Biocon - HR Product Manager (8-12 yrs)

Bangalore Job Code: 1162639

Bringing Product Management skills to HR

By definition, a product-centric mindset enables the value of services and solutions to be continually maximized throughout the various life cycle stages. A product-centric approach makes it easier to rapidly innovate and iterate because the focus is always on customer experience, evolving requirements, and strategic differentiation for a product or service. In fact, many thought leaders are now advocating a product-centric mindset at an organizational level.

Having said the above, I am making an effort to bring product thinking within HR domain.

- You will inspire confidence in the program and transformation vision and generate excitement, enthusiasm, and commitment.
