We have worked with many companies in the Retail sector.
In our experience, the basics of product management don’t vary hugely from one sector to the next. However, there are some key challenges that are specific to each industry and the retail sector is no exception. Three examples are:
- Dealing with a complex mix of products e.g., physical products like EPOS and warehouse picking solutions, internal software systems used by employees, and a growing number of digital services
- The breadth of the supply chain and how this integrates to internal and consumer-facing products
- How to maximize and evangelize the value that product management brings to the organization
Many companies have run private on-site training courses for their teams. This has helped establish a common way of working and addressed specific issues. Others have sent delegates to our public courses where they get a chance to learn with peers from other industries.
