What does Shreyas Doshi tell us about preventing problems and mistakes in product management?

Shreyas puts forward the idea that, despite their best efforts, complex organizations "tend to incentivize problem creation more than problem prevention", something he calls the "preventable problem paradox".

And while reviews, round-ups, and retrospectives are great at improving future behavior, they still require problems to occur in the first place to learn from them.

Shreyas is also a firm believer in using pre-mortems, early in the project lifecycle, as a way of mapping out potential problems that may occur longer down the line. And, as an activity to come up with creative solutions to these issues.
