The information service industry is one of the pillar industries of Shanghai’s digital transformation and an important support for Shanghai’s industrial innovation and iteration. The industry association plays an important “catalyst” role in promoting the innovation work of Shanghai’s information service enterprises.
For enterprises, product development and management are at the core of innovation work. And the product director is the core of the product development team, determining the strength of the enterprise’s product development capabilities. It has been proven that strengthening the training of product directors can have an immediate effect on improving enterprise innovation capabilities. It is a key “leverage point” for enterprise innovation work.
