Successful are those innovative companies that manage to sell themselves and the unique aspects of their products to clearly defined target markets. Product marketing and product management are used to secure medium- and long-term marketing success and growth.

The product matrix organization has moved from the theoretical into the practical. Product managers play an important role within specific departments that are responsible for products and have discretionary power. Like marketing manager, product managers devise with their team product-specific marketing plans. It then takes coordination and implementation skills to make product plans a reality beyond the department. This teamwork requires knowledge of and skills in project and conflict management as wells as other soft skills. The idea product manager is a “leader among leaders,” a specialist who combines specific product knowledge with general department knowledge.

In order to better measure possible results of product-focused decisions, a product manager uses a number of strategic analyses. Marketing and market research provide relevant data, which can provide important information when mined using powerful techniques of analysis. Most product decisions are strategic. A well-grounded basis for decision making considers data parameters of the target market. Market-conforming product strategies influence operational decisions. Operational tools and product management tools help a product manager to make strategic decisions a reality using the measures of profitability and productivity.

With the support of marketing specialists, individual marketing tools can be used to reach product goals as efficiently as possible.
