Technology Product Manager has ultimate responsibility for the product. A technology product manager’s responsibilities include owning the product’s strategy, developing and maintaining the product roadmap, and conveying the roadmap to the development team to ensure they build the product according to plan.

 

Technology Product Manager is responsible to translate business strategy into product strategy. With a strategy in hand, the technology product manager will then communicate it to the development team, work with them to build a plan to execute on this strategy and oversee the product’s progress throughout the development phase.

Key Responsibilities: 

Prioritization and roadmap process: 

Explaining why you’re prioritizing one feature or theme over another in a release; why you’ve chosen to focus more on one goal versus another goal. Get the relevant constituencies - sales, marketing, engineering, key stakeholders on board and be clear and open with them about why and how you are making decisions.

Be able to say “no” with explanation: 

There will be plenty of times when an executive will ask for a new feature his gut tells him will be great… when an engineer will suggest tabling the development of a feature set to save time on the next sprint… and when a sales rep will ask (even beg) you to add a specific tool to the next release because a prospect has promised to buy if it’s included.The key will be in your ability to articulate why you cannot accommodate the request. The more strategic and backed by evidence, the more convince to understand when you need to say no.

Balancing the needs of customers and stakeholders:

Know how to set priorities or how to weigh various factors in developing roadmap.Challenge will always be the management of resource constraints. You will always need to prioritize, and continually weigh the competing factors of your objectives for your products, limited resources and demands from various stakeholders.

Evidence-based decision-making: 

The most effective ways to answer why is with evidence. It’s much more compelling than your opinion or anyone else’s. Use user data, customer feedback, and metrics to inform how best to build your product roadmap. Use analytics to convince key stakeholders.
