The Challenge

No one in the “Product Manager” role in the past two decades pursued a degree in product and solution management. Management accounting? Marketing? Business administration? Maybe. Nothing we were taught in a classroom could have prepared us for the pace of digital disruption, global e-commerce, or the overwhelming possibilities of big data, machine learning, and the Internet of things. As many of our software engineers have moved from multi-year projects to two-week build-and-test iterations, so too must our product managers adapt to rapid and continuous exploration, constantly adjusting to the faintest of market signals. This requires rapid research and development, and traditional methods will not keep up or stay focused in the new economy.

At Agile Rising, we understand the challenges of product and solution management. Product management is at the heart of almost every business. From building the right products and getting them off the shelf to exploring new markets and ensuring that financial choices maximize business value, product and solution managers play a critical role in optimizing business outcomes.
