Steve will introduce the Phase Review Process (PRP) as a way to bring Product Managers (PdM) and Project Managers (PM) together to improve product outcomes, build better products, and promote the Association of International Product Management and Marketing (AIPMM) mission to advance the PdM profession across all industries, companies and technologies.

The presentation will cover the state of the PdM and PM professions

  • AIPMM founded 1999 to serve the PdM Profession
  • PMI founded 1969 to serve the PM profession
  • PM Profession has 30 yr head start on PdM
  • PdM & PM are interdependent - Can’t have one w/o the other
  • PdM profession should be considered a superset of PM profession
  • PM proven easier to “professionalize” – logical, process driven
  • PdM problematic– critical, OJT, few formal training degrees, political



The presentation will emphasize the Importance of the Phase Review Process (PRP) and the Product Management (PdM) profession

  • PdM determines economic success of an enterprise (P/L)
  • Sum of PdMgrs efforts across all companies in all industries = country GDP
  • PdM is therefore a critical function for building products and growing country GDP
  • PdM can maximize economic growth –for companies & countries
  • PRP can bring PdM & PM together to improve product outcomes and build better products
