The Pragmatic Marketer recently released their 2006 Annual Product Management and Marketing Survey (hmmm…maybe they should have called it the 2007 survey…)
Some interesting findings include:
- on average companies have 5 developers for each product manager
- about 10% of PM spend more than one day a week blogging
- more than 80% of PM spend less than 1 hour a week measuring marketing programs
- 19% work in product management, 21% in marketing, and 10% in development
I wish I could get my hands on the names of the 7% companies where product management works in sales. That would make for some good stocks to short!
