When I was 15 years old, I became a bit obsessed with Jones Soda. If you are not familiar, it is a quirky beverage company that offers unique drink flavors in a cool glass bottle. But what really captivated me were the labels, which featured photos sent in by real-life customers. Though I could not articulate why at the time, I was inspired. Read more…

“Do you love your job?” This question may elicit enthusiastic nods from some and groans from others. I feel very fortunate to say that I am with the nodders. This is because Aha! is a unique place to work — people here love the work they do and the people they work with. Read more…

Just Launched! — New Aha! Integration With Asana

Product management vs. project management. It gets especially confusing when people start using acronyms. And although you are the PM, your company may have other PMs too — dedicated project management teams and maybe even program managers assigned to each product. Often these project-focused teams do not have access to Aha! and manage their work in other tools. Well, if your organization uses Asana for project management, we have good news. Read more…

Susie Boyer Why I Joined Aha!

When I turned 30, I made it a goal to summit the highest point of the 48 contiguous U.S. states within the next 10 years. I celebrated achieving that goal (plus one) at the highest point in Hawaii, Mauna Kea, on my 40th birthday. As I write this, I am packing for a trip to Alaska. And while I do not plan to attempt Denali, I will feel an extra sense of accomplishment when I can say I have been to all 50 states. Read more…

This was a number of years ago, before I joined Aha! The panel smiled knowingly before replying that those jobs simply do not exist — not everybody gets to work with customers.

Daniel Davis Aha!

It started with hand-drawn comic books. Most starred my dogs, but the occasional space pirate made an appearance. Although I loved writing and drawing as a kid, as I got older, I found my aptitude for math pulling me towards the technical and pushing me further from the creative path. So in college, I pursued computer science — at first. Read more…

Just Launched! — 5 Strategic Planning Models Every Product Manager Needs

“So… what is our strategy?” I was once asked this at a quarterly executive review meeting. Twenty different answers raced through my head. The product strategy or the business strategy? Our strategy for this year or longer term? Of course, we were thinking strategically and had big plans. But the truth is that, considering someone had to ask that question, we really did not have a strategy at all.

Todd Meyer Aha

For as long as I can remember, three questions have guided how I look at most things in the world. How does this work? Why do we do it this way? Could we do it better? As a kid, I spent hours taking apart electronics (small radios, flashlights, whatever could be disassembled with a screwdriver and determination) to learn how they worked, why they worked that way, and to see if my tinkering could make them better.
