Product Management Acumen Assessment


This assessment will allow you to rate yourself on a variety of skills associated with product management acumen. As soon as you're done you'll receive a report that shows your overall score, how you compare to the worldwide average, and tips for how to further develop your product management acumen. These characteristics are also discussed more deeply in The Product Manger's Survival Guide (2e), or The Product Manager's Desk Reference (3e), both by Steven Haines.

Your responses are confidential and results will not be shared with anyone.  Please consider this an important tool to help you craft your professional development strategy.

Before starting, please be attuned to the rating scale:

1. Limited = Only limited opportunities to use the skill.
2. Intermittent= You have used the skill intermittently and are developing familiarity.
3. Frequent = You frequently use the skill but sometimes need some guidance from your manager.
4. Consistent = You effectively use the skill and will often coach others.
