Give me an example of when you failed to convince your manager of something? | PM interview questions

Question’s Purpose
The PM job has tons of push and pulls from every direction, including from your manager. They want to know how strong and independent you are, but they also want to know if you’re a team player.

How to Answer
Your best answer follows the “Have a Backbone; Disagree and Commit.” management philosophy at Amazon. They want to see that you are strong enough to disagree with your manager, but also willing to commit wholeheartedly to their decision.

Focus your answer on what you and your manager disagreed over, what arguments you used to convince your manager, why the arguments didn’t work, and how you committed to the direction your manager wanted you to go in. Don’t make the story about how right you were and how stupid your manager was. That just makes you and your manager look bad.
