The necessity of the Product Manager role. Transformation from a Business Analyst into a Product Manager.
Do you believe that a good Business Analyst can be a good 'product'? I have a few doubts about this – what about you?
What will we be talking about? We’ll be talking about the BA and PdM roles in a project:
- What is their zone of responsibilities?
- Does it make sense to have both a BA and a PdM in one project?
- Do we really need a PdM if we have a BA in the project?
- Does it seem reasonable to talk about the Product Manager role in a service company?
What we are going to tell you as well are what courses you need to complete to become a Product Manager and a lot of other ‘interesting’ stuff.
Let's have a hot discussion instead of a boring lecture. We promise a small present for the best question.
