Our New Product Manager Loves People and Problems: Meet Josh Frank
Josh Frank has become an integral player on our team, working to improve processes to deliver the best products we possibly can. A solid product manager can break down a problem into a well-thought-out, behavior-driven story so that everyone is clear on the work we’re doing. And that’s exactly the talent that Josh brings to Revelry and to our clients. Josh helps us communicate our priorities and products with his truly astounding gifts in this area.
People, process, Pixel, and Pebble. It seems like that’s what Josh is all about. It’s been fun getting to know Josh and I think you should too.
People are amazing. It’s true. But how do you sharpen your communication style so that you can move problems into solutions?
I’ll ask you about CrossFit anytime. What other things have you been able to deep-dive into, and do and build and make?
What about grown-up Josh? What mobile device are you using? What does your home screen look like?
I’m a Google person through-and-through. I have the Pixel XL (ask me sometime the circumstances under which I had to purchase my Pixel; it’s related to the Revelry holiday party).
On my home screen I have almost everything organized into folders: Photos, Work, Messaging, Notes, Calendars, Reading, Shopping, Fitness, Transit, Video, Audio, Social. A few apps stand alone outside of folders: Slack, Chrome, and Weather; then random apps that are sometimes installed for work/testing purposes. I use Pocket Casts for podcasts, and that’s a most-used widget on my home screen. And a Weather shortcut; though lately, I’ve taken to shouting out to my Google Home “Hey Google, what’s the weather today?”.
“Hey Google” sounds like quite a shortcut. What other productivity hacks do you have for us, being such an efficient product manager?
You’re pretty connected, digitally, Josh. Can you name a non-digital product you can’t live without?
