Chris Vander Mey â 9 Summary

Need a shortcut to a degree in shipping great software Successful team leaders must have an extremely broad skill set to find the right product work through a complex and ever changing development process and do it all incredibly uickly In this guide Chris Vander Mey provides a simplified no BS approach to the entire software lifecycle distilled from lessons he learned as a manager at and. Plenty of insightful nuggets in this comprehensive guide to shipping software with a healthy dose of sharp wit poking both business and tech It's ironic that I read 75% of the book after leaving a PM role at but the content was still relevant and my own experience added extra depth to the concepts The key takeaway of the book is that as a product lead your goal is to ship the product warts and all Shipping is about managing tradeoffs and done is better than perfect The author dives into all the key drivers and pitfalls balancing budgetscopeschedule hiring people managing conflict asking technical uestions contributing to UX design presenting to leadership tracking actionable metrics writing emails escalating appropriately and formulating documents This book focuses on large scale product launches ie corporate but that shouldn't stop startups from picking up this guide The frameworks which make up the majority of the content are relevant for all products And ultimately we all face the same problems 90% miscommunication 9% misaligned objectives and 1% from the inevitable bad apples

    Shipping Greatness is a guide to 'shipping software' in the broadest possible sense Chris Mey walks you through the software development process from start to finish and it’s readily apparent that he knows what he’s talking about As far as content is concerned then the book is pretty comprehensive Unfortunately when it comes to presentation Shipping Greatness comes up short This is a how to guide where the author just can't seem to decide on who his target audience is As a result he tends to dive too deeply into widely divergent topics to the extent that pretty much everybody is bound to find a lot of detailed instructions they'll never have the opportunity to followThis particular topics Chris tackles include finding and pitching product opportunities writing specs managing software development debugging code and finally shipping finished software If pressed I'd say that these stages are described from the perspective of a product manager though again perspectives shift freuently and without cue Shipping Greatness is best appreciated if you think of it as a broad overview of how products are developed at establish respected software companies Chris hails from Google and and he uses lots of examples In this sense the book is very informativeUnfortunately Mey is not out to inform he's out to instruct and he tends to get very specific with his advice This is exactly how to create a revenue forecast model in excel he tells you That is how to use the omnigraffe to create wireframes and here are a dozen screenshots to walk you through it If you're an entrepreneur examining a market opportunity knowing how to make a good revenue model is critical If you're a product manager or designer you might – might – find his step by step guide to using omnigraffe useful But for anyone else you'll be left scratching your head and skipping aheadTo conclude then Shipping Greatness has a lot of legitimate field tested knowledge to offer The content is there distracting digressions aside you'll learn a lot about how great software companies do their thing Unfortunately this alone is not enough to recommend it The book tries too hard to teach too much and the author's didactic efforts are obstructed by his inability to focus on a target audience Shipping Greatness is too preoccupied with the roles of various people where it’d be better off aiming to explain complex processes It tries too hard to teach you disparate specific lessons without bothering to ground them in a coherent narrative framework and as a result it's not always clear what the takeaways are supposed to be That is to say there's goodness to be had you'll just have to work for it

    I should start this book much earlier It is a very good guidance for product manager who just breaks into this position and walks through the pm skills However it is for shipping software product especially for google and because the author worked a lot in these companies Might agree with everything listed here inside of this book as a PM with two years past experience at Oracle Still a very useful and practical book for a new pm

    Good summary of fundamentals of PMing Geared towards large companies

    I think Shipping Greatness is a decent attempt at explaining the nuts and bolts of the software industry Unfortunately it does not comprehensively explain the product engineering process in detail explaining how to set up the development ecosystem like setting up version control software setting up incident management the designing process in a little detail Its like a business guide for engineers or a technical guide for managers Matter of fact I believe Chris got confused when it came to addressing the kind of audience that would like this book

    I didn't really care for this book or get much out of it but I'm also clearly not the target audience of the book as I'm not a team lead or in charge of shipping anything Maybe I'll read it again if I ever find myself in such a role but my guess is there's a bunch of other better books out there on this topic


  8. says:

    I'm biased because I know Chris AND I'm a Product Manager at but I was honestly impressed by this practical book on Product Management for techies It's filled with solid advice for what it means to own all the aspects of customer experience from feature performance and scalability to user interface and analytics

    This book packs in a lot of great information and the author's pedigree couldn't be better That is unless he had spent a tour at Facebook as well It was a fairly uick read for me since I've been doing product for the last eight years now and it's geared for a non development audience
