Organizing product management
I'm running the 2008 product management survey data through the final analysis, fighting pivot tables in Excel and using three other programs when I can't make Excel do what I want it to do. I should have something for you to see in a few weeks.
During this analysis, I keep thinking about organizations. Drucker taught that organizational structure doesn't solve problems but they do remove some natural barriers. Perhaps that's why we're seeing a trend toward product management being its own department, distinct from engineering and marketing.
