Changing Product Management Process

Hi Amir,

What are the best ways to get a (stubborn) product management group to think more agile and stop trying to prepare 100+ page requirements docs before my engineering team even knows there is a project going on?

Thanks!

First and foremost, stop thinking of them as stubborn. They have their reasons for doing what they are doing, and respecting that will be an important step to bridge the gap.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
