Youth Programme: Digital Product Management



Digital Product Management is the process of planning and managing digital products and services from cradle to grave. Digital technology has created opportunities for companies to disrupt competition and develop new markets globally. In today's digital world, many companies are leveraging digital technologies to enhance the value of their products and services. Traditional products are also becoming "digital" products, as smart technologies are embedded into them to create new value. As a result, organizations are making a shift toward a digital product-centric approach to leverage digital product management in delivering these digital products and services. Digital product management also plays a key role in helping companies to drive digital transformation by offering their products and services through new channels that are built around user engagement and integrated into the consumer lifestyle, by meeting the user needs, and by delivering great user experience.

In Singapore, GovTech is positioned at the forefront of digital readiness and adoption in accelerating the development of digital products and services to meet the needs of both citizens and businesses. IMDA has also identified product development as an area of good tech jobs for Singaporeans, which will support the region’s growing demand for digital solutions. These are technology roles that are responsible for developing a strategy, roadmap and features for products, such as data analysts, program managers and data scientists. Tech talent in these roles help create, build and scale digital products. To successfully deliver business value to customers and stakeholders, many companies have included a common thread that runs through many of their newer job descriptions in their recruitment drives, which outlines the roles and responsibilities to deliver digital products.
