About

Over the years, I have seen a lot of people working in product management for software, internet, VAS, Mobile and other kinds of IT firms in India. I classify these organizations into consumer and enterprise (offshore R&D and local market) organizations.

Consequently, there are very different flavors of product management that one encounters in India in these organizations today. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of misunderstanding and misconception about the role of product managers for each of these. This blog will post observations, useful information and analysis about working as a product manager in India. The views expressed in the blog, twitter account and other media outlets are mine alone, and do not represent official views of my employer.

I also tweet under the handle @desiprodmgr. These tweets are mainly about interesting products, product decisions, product strategy, PM hiring and other related stuff. If you are interested in product management, and are based in India, you should follow me and the people I follow on Twitter.

About Me:

I have been involved in all 4 types of product management since 2007, and have been a software developer for many years before that. The least involvement I had was in Indian market consumer product management, mainly because very few firms (apart from ecommerce clones) are actually working on this. I also have an MBA (actually PGDM) from an IIM, and an undergraduate engineering degree.

Side Note: there are several other industries that have a classic product development process, and follow traditional product management. Those are not touched upon in this blog, unless it is adjunct to a post on software or technology product management. This blog focusses mainly on software related product management as it happens or should happen in India.
