Is it a project or a product manager that you need? This is not a question asked by the entrepreneurs because these terms are frequently mixed up and used for the same profiles. However, for those who are very well aware of product management, the difference is big. So, in this post, we’ll explain the following: Project and Product Management: not the same thing!
Project vs Product Management
Project can be anything to deliver a result, a product or service.
- Project management is a set of tasks to ensure sure that the sought result is achieved with time and budget constraints in mind.
- It is about managing resources and adjusting planning to deliver the project on time and on budget. Risk management is at the heart of project management.
- Risks related to delays in delivery, excess in budget, team management, task assignment, etc should be always in a project manager’s agenda.
