Amazon famously has a culture of writing things down. Writing is hard, and good writing is harder. So why do we write press releases as the first step of a new product? Why do we write six-page narratives when we could just make a slide deck? Why does storytelling matter in a business document? And how much does grammar really matter?

The purpose of this talk is to convince you that good writing is an essential tool for you as a Product Manager. By honing this skill you can build the product your customers want, think clearly about complicated problems, and make data-driven decisions that will scale with your business.

Main takeaways:
- Work backwards from what your customers care about.
- Writing a narrative is hard, but it's almost always worth it.
- Tenets can help you make hard decisions at scale.
