Linkedin  ist ein berufliches Netzwerk mit vielen aktiven Gruppen. So existiert für Produktmanager eine globale Community, in der Produktmanager spannende Themen miteinander diskutieren. Ein Beispiel ist die von Carter Durham an die Kollegen gestellte Frage:

„So what do you do exactly?“ – what is your one-sentence answer as a Product Manager?
Die Resonanz war riesig und zeigt alle Facetten des realen Produktmanager-Leben von General Manager über Strategen, Marktforscher, Technologen, Kümmerer, Marketeer/ Marktmanager, Controller bis hin zum zahnlosen Tiger.
