6 tools for remote product managers
Product management in a remote setting can be challenging. Since managing products is inherently very cross-functional and requires frequent communication, a remote setting can add barriers. This applies to any remote scenario, including being part of a remote office, being a remote employee, or as part of a fully distributed company. Besides having the right processes in place (a separate post will cover these), having the right tools in place can make a big difference.

Prioritisation of roadmap initiatives is one of the most important recurring activities of product managers. Typically you want to include stakeholders and team members in that process. It is our experience that it can be a practical challenge on how to effectively collect people’s input, normalise their data, and then review it in a meaningful way. Often, input comes fragmented and in different forms and people can be in different locations or time-zones.
