I’d love to hear yours and why. If we get to ten replies, I’ll share mine.

In enterprise SaaS, building exactly what your customer asks for is a decent way to land your first large contracts. You’re buying credibility in your segment (“get the logo”), gain access to domain expertise and learn how to deliver at scale.

Solid! 

Here’s mine: Not all product managers need to “think big” all the time. 

To elaborate a bit further: there are some industries that are not only behind on technology, they may even have an irrational fear of jumping too far into the “latest and greatest” tech trends. Sometimes the largest game changer is going to be an introduction to technology that isn’t “new” or “innovative” from the perspective of the tech industry at large - but a significant enhancement to the industry/industries that your product sits in at the time.
