Product Management Competency Assessment

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.

Product Management Organizational Maturity Assessment

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.
