Why Study Product Management?

Strategic product management plays an essential role in the vast majority of business settings.  Roughly defined, product management is a structured process that encompasses the planning, production, introduction and optimisation of one or more products. To succeed in product management, a detailed understanding of each stage of the product life cycle is mandatory. As is the confidence to make importance decisions about products, which represent the businesses behind them. Products can be physical commodities, or virtual assets like mobile apps and software. Irrespective of the nature of the product, every stage of its research, development and introduction should be handled with the same care and attention. When products fail, the businesses behind them can suffer costly financial and reputational damage. For the product manager, the challenge lies in ensuring failure simply isn’t an option.
