Episode Info:


In large companies, product management is an important part of the marketing function, a bridge to R&D and many other functions. Smaller companies can also benefit from having an individual who owns the product roadmap and strategy. Because responsibilities vary, you may not be clear about what a product manager does, even if you know one.

So let's clear that up.

Jill Roughan explains:

  • How a product manager is different from a project manager

  • At what point in its evolution a small biotech, for example, should consider hiring a product manager

  • What it means to have a product strategy and vision

  • What 3 skills to look for when hiring a product manager

I learned that being a product manager is a great training ground for future CEOs because of the need to  develop strategy and handle changing situations.
