Roman’s Product Management Test

Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 09.43.17A couple of days ago I wrote an article about the characteristics of a great Product Owner. This was an unstructured list of all the skills, competences and conditions I could think of that are relevant for a great Product Owner. Yesterday, product management expert Roman Pichler, published a Product Management Test. A great approach to test your product management knowledge to become an even better product manager or product owner. And to be honest, compared to my blog post, a far more structured approach to test skills and competences.

The Six Categories

The test consists of six different categories:

  1. Vision and Leadership
  2. Product Lifecycle
  3. Product Strategy and Market Research
  4. Business Models and Financials
  5. Product Roadmapping
  6. UX and the Product Backlog

Example of the Result

After answering the 24 questions you’ll get an high level result per category. As Roman mentions product management is a complex discipline that takes time to master. Understanding your strengths and weaknesses can be very useful to determine you next steps in your journey of becoming a great Product Owner.
