The best product managers with whom I have worked are the ones with the process skills needed to create successful products using their organization’s resources. These individuals are not necessarily the content experts; instead they are able to use the institutional expertise to create success.
The processes important to product management are:
- Market Research
- Business & Financial Analysis
- Project Management
If you were to rank your performance in each of these areas, in which of these processes are you most effective and which the lease effective? “Know thyself” is an age-old admonition that is as true today as ever.
