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)

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...

Please spare a couple of minutes here for the sake of our country INDIA U Can make a huge difference to the Indian Economy, Small example Before 5 months      1 CAN $ = IND Rs 32 After 5 months         1 CAN $ = IND Rs 42 Do you think Canadian Economy is booming? No, but Indian Economy is Going Down. Our Economy is in ours hand INDIAN economy is in a crisis. Our country like many other ASIAN countries is undergoing a severe economic crunch. Many INDIAN industries are closing down. The INDIAN economy is in a crisis and if we do not take proper steps to control those, we will be in a critical situation. More than 30000 crore rupees of foreign exchange are being siphoned out of our country on products such as cosmetics, snacks, tea, beverages...etc which are grown, produced and consumed here. A cold drink that costs only 70/80 paisa to produce is sold for NINE rupees, and a major chunk of profits from these are sent abroad. This is a serious drain on INDIAN economy. "COCA COLA "and"...

Hi Friends, I am sharing with the reviews of IBM on work culture, growth prospects salary, done by their employees. Please share your views. A Project Manager wrote: What I like about IBM: "IBM offers a very flexible working environment. In most cases, no one will ask you what time you come or go from office. Neither the logs of the swipe card will be analyzed to take some action against you in normal circumstances. In special circumstances, the company can even allow you to work from home. No blocking of internet or phones . All in all, you are "not" working in a jail. It has a wealth of knowledge..... " What I don't like about IBM: "Sometimes you feel that there are too many processes to follow. The company is so huge that it is a challenge to make people aware of existing processes. I have often seen it happening that sometimes small groups within IBM try to develop their own processes, often unaware that such a best practice already exists and can be leveraged. Ofcourses, Lou...
