This is a podcast for people interested in building or designing tech products. At least once a week, I speak to product managers, product leaders, product marketers, UX professionals, and anyone else involved in product management and product delivery. Come and listen to some great conversations and get inspired!

About the Episode
Janna is co-founder of ProdPad and Mind the Product, and inventor of the Now/Next/Later roadmap. We talk about a few things:
How ProdPad started as an idea to solve a problem for Janna in her Product Management job and became a company serving thousands of Product Managers
How date-based roadmaps are the devil and how to tackle management wanting false security
The perils of building features for clients, falling into the trap of being an agency instead of a product company, and never getting the chance to solve big problems
How Mind the Product started out and how they've pivoted to run successful events even in the middle of a pandemic (and how she misses a good flat white)
Janna's recent ADHD diagnosis, what that meant to her, how she's managing it, and some of the advantages and disadvantages the condition brings to Product Management
More about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
You can find out more about ADHD in many places on the internet, and get support for a diagnosis via your medical practioner just like Janna did. Here are a few uncurated links offering further information.
