In every company I work, I hope that the #product #manager is a #technical guy.

You can have better feature discussions, go in-depth as to what is possible and
what's not and explore new domains which are technically challenging.

I only wish that there are more product managers out there with a strong
technical background. This maybe an unpopular opinion.

Could we ever build #Google by being non-technical?

Yet I see a lot of undergrads #rushing into product jobs without any technical
domain knowledge and then ending up in jobs which require more #stakeholder
#management than product thinking.

How will you build an #iPhone by just looking at #customer #funnels?

(Edit: I am not downplaying the role of non-technical skills, I'm just
highlighting the need for technical enlightenment)
