I have been a part of the Product Management Team for almost a year and a half. Being a Product Manager, leads to added responsibility towards gaining insight on product development and communicating requirements from the consumer/client to the developer.

A Product Manager’s role for Requirement Writing includes:

  1. Find problems and convey to development
  2. Represent the customer
  3. Own the Business Case

My experience has taught me that the product manager should:

  1. Serve as the customer representative in planning and requirements definition
  2. Define the requirements and the product roadmap for a market of customers
  3. Support the ideals of agile development (we want process, but not to much process)

Recently I was exposed to White Papers on Requirement Writing from Pragmatic Marketing . My understanding on Requirement Writing has since then matured and I have documented the same in a presentation to share.

The conclusion that can be drawn from my extensive reading and past experience is “If we have been developing and prioritizing requirements for future products on an ongoing basis, we will have success’”.
