Product Management Techniques

I found this amazing list online by Lenny Rachitsky who has an amazing newsletter and shares extra goodness on LinkedIn.

✍️ 1-Pagers / PRDs

  1. Lennys 1-Pager template — How I start every project
  2. Kevin Yien’s PRD template (PM at Square) — Love this whole template, particularly the “Non-Goals” section, and the step-by-step flow
  3. Asana’s project brief template — Also love this whole template, particularly the problem statement framework
  4. Intercom’s story template — Love the simplicity, while still having everything you need to get started
  5. Product Hunt’s PRD template — Love the way it begins (Who, Why, What), though a bit long
  6. Adam Waxman’s PRD template (Design at SeatGeek) — Love 1-Pager summary section before it dives deep
  7. Steve Morin’s 1-pager template (EM at Asana) — Love the focus on success criteria and risks
  8. Figma’s PRD template — A super comprehensive plug-and-play template
  9. Adam Thomas’ initiative template — A reminder of how valuable it is to keep these to one page, at least to start
