Recently, I faced 2 interview questions as below:

Q1) Explain to us how you will present information about a product to the user?

Q2) What project management approach would you take and why?

Now, I couldn't manage to impress the interviewer with my answer as he was looking for a more scenario-based answer and not just a definition of Agile and Waterfall.

Can someone give me an answer to the above 2 questions with an example too like a situation or something?

I will really appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on the above 2 questions.

    This question misses a lot of information: What role do you have (did you apply for), who is 'us' (what target audience), what options are there to present (verbally, documentation?), how much time do you have? How large is "a product" (and, as nvogel already commented: what kind of product)? - and if you cannot give those answers, you should have asked them during the interview.

  • @JanDoggen Sorry to miss out on the info. I have applied for the Software developer position and yeah it's about software development products. So basically they have an HRM solution which they want to the users Dec 10 '20 at 15:51
  • As the question stands, it's an hypothetical situation that lacks a lot of context to be meaningful valid within the domain of this community. Worth checking off-topic on what to avoid asking.

You didn't say what kind of product. Assuming you mean software development:

  1. Multiple ways: user stories; product demos; regular face-to-face collaboration with the development team; wiki and other collab tools shared between the development team and end users.

  2. Cross-functional team(s) working in an adaptive way using managed flow (e.g. Kanban) and/or iterative (Scrum). Helps ensure the development effort is responsive to changing priorities and maximises the opportunities for collaboration and creative problem solving.

  • Actually, it was presenting information to the client to whom we are trying to sell a solution and sorry I didn't understand your point 1 talking about user stories. What role does user stories will play and point 2 as well? Dec 10 '20 at 15:57

Depends on the Product (is it something professional or not); on the User, their targets and their readiness to this Product, on time for presentation - at least on these, but there are more parameters.

More detailed information required to be prepared for the User and to explain something to them.

Regarding the Product and User: Project manager may explain the Product naming its idea, and from the idea, its top use cases and vector of the Product's development (if it's clear and can be shared), so a User can understand where and how they can use/apply it in their work/leisure time. For enterprise systems/components it may not be suitable - the User can already know the scenarios where to apply the system, so only the killer features are needed to be explained to them (details they'll know from the guide).
