BACKGROUND TO THE AWARD
Tolapgorni Founder Magnus Billgren read the Swedish child book "Strumpmannen" (by Dan Höjer) for his 5 year old. Strumpmannen - or the Sockman - to translate it into english is a story about a superhero of small everyday problems. Mangus saw many similarities between Strumpmanen and a Product Manager - solving "small" problems on an every day basis. Therefore we have initiated the Golden Sock Award to provide recognition for the achievements of the everyday product manager heroes.
Nominate a Product Manager whom you think have done excellent work in the field of Product Management, and have taken significant everyday initiatives or actions leading to success for a high tech B2B product offering. Perhaps someone from your team?
