About the Book
Thinking about many software product issues, some companies that are considered experts on software development began to adopt a new expertise in its software development process, Software Product Management. This role aims to ensure that software being developed meets the objectives of its owner while it also meets the needs of its users.
In addition, a person in this role has to consider all aspects of the software that I mentioned earlier. Some agile methodologies such as Scrum, have the role of the Product Owner, whose main responsibility is to prioritize items to be developed. In a way this is what a Software Product Manager does, but there's a little bit more to be be covered by this role.
That's what we'll talk about in this book. :-)
