Forrester Decisions for Product Management

Successful companies don’t just create products to address known customer needs. They also deeply understand customers’ unspoken and evolving needs and look at new ways of adding value. But how? Product management leaders are at the center of this shift and must expand their view to manage the entire product experience — addressing those unspoken and evolving needs, day in and day out — to continually deliver more value.
