I’ve just received my copy of Naked Conversations, but I am now thinking of simply returning it for a refund.
Shel Israel, co-author, just announced that maybe CEOs shouldn’t be let near a blog. He claims they simply don’t have what it takes, are not nearly as passionate about a company’s products and besides, they should be out playing golf.
What a load of junk! CEOs are exactly the type of person I want to hear from via a blog. While product managers are passionate about their product, they’re often blinkered to the task at hand. They are only able to see the world thru the lense of their own departmental focus. CEOs on the other hand, are able to see the bigger picture, understand the industry and share thoughts at a higher level.
