In this example, we look at an engineer, who has worked in a transformative phase of the automotive industry and realized that the change in expectations of customers, who are exposed to Tesla’s software updates schedules and iterative improvements, would soon lead the incumbents out of business if they don’t redesign the supply chain.
In the current role as an Automobile Engineer, he has a wide-ranging experience in evaluating project requirements, finding the feasibility of implementing a feature, prototyping the new components, testing the design and components in multiple conditions, and negotiating with suppliers for the optimum design-price ratio. The technical, interpersonal, negotiation, and cross-functional communication skills all came in handy for his success to date. But for the disruption happening in the automotive industry where connectedness, electric, autonomous, and iterative software updates become an integral part of the product, a multi-functional exposure to all the building blocks of management is essential for him to transition from an Engineer to a Product Management role.
