We have been successful due to the tight collaboration between product management, project management, and engineering, and Doug has been a key part of that. Doug is passionate about creating products that sell and winning in the market. He is able to effectively talk through trade-offs to get to the right business decision.
Doug is a master of common sense, and has many skill sets that are yet to shine! Works well with others and always gives 110%. Doug looks at any business as if it was his own. I whole heartily recommend Doug for any career that requires high attention to detail and customer satisfaction. Without a doubt, Doug is a dying breed among the business world these days!
Doug has written an excellent guide on methods, tools, and insights on helping anyone in the product development process – especially product managers – to achieve success. He covers the gamut from understanding customer needs through products launches, all of which are critical for a product to succeed. He lays it all out in an easy to understand way, and his advice is very useful and practical. Product managers can easily use the information at any time during product creation.
Doug has done a fantastic job making this a very easy-to-access book as various needs arise. Doug is a high energy, driven successful product manager, it’s great to see him put his knowledge and experience together like this so we all can benefit. It has been my pleasure to have worked with Doug, and I have seen him effectively use many techniques as we have worked together.
