project management is a critical sub-set of product management what can you project manage when there is no outcome (i.e. product / service)

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  |  5 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...

Everybody knows the power of hope and belief and the people very frequently refer these words.  We see and listen two categories of people if we keep the stagnated apart. Everybody wants to achieve something in life. One category of people aim high or very high, but, they will not take risk in the course and they want everything to be certain. The second category of people aim high and very high and at the same time they will take risk, travel in an unexplored path and believe that the better things can happen to them though in general they appear to be uncertain.   I want to re-emphasize that the people who fear to take risk, may not achieve high positions. But, the people who take risk tend to achieve greater positions in life. Traveling in risky path means traveling in life with “hope and belief”.   Many have proved the power of hope and belief and the great American President Barrack Obama very frequently refers to the power of hope and belief with his “yes, we can” mantra....

     I have been listening the news about making "Right to Education to children" as fundamental right by bringing suitable changes to Constitution of India. To be frank, I don't understand as to what is the use of bringing a law like "Right to Education" with so much media hype. I have great respect for Sri Kapil Cibal a he is a great lawyer and a very knowledgeable person. But, I am not able to understand as to the use of spending so much time on passing law dealing with "Right to Education".      Part-III of Constitution of India deal with the Fundamental Rights. The entire concept has become very complicated to understand and if anyone clarifies me the scope of Part-III of constitution of India now, I would be very very grateful. As I understand, Fundamental Right is nothing but a right secured by state and if the state fails to secure a Fundamental Right, then, the citizens can approach the Constitutional Court either under Article 226 of Constitution of India or under Article...
