CEO small attendant The way of communication between product manager and leaderPosted by: admin | Posted on: March 5, 2017
is a large Internet Co, took the goose factory for example, the common product manager with layers of managers, all kinds of products, product executive director, basically no direct access and Pony (Ma Huateng), but to communicate with their more direct supervisor. Because the author and I do not have the work experience of large companies, even if it is only YY, little significance.
but in a small start-up company, product managers and the boss to discuss the product more opportunities. In fact, in our second city, do not set the product manager position of "Internet companies" very much, even can say: set the product basically can represent the gang the company wants to move towards a more professional direction.

But calm down and think about it, there are two main reasons for this situation: 1 your boss has not yet formed the habit of calling you; you have a sense of presence in the eyes of others almost zero. The most fundamental reason is second. Product manager, should be the soul of the team, you have a low sense of existence with your own work methods and ways of life can not be separated. So how to improve the sense of existence I give you the following recommendations:
