Annual survey published

Some product management surveys have 49 responses; our 9th annual product management and marketing survey had over 1,100. We learned about the activities product managers perform, good and bad. We learned the difference between product managers and product marketing managers. We learned where you report in the organization. See how you compare with others in the industry in Pragmatic Institute's 2008 Annual Product Management and Marketing Survey. Here's the part you probably care most about:
  • Product managers receive 50 e-mails a day and send about 25.
  • Product managers spend roughly two days a week in internal meetings (15 meetings/week). But 55% are going to 15 meetings or more each week, and 35% attend 20 or more meetings!
  • Average US product management compensation is $100,341 salary plus $12,467 annual bonus.
Read more details in the Pragmatic Institute 2008 Annual Product Management and Marketing Survey. And watch for a webinar to discuss this and other aspects of product management early in 2009.
