About this workshop

You’re full of ideas, but how do you know which are worth pursuing? Enter product management. Discover the basics of product development, product strategy, the product life cycle, and many more fundamental product management concepts in this course.

You’ll learn how to conduct market research, apply best practices when analyzing user interviewers, and explore how PMs prioritize features for users and how the different types of minimum viable products (MVPs) can guide you to continued success. Products are constantly evolving, even after they’ve launched. It’s critical that product owners and product managers be able to measure their progress so that they can continue improving it.

This 6-hour Product Management 1-Day Fundamentals Workshop is the interactive and hands-on way to begin your product zmanagement journey. You will dive head first into various product management tools, skill up with exercises, and by the end of the day you’ll know how to head in the right direction quickly and efficiently using design thinking and product management strategies.
