The Role of Product Ops in Scaling Companies

Product Operations (Product Ops) is an emerging role that has become increasingly common in scaling tech companies. It focuses on enabling product managers to concentrate on strategic work by building shared systems and infrastructure. Instead of product managers handling operational tasks like data management and analytics, a product ops team handles these responsibilities, allowing product managers to focus on value creation. Product Ops functions through three pillars: business data and insights, customer and market insights, and process and practices. Each pillar plays a crucial role in providing the necessary inputs, qualitative and quantitative, to inform strategic decision-making and streamline product management processes.
