We’ve collected 16 of the most agile product management blogs out there and rolled them into one. Some are from the product motherland: San Francisco; others are from product people roaming the planet, ideating, creating, and soul searching. All of them are fantastic, regardless.
The idea behind all of this?

Our favorite product management blogs#
The Amplitude Blog#
The Amplitude blog is the birth child of, you guessed it, Amplitude—the product analytics tool. The product management blog comes in four sections:
Best Practices: Your go-to for every how-to you’ll ever need. From customer value chains to conversion analytics. If you’re looking to expand your knowledge of product marketing, this is your first stop.
Perspectives: A wealth of guest blogs authored by other product leaders. Amplitude manages to feature others regularly, and there are usually a few interesting points of view in this section.
Inspiration: We forgive the Amplitude plugs in this section. Inspiration features a wealth of brands and Amplitude customers to inspire your product journey: Peloton, Shopify, and Adobe, to name a few.
Inside Amplitude: If the first three sections inspired you enough to learn more about the Amplitude product, you’ll end up here. We don’t have a referral code, but if you’ve now discovered a tool that you love—you’re welcome.
Authored by product discovery coach Teresa Torres who has worked with the likes of CarMax, Snagajob, Spotify, and Tesco. Torres’ product management blog angles toward product leaders, UX advocates, and startup founders building game-changing digital products.
One of the best product management blogs out there, Product Talk hosts a wealth of interesting content. It offers courses, workshops, coaching, interviews, and extra reading you can buy on Amazon.
In all, Torres’ content is actionable and easy to digest—and we all know how important that is when snacking, ahem… reading.

Our personal favorite, you ask? Well, since you twisted our arm… The weekly walks with Casey Renner are fantastic snippets of content you can dive into regularly. Each week Renner goes on (virtual) walks with various tech leaders around the world.
Plus, if you’re feeling like giving your eyes a break in the morning, there’s a podcast featuring some of the industry’s best—thanks, Blake Bartlett.
Industry prides itself on being the top newsletter for product people—that’s us! They’re constantly sharing product resources and product interviews. They also host a product conference and offer access to a budding slack community of product people.
They currently host 552, some outsourced, some not, product tips, and have some pretty nifty eBooks on product manager tactics. Be our guest—or theirs, in this case.
Department of Product#
The Department of Product defines itself as a “global educational institution” for product managers, their teams, and tech professionals. They offer training programs and bespoke services to those looking for it, but the blog is what we’re here to discuss today.
The product manager blog is not for newbies. It’s in-depth, specialized, and can be pretty dense at times. However, if you’re looking for specifics, this is your place to be. The blogs are of great quality, accompanied by visuals that support examples, and written by experts. It’s like going to product school, but for free.
More? More, you say? Well, if the above isn’t enough for you, DoP also offers a selection of free resources: product launch roadmaps, product strategy, product models, and product guides.
Mind the Product#
Witty, insightful, and charming. No, this isn’t a dating profile for product people, well—there’s a product in itself. But, Mind the Product is all of the above, and more. There’s a wealth of videos, podcasts, book reccos, and blogs.
For all of the content they offer, there’s a catch—you’ll encounter a lot of gated content with this blog. Unless you’re willing to pay the membership fee, you’ll find yourself limited to what you can learn. Don’t stop there, though. If you’re looking to bring some life to your Twitter timeline, the @MindtheProduct Twitter account is a must-follow.

Remains of the Day#
Eugene Wei should sound familiar to you for two reasons:
- You’re an avid product fan and follow some of the most influential people in the business.
- You’re an avid Chameleon fan and read our blog post on product leaders.
We prefer to think of you as the latter, but we’re not opposed to option one either. Disclosure: Eugene Wei’s blog is not all product. There’s a pinch of technology, pop culture, and sports, thrown in for extra flavor. One thing we can say is that it’s all written from a product person’s mindset, and the writing is fab.
The pieces that Wei writes on the product world are insightful, backed up with data, and packed with an opinion that will leave you smiling and nodding. If you’re looking for some light reading but want to stay relevant, then Wei is your man.
