UnderStanding Product Management - Part 3


Previously on Understanding Product Management, I talked about Product Management Terminologies, and terms used in the Product Management stack. Here, I will be talking about some Product Management tools.

Product Management tools / softwares

A tool is a structure in which you can build or manage a product. It serves as a foundation, so you're not starting entirely from scratch. Frameworks are typically associated with specific stacks and are suited to different types of tasks.

  1. Jira: Jira Software is an agile product management tool that supports any agile methodology, be it scrum, kanban, or your own personally themed template. From agile boards, backlogs, roadmaps, and reports, to integrations and add-ons you can plan, track, and manage all your agile software development projects from a single tool.

  2. Whimsical: Whimsical is a unified suite of collaboration tools. With Whimsical, you can ideate or create mind maps, flowcharts, wireframes, projects, docs, and more. And Move ideas forward faster with visual communication.

  3. Trello: Trello is a web-based application inspired by the Kanban system, and it smoothly accommodates Agile principles. It's easy to use and offers a visual approach to project management. Teams can use Trello's board, lists, and cards to create visual representations of their tasks.

  4. Slack: Slack is a messaging app for business that connects people to the information they need. By bringing people together to work as one unified team, Slack transforms the way organizations communicate

  5. AHA! : The Aha! software can help any product manager understand the why, when, and what of their products to make product management easy.

  6. Miro: Miro helps your team go beyond brainstorming, with a wide variety of tasks that require collaboration: workshopping, strategy mapping, Agile ceremonies, UX research and design, product development, customer discovery, and process visualization.

When working on a project, I use either Miro or Trello. To learn more about other Product Management Frameworks, you can check out More On Product Management Frameworks
