Product Management for UX Designers

By Christian Crumlish

To be published: 2021

More and more, designers are grappling with product management—as a peer discipline, as the job title of a boss or teammate, and as a future career destination. But there is surprisingly little help for designers who seek to understand what it takes to manage products and services. In Product Management for UX Designers, Christian Crumlish plumbs the intersections and gaps between design and product management for both designers who want to work with product managers and designers who want to become product managers.
