Sanjay Chaudhary  |  Argues in support of  "Product Management"  |  5 years ago
project management is a critical sub-set of product management what can you project manage when there is no outcome (i.e. product / service)
BEENA AGARWAL  |  Argues in support of  "Project Mangement"  |  5 years ago
The responsibility of the project manager is also got prime importance.Right from feasibility of the project,fund aquirement,distribution of fund,procurement of raw material,to check up market and market demand,supply and depatch to the consumer...

When I was working in Raymond's limited i use to give top priority to process management.. What i believe is for a successful product to make the process has to be in line and well verse to the requirement of the product specification..i think maturity comes with experience and my experience say that flexibility should be there in the process..Todays world is highly competitive and getting customer for your product is not very easy..again getting order in bulk is a distant dream.so the concept should not be here of mass production rather than it should of batch production. But i not saying that ignore product management, Because todays customer require every day a new product if you cannot ...

Interesting. But I would say Process Management comes above Product & Product Management. If you agree with on the view that an organization will be successful if it is Process-Focused, then every task, product or project that the organization...

If you want to be a bad product manager, confuse product management with project management . The words are so close because the two concepts are so similar. Product managers should manage projects since they need to ensure that the projects get done. They re both management roles (right?) so the skills and experience are virtually the same. Project managers just get in the way and try to take control of the project away from the product manager.

It is interesting. But I always thought that project management was much more than product (it included human aspects as well). Or are we thinking robot-like?
Bellala Gopinatha Rao  |  Commented  |  6 years ago
In delivarables (as per ISO) services, project is also a product.

I recently finished a series of articles on being a Great Product Manager. I want to switch gears a bit and spend some time talking about the function of Product Management in software companies. As we know, product managers and product management are not isolated to software companies, but the role of product management in software companies is different from the role of product (or brand) management in other domains, such as the financial sector or Consumer Packaged Goods ( CPG ) firms. For example: How many new features does a release of a new shampoo have? How much time does the brand manager spend with the chemists working on that new shampoo formulation during the release cycle ? How ...

Most software companies, and technology companies in general, don't understand product management. The result is wasted time, money and creativity. But the companies that know how to harness the talents of skilled product managers reap big rewards, namely successful products, higher revenues, motivated employees and, last but not least, smiling CEOs. Is it easy to get your product-management act together? The answer is no, but Steve Johnson can tell us how to do it. Johnson is an instructor at Pragmatic Marketing, a product-marketing training company in Scottsdale, Ariz., and also webmaster of productmarketing.com, a Web site housing a compendium of free information for technology product ma...

Six Habits of Merely Effective Negotiators The Idea High stakes. Intense pressure. Careless mistakes. These can turn your key negotiations into disasters. Even seasoned negotiators bungle deals, leaving money on the table and damaging working relationships. Why? During negotiations, six common mistakes can distract you from your real purpose: getting the other guy to choose what you want—for his own reasons. Avoid negotiation pitfalls by mastering the art of letting the other guy have your way— everyone will win. The Idea in Practice Negotiation Mistakes Neglecting the Other Side's Problem If you don't understand the deal from the other side's perspective, you can't solve his problem or yours. Example: A technology company that created a cheap, accurate way of detecting gas-tank leaks couldn't sell its product. Why? EPA regulations permitted leaks of up to 1,500 gallons, while this new technology detected 8-ounce leaks. Fearing the device would spawn regulatory trouble, potential...

  An old man, staying in a small south Indian town came to visit his son in Bombay recently. The son in his early thirties is a successful businessman living with his wife and son. The father, having spent most of his life at his birthplace, hardly understands a splatter of Hindi or English, forget Marathi. But he doesn't care. 'I have come here to spend a few days with my son and his family. I don't have to go out and socialize with the city people,' he said. But the son is very excited about his father's rare visit to Bombay. He wants to make the best of it. He and his wife want to show him around the city. And yes, the son enjoys those evening hours too, when  he and his father go out and sit in a good bar, sipping their favorite  drink. Last week he was in a very good mood. 'Let's go to a five star hotel's bar tonight,' he told his father. It was a beautiful evening. Talking about everything under the sun they had a few drinks. As usual they were offered some salad, peanuts,...

Like all other scenarios on the Indian horizon, the Indian judiciary is not a thing to be proud of. When the other two organs of the Government, the Legislature, and the Executive are rotten to the very core, how can the third organ the Judiciary be any better? The scene of the Indian judiciary is very bleak, unhappy, and unholy. Just like the other two organs the Indian Judiciary is also at the lowest ebb of functioning and efficiency.  In these days of the free press, we often get the chance of reading in different publications of national importance and others about the rot seeping into the Lower Courts and Higher Courts, and now eyeing the Supreme Court.  It is interesting to note how, the Supreme Court is often heard passing strictures against the Legislature and the Executive, but it is sad to note that the organ that is trying to infuse good health and new blood in other organisations, is, itself rotting.   When we read in the daily papers that three crore and odd law suits...
