My hope is that this article serves the community in a few ways:
This is the first step I took when I got serious about self-studying in product management and working on my personal brand. Back when I was first activating my LinkedIn account, I quickly requested connections with anyone and everyone. Years later, these “connections” mean nothing to me. My connection to them is fake, really — not backed by any actual relationship of any kind. Furthermore, since posts of connections automatically make it into my feed, my feed becomes a mess. I don’t know them, haven’t worked with them, and their posts are completely irrelevant.
I went through every single connection…
I desperately needed this but I couldn’t find anything shared out there specific to Trino (Presto is now Trino). I found this to be a fairly straightforward workaround that can work for any string with any number of words. Let’s take a lower case name as an example…
(select ‘jordan lamborn’ as name)
+ — — — — — — — — +
| name |

SELECT(array_join((transform((split(name_table.name,’ ‘)), x ->…
Ask these 3 questions and document the answers next to your hypothesis. Ask them early and answer them honestly to potentially save a lot of pain and time.
This is the most important question to ask before running any experiment. it could point you towards a whole different testing sequence. It could shine a light on your primary metric and point out that it is the wrong one. It could point out a weakness in your hypothesis.
If the experiment is a winner and you prove your hypothesis correct, what next? Will you test again with another primary metric? Will…
I’ve seen some really bad “hypotheses.” Sometimes they might be written as a simple if-then statement: “If we make the button blue, then the click-through rate will increase.” Sound familiar?
Then there are times when someone thinks a competitor observation is a hypothesis: “Blue Button Group, Inc. is making their buttons blue.”
A common version is the one that seems just wordy enough to be dangerous because it’s not bad enough to raise alarms: “By making the button blue instead of grey, people will see it more and click it, increasing click-through rate.”
This is where I am hoping some…
I have reviewed more than 100 techniques for prioritization. I wanted to share some that stood out for group collaboration potential.
Teams can do this cumulative voting technique with dots or without. Dots represent a vote, and voting can be done however the facilitator prefers.
How it works: With a collection of items (for example, sticky notes on a wall), each person puts a dot (with a sticker or marker) on their favorite ideas. Voting can be done on individual items or themes/collections of items. …
After working in marketing for a few years, I noticed a mental model had formed in my mind that has become so ingrained in my worldview that I would see it almost everywhere.
The concept, for me at least, goes something like this:
This is beneficial in two ways:
Here is the prioritization frameworks list of over 100 different techniques to aid prioritization of features, projects, or requirements. The intended purpose is to serve as inspiration. I recommend thoroughly thinking about the needs of your users, team, and product before selecting any method. …
I am no leadership guru, but I have been in enterprise marketing for over 7 years. I’ve managed people, reported to several managers along the way, and worked with many different teams. I’ve noticed some patterns about what works and what doesn’t.
A title does not make someone a leader, and being a leader does not require a title. Who said this? I did some quick googling to find out which influencers could be attributed. It turns out that everyone says this! Why do we so often call people 'leader' just because they are in charge or get paid the…
I’ve been on a little prioritization journey. After documenting all of the feature prioritization techniques in one place, I am still not done digesting all of the learnings from that exercise. Here I want to walk through what I found regarding prioritization criteria critical but are rarely included in the process.
Although I have reviewed over 100 prioritization methods so far, only some make sense to critique specific factors. Some are more thematic and open-ended, where there are no predefined components (MoSCoW, for example). On the other hand, most scoring frameworks are pretty cut and dry for what goes into…
