The Development Program Manager is responsible for supervising the creation of a final product. He/She is also responsible for maintaining the end-users interest while the product is in development.
The job involves meeting with the product design and product development team to develop systems that simplify the product without reducing features. It's a complicated job title, and it doesn't exist in many organizations. Instead, responsibility is taken by the product manager or design manager.
A day in a Development Program Manager's life may involve reviewing current design proposals, meeting with teams, and testing the product. He/She may also conduct surveys to learn how users interact with the product.
Development Program Managers come from a variety of backgrounds. They may have prior experience in product design, customer relations, UX design, or a combination of all these. To become a Development Program Manager, you need a degree in product design or related fields, as well as several years of experience.
