How do you identify a talented product manager?

A talented product manager would be

  1. Someone who sees consistent patterns in the market which otherwise might not be obvious and ability to relate this into a solution that addresses this opportunity
  2. A person who has great passion for building a product (defining the overall experience and not just components of it)
  3. He has the tenacity to execute to the product vision over multiple iterations
  4. Understands what would constitute a true success
  5. Knows what is ahead 3-4 steps, can identify a win or a failureĀ  and knows how to pivot from an unsuccessful position
  6. Can communicate succinctly.

There are many more qualities, but some of the above are the ones that you would consistently see in top quality pm’s
