Hello everyone, my name is Munin.
Recently, on a whim, I want to sort out the development and evolution Number List of the role of product manager from the perspective of changing times.
In a week, I used a visual method, using the timeline timeline and important industry transition nodes as the main reference, to complete this "Illustrated Product Manager Development and Evolution History" (the full picture is at the end of the article).
The drawing process was extremely difficult, and I wanted to give up many times in the middle.
The entire production process not only taught me to re-look at the profession from the perspective of a grand narrative, but also allowed me to find the meaning of the role of product manager from the important drivers of industry changes.
Let me explain, this "Illustrated Product Manager Development History".
The Stone Age
In the primitive Stone Age, each tribe was a small society. In primitive tribes, there are hunters, doctors, farmers, leaders, prophets and other roles.
In a tribe, members often report various needs to the leader. After a period of time, the leader found that the questions raised by everyone were almost the same.
Farmers don't know where to buy hunters' meat, hunters don't know where to find doctors to heal, doctors don't know where to buy farmers' grain.
The leader entrusted the task of solving the problem to the prophet. The prophet first interviewed different members to collect and sort out everyone's needs.
After the prophet summed up the needs, it was found that everyone's needs were the needs of information communication.
The best solution to the needs of information communication is to set up bulletin boards in the territory to make information transparent and meet the needs of everyone for information exchange.
Next, the prophet will design the size, layout, and information display structure of the bulletin board.
After reporting the detailed plan to the leader, the leader will coordinate the tribal members to design and launch the bulletin board.
