Edward Chiang, Director of PM @ Google. Pt 2

Some PMs think that their job is to be a router.

They take notes. They organize meetings. They connect people.

They route information across the team.

But they don’t bring a unique perspective.

A PM should be able to will an idea to life. To craft a vision and drive their team towards it.

PMs that act like overpaid routers miss this. They organize but don’t build.
