without learning to code
The first rule of Product Management states: “Keep your roadmap clear and clean”. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t work your way around the rule. It’s been a while since our last hack, so we hope this is worth your while.
3 things to look for
This post is not about how great our online room booking system is. Nor is it about how subpar others are. Tooting our own horn is not something we do, and we dislike brands that attack other brands.

Some of the best choices made come out of avoiding groupthink. Having multiple people debate the same problem poses several advantages: a greater number of solutions, different points of view to underline their faults. But you need rigour.
