Product Management is an organisational role of unique importance. The product manager is responsible for creating, implementing and overseeing the performance of a company's product strategy. Rather than playing a hands-on role in the design and manufacture of the product, they instead ensure its successful production, distribution and profitability.

They must also ensure that everyone understands their responsibilities, is able to meet strict deadlines and has the resources then need to get the job done. The product manager is expected to provide the kind of leadership that naturally inspires optimal output.
