Details: Title: Product Management: What is it and is it for me? Abstract: Professors define class assignments. Once I graduate and join the corporate ranks who defines the work then? Product Managers! Product Managers are responsible for guiding the success of a product by leading the cross-functional teams. Product Management is an important organizational role - especially in technology companies - that sets the strategy, product roadmap, feature definition, as well as the success criteria. Product Management roles are increasingly coveted offering high salaries and ample growth opportunities. No one majors in product management. The kaleidoscope of skills required can seem daunting. How would I start a career in product management? Outline Product Management -What is Product Management? -What do Product Managers do? -What skills are important for a Product Manager? -Is Product Management for me? -What actions can I take now? Bio: Emilie Schmidt has over 30 years of experience in IT as a technology strategist specializing in enterprise architecture and governance. Beginning as a computer operator as a work-study student at the University of Scranton, Emilie has performed virtually every function in IT. Facing 10 years of student loan debt upon graduation she was unable to pursue her dream of joining the Peace Corps. Instead, she accepted a system programmer position with the hope of visiting her assigned customer account: South African Power & Light. When it was clear the desired travel would neither materialize quickly and nor obtaining any meaningful job from assigned tasks, Emilie opted to obtain her K-12 Teaching Certification at night. This gave a new spin on her skills mix! She joined the Educational Services Division of a leading high-tech firm in New England where she thoroughly enjoyed gaining expertise in end-user experience and instructional design. While at Digital Equipment Corporation she managed numerous hardware and software groups, pioneered teleworking before the invention of the internet as a product manager at corporate with an engineering team based in Australia's Gold Coast. Despite the enjoyment of working in Surfer's Paradise, the transatlantic flights and long periods of time from family led her to accept a promotion to Strategic Relationship Manager negotiating licensing agreements with Microsoft that only involved travel to the west coast. Along the way she completed her company sponsored MBA program at Boston University at night. She graduated the same time she made her last student loan payment and celebrated with a month-long camping safari in Tanzania quickly followed by five weeks traveling through Bolivia, Ecuador, and Peru crossing Machu Pichu and the Gallapagos Islands off her bucket list. The dubious future of Digital Equipment provided an opportunity to ponder a move to a warmer climate. She eyed North Carolina which she continues to call home. As the first Chief Technology Officer for the state of North Carolina, Emilie established and copyrighted the first Enterprise Architecture for state government with publication filed at the Library of Congress for reference by others. The quality assurance processes and project reporting procedures she instituted were awarded the 1998 Quality Assurance Institute Best of the Best Award. Emilie launched the NC@YourService statewide portal with innovative combination of Yahoo! and North Carolina government content, resulting in the state receiving the Computerworld Honors Medal in recognition of noteworthy use of technology as well as Government Technology Best of the Web 2000 award. Subsequently, she consulted with other state governments (Commonwealth of Massachusetts, California, and Georgia) on IT strategic planning and business IT/alignment. She spoke at Gartner Group technology conferences in New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Then, with her parents aging, she took a "Mc Job" at USPS that would not require travel. Emilie's talents were recognized, and she was quickly assigned to manage distributed computing operations responsible for ensuring every post office nation wide sold stamps at the correct price. And, because she made learning the business of USPS her business, she once again rose through the ranks and ended her career as IT Strategy Manager. In retirement, she and her husband remain committed to travel and crossed off sections hikes of the Appalachian Trail and driving cross country in their retro-hip 1986 VW pop-up camper. Their most recent pre-COVID trip was a 40-day cruise from Vancouver around Cape Horn to again visit Rio de Janeiro. She anxiously awaits the end of COVID. She divides her time between The Berkshires (summer home of the Boston Symphony) where she and her husband fondly remember the times spent at Tanglewood as well as on tour with Seiji Ozawa to Hong Kong and Japan and North Carolina where she performed stand-up at the local comedy club Charlie Goodnight's. Her words of advice to students is to enjoy your live journey, both career and personal!
