      • Want to become a Product Manager but dont know where to start?

                • Market Research - Build Because You Should, not Because You Can

                  Building a product/service is an exciting thing . It gives us the chance to be creative, to build something that creates brands, profits and jobs. Just as easily, your decisions can cost jobs. Build something because you should, not because you can. Build something that will engage, enthuse and excite; something that customers will gladly pay for.

                    • Product development in the cloud computing era.

                      While there s a lot of hype to cloud computing there is no doubt that it has an impact on everything that we do just like the internet and dot com boom from 10 years ago.
                      The forum is a open discussion on how the cloud computing model affects product development. Will the Software As a Service Model (SAAS model) be the dominant way to sell products? Are we moving to shorter product releases? What are the threats , challenges and opportunities to software product companies?

                          • Away from market, customers, sales and sometimes even development ... best practices for a remote PM

                            A remote PM needs to do things differently from peers co-located with markets and customers. Communication remains a challenge, as does customer interaction. Often a task that would be done with a quick chat takes 5 calls over 2 nights to get resolved. What are some of the best practices that will enable that remoteness does not imply lower effectiveness.
