Unlock the Potential of Product Management in Your Company
For product leaders and talent management professionals, Sequent provides a comprehensive framework to assess product managers and evaluate the product management organization. By understanding the makeup of core competencies of product managers and the effectiveness of product management practices, it’s easier to define the training programs and coaching required to bring your product management organization to the next level.
Like any strategy, a solid base of data is needed. Sequent recommends that corporate clients participate in the most appropriate assessment before, and, after a workshop. Before the workshop reveals areas for emphasis in the training. Post-program assessments allows for an objective evaluation of areas where people and teams have “raised the bar” to contribute to the results of their company.
For leaders who wish to understand more about the product manager talent pool, our product manager competency assessment provides an outstanding context. This assessment evaluates core competencies of product managers in areas directly associated with work done across the product life cycle. The product manager competency assessment is composed of a diagnostic survey, validation interviews, and a report with charts and recommendations for action. Clients can shape the assessment parameters based on location/geography, product area, years of experience, etc., so the data can be more accurately analyzed.
For product leaders who want to create the infrastructure to better enable product managers, a product management organizational practices maturity assessment can contribute greatly. This diagnostic tool is made up of a survey that’s completed by product leaders and select cross-functional leaders, to evaluate key practices based on consistency (performance) vs. importance. It’s also augmented with interviews that validate findings and to help make more targeted recommendations to management.
This product management organizational maturity assessment is also used as an input to a Managing and Implementing Product Management workshop because it serves as a point of reference from which organizational development strategies can be created.
