Communication Skills

In order to be persuasive, a professional product manager should have strong skills in both oratory and written communication. As a PM, you spend 1/3 of your time with each of reading/writing/speaking. 1. First, reading gives you the arguments to make your case. 2. Then, you write them down in a an extraordinarily clear and precise brief which presents airtight logic for why we’re doing this and why it’s important. 3. Finally, you must be able to speak extemporaneously to people about it.
