The recent trends in the Indian IT industry is a reminder to the Indian technology led businesses that value multiplication is defined by markets and not just by delivery models. Everybody in the industry have agreed that a strong prescription to achieve velocity is to pay genuine attention to build market-driven products / applications. The Q3 financial reports of most major IT services organizations establish the fact that investments are being heavily made in the Products and Platforms space.
In our efforts to further this India mission, you are aware that we have been working with product & service companies to build world-class competencies to enhance the skills that are required to drive the idea-to-monetization cycle and build the intellectual property for our clients. Some of our clients who have benefited through our consulting and training interventions include; IBM, HP, Mindtree, SAP, Cognizant, Honeywell, Ramco, Corelogic, Fusion Charts, Polaris, Tejas Networks, Infosys, Onmobile, CSC, Paypal, AON Benfield, Symphony, Manthan Systems, TCS, Adobe and BMC.
Our Blackblot Product Management Workshops have helped Product Companies take a giant step forward by enhancing their people skills / competencies to create world-class products, which in turn means significant revenue and profit contribution. This program has been conceived based on the consistent feedback we got from leaders / CEOs who felt that product success was being compromised due to the lack of understanding of the PM domain across the organization.
The program has been designed to help technical talent to understand the domain of Product Management and their own strategic linkages to the PM domain and articulate their areas of contribution and handshake. This helps address the popular belief that technical teams do not really understand the market needs. We believe that the program will benefit people in the following roles:
* Product / Services Delivery Heads
* Business Heads responsible for Product Success
* Engineering Managers
* Business Analysts (both within delivery organizations or LOBs)
* Program / Project Managers
* Product / Solution Architects
* Design Engineers
* Operations Excellence leaders focused on AGILE type initiatives
The next Technology Product Management Program is scheduled on 20th February, 2013 in Bangalore.
