On an ordinary weekday afternoon, my colleague, Xiao R, sent me a screenshot of the DingTalk conversation (with a grieved expression). The general meaning is that Sister Y asked the PM to add a few items to the FAQ. The demand is very common, and the communication method is very sharp.
"Don't ask this or that, I see a lot of questions on the front line, just add it to me quickly!"
"Can you let me take a look at the research data you have compiled here?"
"Didn't I tell you, I saw a lot of problems, I didn't have time to sort out any information, you quickly add it to me, why is it so laborious for such a small matter!"
In the end, due to intermittent repeated phone number list communication for many days, there was no progress, and I had to upgrade to me to deal with it.
In fact, similar things often happen between the business side and the product, which is why the biggest cost of the production and research team is not development but "communication".
So how should business students raise demand for product managers in order to be more efficient?
01 Explain the background
Whenever business students submit requirements, they have a typical characteristic: full of passion, a feeling of saving the world and liberating all mankind.
Business classmates with this trait are very good, but they often make a typical mistake: taking it for granted that the product also thinks the same way.
However, the product at this time will only think about one question - "Does this demand really exist?"
This is a qualitative consideration. If the demand itself does not exist, any subsequent investment by the production and research team will be a waste.
