Overview

The job of a product manager is made even more difficult by the simple fact that it really does not come with any clear instructions on how to do it correctly. As product managers we are constantly searching for ways to become better.

What You'll Find Inside:

  • 9 WAYS TO TO BECOME AN INFORMATION PRODUCT MANAGER
  • WHY PRODUCT MANAGERS NEED TO KNOW THAT COST PLUS PRICING IS WRONG, WRONG, WRONG
  • WHAT IS A "PRODUCT VISION"?
  • WEB 2.0 PRODUCT MANAGEMENT: IT'S ALL ABOUT PARTICIPATION

One of the things that every product manager quickly realizes is that their career success is very closely tied to the financial success of their product. It is the job of the product manager to make sure that his or her product is meeting the needs of their customer.

One of the most challenging aspects of creating a product that meets a customer's needs is to decide on what the right price to charge is. The goal is to charge as much as you can without exceeding what your customer's perception of the value of your product is. There are a lot of wrong ways to do this and just a few correct ways.

One of the most important things that a product manager can do is to learn from the actions of other product managers. Not all product management programs succeed. We need to teach ourselves to keep our eyes open and watch and learn from both the successes and failures of other product managers.

As though being a product manager was not hard enough, we also don't control the world in which we live. This means that we need to create plans to deal with events like product name changes, recessions, and irrational customers.

This book has been written to provide you with the insights that you are going to need in order to develop your product management skills. We'll be talking about what you need to take into consideration when you are creating a price for your product, how to start your year off on the right foot, and how to create a vision for your product.

Meet the Author

Managing a product is not just a business, it's a science. Nobody knows more about the science of product management than Dr. Jim Anderson.

As Dr. Anderson says "I don't embrace excuses from product managers about why their products are not successful, I embrace solutions."

Over the last 25 years, Dr. Anderson has transformed failing products worldwide. Dr. Anderson will turn these money pits into money makers. Welcome to the premier blog for learning how to develop, launch, and manage wildly successful products.

Dr. Jim Anderson is known as the "Billion Dollar Product Manager" because the products that he's manged have produced over US$1B in revenue. In reaching this goal, he has truly been there / done that. He has applied his knowledge of the science of product management to individual products at small start-ups as well as entire products lines for some of the world's companies.

The same successful product management science techniques can be made to work in both environments. In over 25 years of managing products and solutions, Dr. Anderson has implemented best practices for managing products at some of the world's largest firms: Boeing, Siemens, Alcatel, and Verizon.

Coupled with his practical, real-world experience he's created a proven strategy for streamlining the development of products. Dr. Anderson realizes that for a product to be successful, it takes an entire company working together, not different departments working separately. Making this happen is the real challenge that Product Managers face.
