Comments: I loved Marty Cagan’s book “Inspired” and was curious about “Empowered.” It read more as a compilation of ideas tailored toward companies/people outside of technology/software-oriented industries.
Insight(s) that resonated:
(1) A reminder of the importance of coaching in the PM manager role.
(2) Platform teams have very different success metrics vs. experience teams.
(3) Bad strategy is a consequence of leaders not willing to make trade-offs.
