Make yourself indispensable is a common piece of advice giving to those who are just starting out in their careers or trying to carve out a niche for themselves. You’d think that being a subject matter expert is the fastest way to being indispensable, but our poll this week suggests otherwise. We asked which makes a stronger PM: a subject matter expert or one who relies on others?
80% of respondents thought that she who relies on others is more likely to succeed, and both debaters lean in that direction also. Not convinced? Check out our pieces on the full stack PM, T-shaped people, and of course, our Anatomy of a Product Manager. Still think that a subject matter expert is better set for success? tell us in comments or write a piece about why!
