Product Management Trends
The Product Owner belongs to the Product Management profession. In fact, Product Owner is a role and most of the time their title will be Product Manager. Here are a few trends from the Product Management industry.
“There is a growing demand for product management talent because there are so many digital companies that have never existed before”
As per an article on AC Lion, Industries adopting and leveraging new technologies such as Retail / Direct to Consumer, Automotive, Manufacturing, Financial Services, and Healthcare, have created a demand for innovative product managers who bring both industry experience as well as an understanding of new technologies; how their products will best be marketed, sold and experienced by their end-users and customers.
“The role of the product manager is expanding due to the growing importance of data in decision making, an increased customer and design focus, and the evolution of software-development methodologies.”
As per the report from McKinsey, over the next three to five years, we see the product-management role continuing to evolve toward a deeper focus on data (without losing empathy for users) and a greater influence on nonproduct decisions. We anticipate that most modern product managers will spend at least 30 percent of their time on external activities like engaging with customers and the partner ecosystem. Such engagement will not be limited to consumer products—as the consumerization of IT continues, B2B product managers will directly connect with end users rather than extracting feedback through multiple layers of sales and intermediaries
“As many sectors get re-shaped by production innovation, India’s IT services firms are coming to terms with the fact that “product” is becoming the imperative piece in the business agenda of their customers”
As per this article on Tech Republic, many IT services firms setting out to develop products and platforms are dealing with the shortage in their own ways. Some are actively making product company acquisitions. Others are creating separate entities to create products and build intellectual property — Infosys subsidiary EdgeVerve Systems, which is modeled after product startups and is employing dozens of product managers, is an example. India has only 20K Product Managers compared to 1.8 million in the US. The numbers and skill levels of product managers are nowhere near even smaller countries like Russia and Israel. So there is a huge demand for skilled Product Managers.
“Global MNCs announcing investment plans in India, start-ups raising millions of dollars through angel investors, billion-dollar valuations, a TV series on entrepreneurship — this is what today’s Young India is talking about. After all these years, it seems, at least for now, Cricket and Bollywood have taken a backseat…”
This article on Careerizma states “Digital India” and “Make in India” are the new visions set by the biggest entrepreneur in a country of over a billion people. This vision along with regulations to ease business in India has created a huge sea of opportunities for entrepreneurs to start their own gigs across various industries.
