This survey set out to better understand the skill levels of Product Managers across 15 dimensions (called skill sets) and how they correlate to experience, job title, training, product process, industry, region, and other factors.

This infographic provides an overview of the state of product managers and the impact formal training can have on development and growth. The piece relies on defined survey data and presents a consistent approach to color and visual style. Additionally, icon choices introduce some visual metaphor, which is a great tool for building communication — that said, the infographic itself could benefit from more subject consistency across the different sections. The copy is brief and on-topic, relying on data to help drive the story. Some moments could benefit from a bit of trimming, but overall the piece doesn't feel weighed down. This infographic has a clear direction and purpose. With a bit more visual refinement, it can communicate even more efficiently. We'd give this a B.
