In the last blog entry , we looked at the first step to successful Digital Product Management (DPM), organizing your investments and products in a way that makes sense for your business. Once you have that foundation in place you need to begin building an integrated picture – to show how each of those products is delivering significant returns, and the entire company is marching together towards achieving its long-term vision. This is the process of defining the strategic roadmap for your organization and for each of the products within it. With management based around digital products, this roadmapping exercise becomes more important than ever. Each product ...

One of the biggest problems with investing in projects is that often those projects don’t reflect how your business actually operates. In fact, they are the exact opposite. Projects are designed as temporary pieces of work, which when completed, see the project team dispersed. The business outcomes are left to a completely separate team to operationalize, leverage and secure the benefits. And that’s neither effective nor efficient. With digital products, on the other hand, there’s recognition that the business is investing in a sustained asset, one that must be maintained, enhanced and transformed. Different products will experience that lifecycle on ...

Coming off my soapbox about Agile from my last post, I do believe that the concept of agility leads to better products. There's one significant enabler, however, that is required in order to make this happen: Your developers (and development teams) need to be able to build things quickly and make changes quickly. There are a number of routine impediments to his enabler that many products have: Technical debt from older features/code Poor documentation Inflexible platform or technology Lack of experience due to turnover In an ideal world, a product manager, product owner, and development team would work iteratively day-by-day (or at most ...

OK. At this point, we've laid out some basic product management definitions, talked about some important product management skills, and highlighted a few key differences between project and product management. Now let's address a popular topic: How does this relate to all this Agile stuff I keep hearing about? As with most things, the answer depends. It  can relate but doesn't always. A lot depends on whether your organization just has the trappings or ceremonies of Agile or actually has absorbed its spirit. (If you're the former, you're not alone; that describes any organization that practices Scrumfall or Wagile.) First though, some real talk about Agile ...

In my last post , I highlighted a first critical difference between project managers and product managers: the former tend to pull on the cost & schedule levers of the iron triangle, while the latter pull on the scope lever. In this post, I'll address the psychological differences of stakeholders to projects vs products and why that matters to the managers involved. We can use an analogy to help illustrate the difference: Projects are like running a marathon while products are like participating in a league sport. With a marathon (like a major migration project), you decide to run the race, train for it, gather supporters who provide encouragement ...

I've made over 2 dozen blog posts already, but I don't think I've addressed the key question that's probably on your mind: What's the real difference between project management and product management anyway? Addressing that question is - on some level - the point of this blog's existence, so it'll take months if not years to arrive at a final answer, but I think I can highlight (in this post and the next) 2 critical differences that illustrate why making the transition is not just about changing people's titles. First up is the difference in the way that project managers and product managers address complexity and potential overruns. Consider the following ...

Following on my last post about brands and brand management, I thought it might be an interesting exercise to look at the state of PMO branding in many organizations. By this, I mean the overall reputation that PMOs have or perception of them across firms. *Fair warning: Some of these numbers may be troubling if you're a PMO fan.* According to statistics from industry research firms (such as Gartner and PMI), here is what we know: 68% of organizations have a PMO, down from 80% 3 years ago Only 49% of organizations with a PMO say that it is an enterprisewide PMO 60% of organizations with an enterprisewide PMO say it is focused on business strategy ...

I would be remiss if I did not include at least some discussion of brands in a conversation about product management. For the uninitiated, a brand has been traditionally defined as a particular product that is manufactured by a particular company. McDonald's is a specific brand of fast food; Starbucks is a specific brand of coffee. In recent years, however, the concept of branding has been expanded to encompass any " particular identity or image regarded as an asset." By this definition, the term brand essentially serves as both (1) a definition of what makes your particular offering unique compared to other alternatives and (2) a substitute for a person's ...
