Product Manager Take Home Assignment Example by Lewis Lin


There’s a new trend in product management interviews: the take home assignment.

Take home assignments can vary in their format. They can either be:

  • Written tests that revolve around hypothetical questions

  • Written tests that revolve around case questions

  • Written tests that revolve around behavioral questions

As you can note from the repetition, take home assignments are simply derivatives of PM question categories that you’re already familiar with:

  • Hypothetical questions

  • Case questions

  • Behavioral questions

Simply apply the same frameworks and tips on solving behavioral, case, and hypothetical questions from Decode and Conquer and complete the take home assignment.

PS I’ve got more tips about take home assignments in my book, Secrets of the Product Manager Interview.
