What are some actionable goals a junior PM/PO might have?

I recently got extended for a junior PM/PO based role. My manager asked my what types of goals I have in mind that they can help me achieve during my time in this position. The thing is I have reasons why I want to be a junior PM/PO but I don't really have specific goals in mind. I just want to learn and gain experience, and I don't want it to come off as I'm not serious about my position. I'm also a junior so it's not like I'm in charge of an entire product/managing a team. I've also still yet to receive my list of specific responsibilities for the role so until I get that I guess the only things I want to get better at are: - Getting better at conducting market research in terms of our competitors - Foster strong relationships with development/ design team to ensure everyone is aligned with what we are working on Does anyone have suggestions?

What are some PM-focused books I can read?

I'm pursuing a product management position and I'd like to get into the mindset of being a PM. I'm currently a software developer. I know that experience is best, so I am working on that, but in the meantime, I'd love to know some books that I might be able to take a look at. Thanks! #product-management #pm #software-engineer #GivingisCaring

How could I boost my CV to become a product manager eventually?

I've always thought of becoming a strategy consultant, though I fear the opportunity has passed. Lately, I have come to know of product management and took on a course with Udacity and loved it. However, I am really not sure how to get into it from where I am at as there do not seem to be entry jobs. I’d like to know the best approaches to get there. I am fairly old and have rather little experience at this point that I could boast. How should I efficiently use my time to boost my my CV/experience/etc.? Is there a chance at all? #business #productmanagement #productmanager #product-management #noexperience #entry #advice
