A programming technique that might be useful for product practitioners
It looks like this:
Programmers usually write pseudocode before they write the actual code. They write in a plain language to sketch out their logic on how the algorithm might work. We can borrow this can concept and apply it in our work as product practitioners.
I find myself thinking about the business process a lot. For example, let’s say we need to hold a contest for YouTube every month, I will need to think quickly what are some of the big steps:
Decide what the theme of the contest
— Billy must decide what theme based on trending data
— We lock the theme in the first week of the month
Prepare the landing page
— Should embed the submission form
— We’ll prepare an entry point in the app
— We’ll email active users
Wait for the submission
Curate the submission
— Use machine learning model to eliminate bad submission
You get the idea. It’s useful to think in this way before I go into creating detailed flow or something more advanced.
