I read an interesting article yesterday on product judgement.
tl;dr it’s acquired and honed (not innate and static)
The journey product managers / designers / marketers take to develop such instinct fascinates me - I’d love to hear from readers (comment below) on what they think is the foundation of good product sense.
some ideas to get the thread rolling (but feel free to chime in with new / off-the-wall thoughts):
problem empathy - sussing out true pain points
market forecasting - understanding mega trends
data sifting - ability to separate signal from noise
skillful framing - asking eigenquestions if you will
