Product Development Directors

Advancement Prospects

Product development directors who work for large companies advance to become senior directors, overseeing larger development teams and more development projects. They may become department heads or vice presidents or go on to a chief executive officer position. Those who are employed full time may leave their jobs to start their own consulting companies. They may go back to school for an advanced degree, such as a master's in business administration, which can improve their job prospects. Certification is another form of advancement. Some get more involved in professional associations, such as by speaking at conferences and teaching workshops.
