Functional challenges for
Product managers' point of view
Managing a moving target?
You are required to keep product information up to date across an increasing number of variations, communication channels and languages in a situation where product life cycles are shortening. Sounds impossible?
- Do you experience that planning cycles are getting shorter while demand for controlled communication increases. How do you manage information in each stage of the product life cycle during the product release process?
- How do you handle last minute changes in assortments, prices and photos just before a deadline?
- Are you managing product information on more communication channels, media and languages now compared to a few years back? How do you keep product information updated everywhere at all times?
- Are product data coming from multiple sources without integration points allowing you to know when updates are made?
