Digitalization Is Fundamentally Changing Product Management

Digitalization enriches product management with new technological, organizational, social and cultural dimensions. The development of digital services with new revenue streams and added value is a key of future competitiveness in B2B and B2C. The shift from classical products towards value-adding digital services requires PMs to to think even more connected and out-of-the-box. Collaboration with board, marketing, sales, R&D, manufacturing and IT is intensifying. New internal and external teams in fields like innovation, creation, digitalization or data analytics add to a matrix that has been complex even before. As “CEOs of the product” PMs orchestrate the productive exchange of all these players.

Digital experiences and service offers around the product have been becoming more and more business-critical in a society which is online 24/7. This is true for all industries, though dynamics differ. Connected products, digital platforms, big data, smart factories, new production processes, cross-industry cooperation, intelligent supply chains and decreasing customer loyalty foster the paradigm shift from products to on-demand-services.

By presenting selected use cases and business models the webinar teaches strategies, methods and tools of Product Management 4.0. It helps you to improve your personal digital competences quickly as well as the digital maturity level of your organization.
