For build stage products, Lucey helped us narrow down the field. For the 2020 Product Awards, we saw more than 2,000 nominations! Can you believe it?!

What does it mean to be a Build stage product?

For the Build stage products, there are four categories. They are:

  • Execute Ideas: assess how you’re doing against your plan, decide whether to make adjustments, communicate, and document the new plan.
  • Create it Yourself: These days engineers aren’t the only builders, tools where PMs are implementing part of the experience themselves.
  • Build Teams: sourcing, connecting, assessing, closing and growing your team.
  • Establish Culture: establishing norms and process and ensuring your team has all the tools and knowledge to succeed in your organization.

Here are the 2020 Product Awards Build Stage finalists.

Special Thanks

We want to take a moment to thank Heap and Tugboat Logic who are sponsors for the 2020 Product Awards. The ability to reward honor these products helps to show product managers the world over what the best products are that give them superpowers at each stage of the product lifecycle. We appreciate their participation in this endeavor.

Make a Difference

We’re selected a few charities to honor at this year’s Awards. They are charities that represent some of the products that matter the most: food, water, and shelter. We’ll be making a donation to each charity, as well as matching, dollar-for-dollar, every dollar raised between now and the Product Awards. Those charities are charity: water, Project Open Hand, and Miracle Messages. You can click here to donate to one or all of them and help make a difference. You can also share that post on your social channels to help spread the word!
