    Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it too much, especially about the tools. Learn Sketch, which won't take much time, pick a prototyping tool, and you're good to go.

    The biggest change in terms of skillset that a Product Designer needs to possess is business sense and strategy. Focus on developing this area.

      I agree with you - most designers are still pretty disconnected from the business side of things, and making design that might solve the visible problem but doesn't make any business sense.

        Totally. The job of a Product Designer is changing. Design is becoming more and more vital to business success, and designers need to understand how their designs affect the business.
