A product manager comes up with cool ideas and executes against them.
But what happens when unnecessary features creep into your product?
They bloat the software, making it slower and resource-intensive to run.
In his Ted Talk – Simplicity Sells, David Pogue pointed out how using all the toolbars of Microsoft Word left only a tiny area for the actual text.
He said – “The hard part is not deciding what features to add, it’s deciding what features to leave out.”
It’s important to ensure that your product adds value to the user – and not just entice them with bells & whistles.
