Collaboration and active partnerships with the local digital community are an important part of attracting and evolving talent while expanding our connections with local technology leaders. Recently, Cognizant Softvision teamed up with Product Gym, a local NYC group that provides Product Manager instruction and job hunting strategies, to host a networking and educational event.
The mixer held at our New York Hudson Yards studio included a presentation on “Product & Design-Led Approach” and “Defining the Product Manager Role.” Event attendees interacted Cognizant Softvision Product team members to learn more about our current and open positions.
The Product & Design-Led Approach
We create impactful end to end digital products and solutions. Using a transformational mindset, we work with our clients to prioritize business outcomes and develop their product vision. Our cross-disciplinary teams engineer software products designed for the end-user while modernizing a business’s core technology and providing automation to scale business processes.
Understanding the Product Manager Role
Product Management sits at the intersection of Design, Technology and Business and Works hand-in-hand with these teams to establish and maintain our transformational partnership culture. The Product Manager’s role focuses in four main areas: Discovery, Planning, Execution, and Analytics and Growth.
- Discovery: Focuses on strategy and alignment with client
- Planning: Represents the end user and customer voice
- Execution: Communicates the vision, roadmap and priority to the client pod
- Analytics and Growth: Defines and monitors KPIs to determine how and where the product can evolve
