Introduction to Product Management

Unlike traditional Product Management 101 courses that teach merely process mechanics, this course takes you into the journey of a newly appointed Product Manager/Owner and helps them understand expectations.

This course helps to answer questions like:

  • What is the difference between a Project and Product?
  • What is expected of me as a Product Manager/Owner?
  • How is this different from what I did in my previous role?

The course not only answers the above questions but also brings forward skill sets from a previous role. Students are challenged to think in terms of What is My Product and to communicate Why It Is Important. This course can be customized to fit what the client and the employees need based on the reality of their environment. 

Note: When taken live-online, this class is delivered in two half-day sessions.
