    Abstract

    The role of Product Manager within industry is a driving force of innovation. Product Managers are trained as individual contributor engineers, yet evolve into multi-functional managers who lead the business, often through on-the-job training. Drawing on 17 in-depth interviews with Product Management practitioners and recruiters across a range of businesses, a collection of "what counts factors" emerged for success in this position. These characteristics, in turn, are used to define a workshop intervention that prepares engineering graduate students to face the challenges of multi-functional team leadership in the Product Manager role.
