10 Tips on how to be an awesome product manager. 5: Write and refine your product documents

You understood the evolution of your product? You informed yourself using different internal sources (departments of your companies such as sales, customer care, support, development, etc.) and external sources (customers, partners, consultants, blogs, newsgroups, forums, product reviews, etc.) to gain information? Congratulations – you now have the necessary understanding of your product, company and customers to make the right decisions. Now, refine your product documents. Define where changes need to be made. Think about what could be improved to make your documents more informative and appealing. Enhance in-life documentation. Also, prepare different documents for different audiences. For users of your product who are beginners and who are not familiar yet with your product, you need very comprehensible documentation, ideally with graphics on how to use the product. Maybe you also want to provide easy step-by-step instructions in your manuals. For users with a high level of know-how and experience, you might want to include more in-depth information to get out even more of your product.
