About titles and responsibilities

Titles really are a mess in our business. What one company calls a product manager, another calls a product marketing manager. Technology businesses have generally ignored the standard terms used in other industries. In our annual compensation survey we asked people's titles and reported incomes based on the titles without defining what we think they are. We also asked them to report responsibilities.

Your opinion, although interesting, is irrelevant very important!
Each year Pragmatic Institute® conducts a survey of product managers and marketing professionals. Our objective is to provide those in product management and marketing with an industry-wide look at how people in our industry are compensated as well as identifying the most common responsibilities for product managers and other marketing professionals.

Get your two cents in! We'll be running the survey again in November so watch for an announcement on our web site and in our newsletter.
