FAQ

Software product managers are responsible for overseeing and managing the whole software development process. They are involved from the very start, working with our business analysts to define your objectives and research the competitive landscape. They help you define your product requirements and work with the wider product team to create a product roadmap that will leave you with a ready-to-deploy product that aligns with your objectives.

During the design and development processes, a product manager's responsibilities include effective stakeholder communication (with your leadership team, product marketing team, sales team, and more), managing various product teams (like the engineering team and development team), and ensuring development continues to align with the overall product strategy. Therefore, software product managers have responsibilities throughout the whole lifecycle of product delivery, from the discovery phase and planning phase to development and post-deployment support.

A software product manager is responsible for the whole software development process and software development lifecycle. Therefore, the product manager job is complex and involves managing multiple cross-functional teams.

The software product management process starts with business analysis and product strategizing. Startechup product managers take the time to get to know key stakeholders in your team and work with our business analysts to define a product vision that aligns with your wider business objectives and the needs of your customers. This includes analyzing industry content, trend reports, user stories, and sales data.

A product manager's responsibilities also include managing the software design teams and development teams, ensuring new products and new features are delivered on time and to a high standard. This involves regularly prioritizing new ideas, building product roadmaps, and reporting on strategic goals.

The product development process requires cross-functional teams with a range of different expertise and skillsets. Here are the teams at Startechup that collaborate on product development:

  • Software product management team
  • Business analysts
  • Product owners and product managers
  • Software architects
  • Developers
  • Software engineering team
  • UI designers and UX designers
  • Scrum master or scrum team
  • QA and product testing team

There's a huge array of skills that the product manager job requires, and these skills depend on the type of product management specialism each product manager is in. However, these are the top three skills we look for when hiring someone for a product manager's role:

1. Time management

A product manager's responsibilities include overseeing the planning of product delivery and then ensuring that everything is delivered before deadline. This involves getting feedback from multiple different stakeholders and managing the tasks of many team members in product teams. Therefore, a product manager needs to have excellent time management skills in order to ensure projects are delivered on time and to a high quality.

2. Excellent communication skills

The day-to-day life of a product manager involves many meetings. Software product managers often act as the key point of contact with customers, senior leadership, and wider company teams. They also manage lots of team members in the development and engineering teams. Therefore, it's essential for product managers to be able to communicate effectively.

3. Technical skills

Technical skills are not essential for product managers - it depends on the industry you're in and the type of products you manage. In software, a technical product manager who has a deep understanding and knowledge of software is a huge advantage, because product managers have a lot of communication with the engineering team who develop the solution.

No, although a product manager will often work with a project manager or project management team. A product manager's responsibilities are to oversee the strategy, development, and deployment of a software product. Project managers work on driving the goals of multiple projects, which aren't necessarily product-related.

At Startechup, we can assign an experienced project manager and/or project owner to your team. The product manager job is to build the product strategy, then manage developers and every team member throughout the product life cycle to fulfill that strategy.

Many technology companies outsource product management services in order to lower project costs and increase the likelihood of project success, whether they're building a minimum viable product or adding new product features.

Startechup procurement process flow

The Startechup procurement process flow can be summarized into four key steps. First, an Introduction call is conducted in order to get to know the potential client and assess their needs. Second, a project assessment is carried out in order to determine the scope of work and what resources will be required. Third, a project execution proposal is drafted and presented to the client for approval. Fourth, once the proposal is accepted, an agreement is drawn up and both parties sign it. This marks the beginning of the project and Startechup’s commitment to seeing it through to completion. While this process may seem long and tedious, it is essential in ensuring that both parties are on the same page and that Startechup has a clear understanding of the client’s expectations

Most common project execution framework

We mostly use the most popular project execution frameworks: Agile project management. This tool is designed to provide real-time communication between project managers and team members in order to efficiently execute tasks and deliverables. The Agile framework is based on a set of principles that emphasize iterative development, customer collaboration, and continuous improvement. One of the key features of Agile project management is the daily and weekly standup meetings. These meetings help to ensure that everyone on the team is aware of the project’s progress and obstacles. As a result, all project stakeholders are up to date on every step of the project.

Powerful project tracker tool developed by Startechup

Startechup has developed a powerful project tracker tool that can help organizations keep track of time, budget and resources spent on projects. Through the tool our team members send weekly project plan and weekly wrap-up by email. We integrated data from common 3rd party in software development, like Bitbucket (similar to GitHub or Gitlab), communications on the project Slack channel. It helps clients, managers, employees to see the time they have left to complete a project, estimate the time required to complete each tasks, and make sure we stay compliant with budget and project timeframe. Startechup project tracker is a powerful tool, for clients and project managers, to monitor the progress of a project and ensure that it is on track. Startechup project tracker tool is a valuable resource for any organization that wants to improve its project management capabilities on software development projects.
