    Kindle completewoman.co ¹ Well Designed Kindle Ç well kindle, designed kindle, Well Designed KindleI should caveat this review by saying that I am a software tester and developer This book appears to be designed specifically for product managers I'm normally all for crossing barriers between domains However I don't feel like this was a good guide for those trying to get a peek into the world of a project manager The book gets awfully specific about certain techniues that product managers might use to create empathy with the users but there just aren't enough examples to see how those techniues are really applicable or useful I think I would have prefered either a shallow look at the techniues that gives me a better idea of the benefits of the techniues or a deeper dive into each of the techniues that would allow me to comfortably exercise

    Kindle completewoman.co ¹ Well Designed Kindle Ç well kindle, designed kindle, Well Designed KindleThis book is about using empathy and customer emotions in order to develop better products that are deeply rooted in lives and behaviors of clients The aim is to create products and services which are emotionally connected with the desires wants and needs of the customer and the way of doing it is being empathetic with them ie step into their shoes spend time with them in their daily lives and most importantly ask Why do they do what they doThe author supports his theory relying on interviews and the development of a fictional case The interviews which I think are the best part of the book include some very known personalities in the world of tech startups like Ga

    Kindle completewoman.co ¹ Well Designed Kindle Ç well kindle, designed kindle, Well Designed KindleWell designed by Jon Kolko can be seen as one big case study It has almost a novel character on how to approach product management backed with method descriptions and practical tips The author leads through a design driven approach to product management from determining product market fit to product strategy to polishing the detailsThe intended audience are designers with an interest in if not the desire to move into product management The ideas Kolko describes are basically applying design thinking methods to product management with the goal of fostering empathy and make sure a product is based on user needs In all honesty nothing new if you come from a user centred design backgroundEach chapter is further enriched with interviews from other product managers sharing their experiences learnings and failures This gives the book a practical perspective especially pointing out that situations and environments are different and that fr

    Kindle completewoman.co ¹ Well Designed Kindle Ç well kindle, designed kindle, Well Designed KindleThis book really taught me about user empathy go out of your office watch users consume your productmere interviews won't give you insights U gotta watch how do users use your productRight from the concepts of sharing economyresources are scarceavoiding feature creepcreating and features would make your users take time to solve their pain resisting from the urge of pushing your thoughts ahead of your consumers among many others this is really one hell of a book Although it is all about digital products you can apply these theories to offline products as well This book also taught me that apart from the pains that a user wants to solve by using your product you as a manager need to understand the contextsetting in which your pr

    Kindle completewoman.co ¹ Well Designed Kindle Ç well kindle, designed kindle, Well Designed KindleThis book is the closest I've come to one that summarizes the process I've used to build things and one of the better books on the role of the PM discipline especially through interviewsMy only major concern is the lack of diversity featured in the book just one interviewee talking about Kathy Sierra and a brief snippet from a designer at Frog I think getting a bit further away from the typical product people would have added nuance and depth to the concepts

    Kindle completewoman.co ¹ Well Designed Kindle Ç well kindle, designed kindle, Well Designed KindleIn Well Designed Mr Kolko provides solid case studies in the form of interviews supporting the idea that empathy allows product managers and designers to build and design products people will truly love and use This book was difficult to read at various points and that may have been because I am not a designer so I had to go back and reread them This book is well worth the effort to read and I would recommend it to others
