The Product Manager is responsible for entire Software Product Management of Project ENIGMA. The product manager has responsibilities to manage from concept, to design, sample production, testing, forecast, cost, production, promotion, support, and finally product end of life. The Product Management starts with setting a vision for the product, which requires extensive research of your market, your customer and the problem they have that youre trying to solve. You have to assimilate huge amounts of information feedback from clients, quantitative data from your web analytics, research reports, market trends and statistics you need to know everything about your market and your customer, and then mix all that information with a healthy dose of creativity to define a vision for your product.
And then you switch gears again and start building an actionable plan to reach that vision. A roadmap of incremental improvements and iterative development that take you step by faltering step closer to that final vision.
