The job of a Product person is hard to define. We’re a little of everything, depending on the day and what’s needed. The one thing we can all agree on is that it’s never really done. Christian Idiod—partner at Silicon Valley Product Group—joins us on the podcast to break down what’s expected of us, what we should actually be doing, how to get better at it, and how to know if we’ve actually got a great job.

Episode transcript
Lily Smith:
Randy, so we’re recording this episode on Friday afternoon, and I am absolutely fried, but I’m also totally buzzing, because of our guest this week.
Randy Silver:
I’m equally fried, Lily. So, tell me who have we got?
Lily Smith:
We have the wonderful Christian Idiodi, partner at Silicon Valley Product Group. And he’s going to tell us all about what a product manager’s job is supposed to be.
Randy Silver:

Randy Silver:
Every week, we talk to the best product people from around the globe about how we can improve our practise and build products that people love.

Christian, welcome to The Product Experience Podcast. It’s so lovely to have you here for our topic of the day.
Christian Idiodi:
Thank you, Lily. Nice to be here.
Lily Smith:
So, before we get stuck in to our conversation, for anyone who hasn’t met you before, could you give us a real quick intro into who you are and what you’re currently doing, and also just a bit of backstory on how you got into pr...
