CoachingSearch.com recently posted an article about Ohio State's football program in which Urban Meyer, the Ohio State coach, described how players' practice repetitions were tracked. In this case the goal is to prevent injuries. (Yes, I'm a college football addict. But I digress.)
The article has a lot of parallels in the product management world. I'm a firm believer in using repetition to build PM "muscle memory". How many times have you cranked out a requirements doc? Or reviewed a cohort chart for outliers? Or proactively scheduled a customer interview? Did you do it monthly? Quarterly? Ad-hoc? Did you notice any improvements in how you "did the rep"?
So much of the PM discipline is just that - discipline. Using a checklist and sticking to it. Measuring your company's / catalog's / team's metrics on a regular basis & learning from it.
I'm nowhere near the 2,000 Rep Club. That's why I'm still learning. You should be too.
Building an audience is already tricky, but establishing a truecommunity is even harder.
Setting up your blog, forum, or chat room is only the beginning. It'swhat you do after that will make all the difference. So in this guide, we'll look at nine "bricks" you can use to build up your community.
