How much revenue for each PM in your company?

Someone asked me a question recently and I couldn’t find an answer on the Web, so I decided to ask all of you for help.

After reading my article, “You can never have too many Product Managers“, the person asked me whether I knew of any published numbers that provide guidelines for the number of product managers a company should have relative to it’s revenue.

The answer is, unfortunately: it depends.

It depends of the stage in the lifecycle of the product, the market, the kind of customers etc.

To get data, I need your help. In return for 30 seconds of your time — that’s all it will take I promise — I’ll collect the data and share it back with all of you in a future post.
