Analyst(s): CIO Research Team


In this research, we answer the question "What are the different management layers within IT product lines?" Management layers within IT product lines depend on several factors, including company size and structure, and the size and maturity of the IT product line portfolio. A large and mature product line portfolio at a $10 billion-plus enterprise might include a product line portfolio manager, product line managers, supporting managers, group and individual product managers, operations managers, and shared services managers.
