Managing Product Management by Steven Haines founder of Sequent Learning Networks

Does your company use Product Management to its fullest potential?

In Managing Product Management, Steven Haines, one of the world’s top authorities in the field, lays the groundwork for moving Product Management out of a supporting role and establishing it as a vital, strategic partner with other business functions. He provides a solid, implementable framework that takes you step-by-step through a process that will transform your company in profound ways.

Managing Product Management Will Help You:

  • Better situate Product Management organizationally for more consistent operations that generate predictable results
  • Defeat the “city of silos” mentality and create cross-functional engagement models
  • Utilize a stable reference model for the planning, execution, and management of products and services
  • Clearly define the role of product manager, hire the right people for the job, and institute effective job-development plans for those product managers
  • Design and support cross-functional product teams to steer a product line and deliver agreed-upon business results
  • Institute a governing model that sustains Product Management in its dynamic role

Steven Haines sees an answer to business challenges in a place where few people have even thought of looking. Product Management done right has worked wonders for companies around the world―and it can do the same for yours.
