Bridging the Gap

How to bridge the gap between Product Management and Engineers?

Product management is at most companies an inter-disciplinary role, bridging gaps within the company between teams of different expertise, more specifically between engineers and business. For example product managers often define the long term vision for a product and translate this into requirements for the engineers. They work with marketing and sales to explain the capabilities and limitations of the finished product. Product managers define the long term vision and define the full product life cycle of a product, from cradle to grave.

That means that product management is probably the most important source of requirements. Whatever method or techniques the product manager applies to gather market data, his end-deliverable feeding the engineers should be requirements. This is where we start with a requirements engineering assignment, building a process to create a natural flow of information from the business to the engineers and back, working on specific skill sets, improving any communication and trust issues between the various disciplines.

Sourcing production and design activities, working with Vendors

Sourcing production and design activities and how to work with Vendors

  • Is (in- or) outsourcing be the answer to (some of) my challenges in design and development?
  • How to decide?
  • Are we ready for such a change?
  • If we do it, how will we function in the future?
  • What will be the impact on my engineers? Their world will change. In stead of finding solutions to complex problems, they will have to delegate these tasks and manage their vendors.

The deliverable is a specific recommendation on how to proceed, with concrete prioritized task lists for the teams to work on.  This process helps your people go through the change smoothly and successfully.
