How a Product Manager can Help your Business
A Product Manager would benefit any business that has the requirement, for example a B2B start up that’s trying to break into the wider market. Due to this role sitting within the planning stage of the software development life cycle, it's important to get this part correct so that everything else goes smoothly down the line. This is particularly important for start ups as they’re so fast paced that they don’t have much room for error, so having a competent product manager in place to define product strategy and road maps is key in order for the success of the business.
A product manager would help to define and document the road maps for various products, which will show to the business various needs in terms of resource, budget and strategic requirements. This will help to streamline hiring processes, buying processes and eliminate waste therefore benefiting the business in terms of saving money and saving time.
If you already have a product owner in your organisation but not a product manager, by hiring a product manager you will take away some responsibility from the product owner that is perhaps taking them away from other tasks, and in turn improving the quality of the output of work that they produce. As there are some blurred lines between a product manager and product owner, getting two people that work together well would really benefit your business as they will know the ins and outs of the product from not only a strategic point of view, but also a tactical point of view. This will ultimately give developers a better outlook on what they need to engineer for the product, and contribute to the success at delivery stage.
