PDMAProduct management is a complex role which varies widely from company to company.  It’s hard enough to figure out what your priorities and boundaries are, and then to educate your executives on how to recognize good product management.

Even harder is to get recognition for your contributions from your peers/constituents in Sales, Engineering and the executive suite. Each sees only a portion of what product management does, yet can block your career advancement.  This discussion will cover the expectations and typical friction points between PM and other key groups.
