  1. Moving Up the Career Ladder with Thor Mitchell

    I think, by now, we all know that product management is hard. And while we spend a lot of time focusing on the things that we’re building and obsessing over our users, it becomes easy to neglect ourselves. That’s one of the reasons I’ve chosen our chat with Thor Mitchell (ex-Google and ex-CPO at Crowdcube) as one of my favourite episodes of the year. I’m a big believer in taking time to consider personal development – one of the main reasons I started ProductTank in Bristol in 2016.

    It’s also one of my favourite podcast episodes because I LOVE practical advice. And Thor also gave us a great talk, full of practical advice, when he visited ProductTank Bristol, which covered how to move up the product career ladder and the difference in product roles in a big corporation vs a startup.

    Hopefully you’ll find this episode just as insightful and useful as I do as you ponder where you’ve come from and where you want to go.

    Happy listening!

  5. Hard Negotiations: Why a Softer Approach Yields Better Outcomes

    Most business books push a singular narrative around negotiations: Go hard or go home. The advice is tied to the idea that the negotiation table is a place of conflict where one party must best the other. But research conducted by Maurice Schweitzer, Wharton professor of operations, information and decisions, and Einav Hart, Wharton postdoctoral researcher and a data scientist at Uber, suggests that using a softer approach can often yield better long-term outcomes. In their paper, “Getting to Less: When Negotiation Harms Post-Agreement Performance,” the scholars find that more harmonious bargaining, and sometimes not negotiating at all, can yield better long-term results. Schweitzer and Hart spoke to Knowledge@Wharton about what people should keep in mind when they are ready to make a deal.

  6. Daniel Kahneman: Thinking Fast and Slow, Deep Learning, and AI

    Daniel Kahneman is winner of the Nobel Prize in economics for his integration of economic science with the psychology of human behavior, judgment and decision-making. He is the author of the popular book “Thinking, Fast and Slow” that summarizes in an accessible way his research of several decades, often in collaboration with Amos Tversky, on cognitive biases, prospect theory, and happiness. The central thesis of this work is a dichotomy between two modes of thought: “System 1” is fast, instinctive and emotional; “System 2” is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The book delineates cognitive biases associated with each type of thinking.
