Is product management a science or an art?

Product management involves a significant amount of judgment and even intuition but at its core, product management is a science. Science is the study of the world based on experimentation and observation, two critical activities that lie at the core of product management.


For years, the intuitive aspects of product management have been emphasized, discouraging people from pursuing the discipline. Most activities in product management can be learned. Applying a scientific approach helps PMs develop the needed intuition and acumen over time.
