    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show the same passion in your products as your developers do.
    Invest in the future of your products or make the hard decisions to discontinue them.
    Forcing products to limp along for years without any innovation creates a dead-end environment.
    Invest in the skill growth of your employees.
    Support meaningful adoption of new technologies into your product lines rather than doing the minimum effort.
    Have ownership and vision for the future of every product in the portfolio rather than putting it all on developers to create a bucket of ideas and then trimming until the result adds very little in customer value.
    Focus on long term strength rather than crippling product teams and demoralizing employees to artificially bolster today's stock price.
