Why Technical Products Management?
This course is about Tech Product Manager – a rapidly growing role in today’s IT industry.
Many innovative companies (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Booking, Uber, etc) build a big portion of their value on the non–intuitive (for a classical product perspective) tech insights and need a mix of product and technical skills to drive it from a vague idea to the end customer facing solution. Think Google Search: minimum UI, but maximum algorithmical and infrastructural magic which almost fully determines a value and the overall experience. As you probably guessed, search algorithms and large–scale infrastructure are two examples of Tech PM sweet spots.
But it is a mistake to think that unless you work for one of IT–giants, there is no application of Tech PM skills. Look around for a second mostly everything you encounter is an online–service of some size: you book a flight and hotel online, order food, learn guitar, sometimes even do guided sport and renew a passport with your government everything is online. All of these products do not hang in the air they are powered by ecosystems of actual software (e.g. Java) services and there is a product leader with a team driving them in the right (or wrong) direction. The moment mostly everything in the product becomes a service, the leader naturally gets involved in a Tech PM area.
