Career paths for product folks are murky, job responsibilities are unbounded, and most of us got our first product management jobs accidentally or through internal transfers. Opportunities for advancement can be just as unclear. If you're already a product manager, where do you go next?  

We'll break down the problem a bit: 
* What do product leader do, as distinct from (individual contributor) product managers? 
* Ways to signal interest and demonstrate product leader skills 
* "Should I want that?"
