How to approach a product management case study


Want to know how to handle a product management case study for an interview? These can be hard to figure out given how many ways there are to answer.

Rajesh Sankaran and I talked through his case study for a Google Interview.

Some questions we address include:

  1. How should you approach case studies?
  2. How can you outline the case study?
  3. What tools should you use?
  4. Should you go into details about the solution or focus more on the problem to solve?

Here is the framework we’ll use to walk through a case study challenge:

  1. Why are we doing this?
  2. Should we do this?
  3. What should the goal be?
  4. How to make decisions?
