Product Manager's Drafting Table
Structured tools to keep track of your product management processes

Ross Chehayeb
This tool gives product managers structured tools to keep track of their own product management processes. Whether it's talking to customers, keeping track of ideas, prioritizing, or deciding what you should do next, this doc can help.

This doc is best used at the individual scrum team level or for a single project, where the Product Manager is the owner of the doc, but developers and designers have access to see how projects are shaping up.

Hope this can be a useful tool for you!
