The best part of being a Product Manager is that no two days are the same, and you get to experience a lot! I sit within the Product Management organization and work constantly with several functions.
In reality, there isn’t a typical day in the life of a Product Manager. A ‘so-called’ typical day can be divided into proactive work and supporting the needs of the business.
I usually start my day with a hot cup of coffee on my desk during a dedicated market watch hour where I keep a tab on the new tech trends, identify strategic fit with our offerings and potential growth opportunities for the products.
A typical day could involve calls with Business Development teams, coordinating with Engineering Teams, or working with Marketing to share our innovative product range with our market and customers. Collaborating is an essential regular task for my role.
Feedback loops are priceless. I speak with internal and external stakeholders to capture raw feedback around product experience and improvement opportunities frequently. A lot of this feedback funnels into strategic tasks so I also keep some dedicated time away from meetings to contribute towards product strategy.
