provide the deep product expertise needed to lead the organization and make
strategic product decisions. You will need to analyse market and competitive
conditions, laying out a product vision that is differentiated and delivers
unique value based on customer demands. The role spans many activities from
strategic to tactical and provides important cross-functional leadership — most
notably between engineering, marketing, sales, and support teams.
The product manager is
the person responsible for defining the why, when, and what of the product that
the engineering team builds. This means they lead cross-functional teams from a
product's conception all the way through to its launch.
Here are the core
aspects of product leadership that all product managers will be responsible for:
The product manager is
responsible for setting a product vision and strategy. Their job is to clearly
articulate the business value to the engineering team, so they understand the
intent behind the new product or product release. The product manager owns the
roadmap and must prioritize building what matters most to achieve the strategic
goals and initiatives behind the product.
Product managers must
plan what their teams will deliver and the timeline for implementation. This
holds true no matter which development methodology the engineering team uses.
The product manager is responsible for defining the release process and
coordinating all of the activities required to bring the product to market.
This involves bridging gaps between different functions within the company and
aligning all the teams involved — namely marketing, sales, and customer
support. Responsibilities also include managing dependencies in and across
releases to complete release phases and milestones.
wants better ideas — but it is tough to manage and prioritize them. Product
managers own the creative process of generating, developing, and curating new
ideas. They determine which ideas should be promoted into features to push the
product strategy forward — namely those that will achieve key objectives for
the product line and business. To this end, they also ensure that feedback and
requests are seamlessly integrated into their product planning and development
processes. Product managers then communicate the status of ideas back to the
customers, partners, and internal team members who submitted them.
The product manager
prioritizes features by ranking them against the strategic goals and
initiatives. This requires making difficult trade-off decisions based on the
value that new features will deliver to customers and to the business. The
product manager is also responsible for defining the requirements for each
feature and the desired user experience. Product managers work closely with
engineering on the technical specifications and ensure that teams have all of
the information they need to deliver a complete product to market. When done right, you
will have the best job on Earth.
