own analyses through SQL/Python. Data science modeling isn’t really necessary for most PMs. It’s a differentiator if you’re able to answer questions quickly without leaning on a data analyst to compile everything for you. Then, hop over to industry in maybe a BI or analytics role and start building a true understanding of the company’s underlying tech. Use data to back up your recommendations and once you start having a track record of being right and show deep expertise in the product, then you can try and pivot to a PM role. Then you’ll be ready to make calls cross functionally and begin building a vision for how your piece of the product will evolve over time. Consulting experience should help in terms of people and expectations management skills, specially for SaaS products




Ooh following


I’m less excited by skills than topic areas.

Drones. Cannabis/hemp. Telehealth. Sustainable supply chain.




Truck driver

this definitely helped me make ends meet post Deloitte layoff


Selling, change management at large scale, sales enablement

Sales is selling, client relationship management, owning a revenue number. Sales enablement is tools, technology, strategy and training to enable sales teams to sell faster/more easily and sales leaders to forecast and manage more easily. So Salesforce Sales Cloud implementation strategy could fall into sales enablement, but so could telephony, training platform design and implementation, all kinds of stuff.

Most companies don’t do sales enablement well if at all and it’s an easy source of ROI.
