A 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:
- Vision and Leadership
- Product Lifecycle
- Product Strategy and Market Research
- Business Models and Financials
- Product Roadmapping
- 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.
