Software Tools for Product Managers

Carrie Lowther from Hitwise and Jen Leibhart ran a great session at ProductCamp Melbourne on Saturday the 3rd of July. They discussed good software tools that can help Product Managers do their job more effectively and efficiently.

For those that didn’t attend ProductCamp Melbourne and for those that didn’t get a chance to take notes during the session here’s a list of tools the group came up with.
