Behind every successful product is a team of talented and experienced product managers. Contrary to popular belief, successful products don’t simply happen by chance. Quite the opposite – every step of the product’s journey from conceptualisation to reaching end-user is carefully planned and orchestrated. Professional product managers are responsible for creating and optimising all aspects of the product’s strategy. They ensure that product’s development, manufacture, packaging, branding, marketing, pricing and distribution all happen in accordance with the company’s predetermined objectives. They don’t play a hands-on role in the design or creation of the product, but instead ensure it achieves its goals.

The role of the product manager differs from one organisation to the next. Nevertheless, the product manager will usually oversee all aspects of market research, product strategy development, communications management, product development and marketing, customer feedback analysis and more. They are, in essence, the linchpin of the business intelligence used to create and distribute successful products. For those with the skills, knowledge and confidence to thrive in product management, career opportunities worldwide abound!

Whether currently working in Product Design & Management or considering a career-change, this Level 7 Diploma in Product Design & Management could make all the difference! Get to know the product lifecycle in-depth, master the art of effective marketing and build the confidence to oversee all aspects of product development and distribution.

Study in your own time and at your own pace, with expert tutor support provided throughout!

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body.
