“The material in this course was eye-opening for me. I have recently been named Product Manager in my company, but have never worn that title before. I needed to come up to speed very quickly and this material was helpful.”

“This course provides a wonderful exposure to the fundamentals of product management, and goes through detailed examples of skills that you will require to understand your customers (how do define target personas, map customer journeys), do competitive analysis (TAM/SAM/SOM market sizing, competitive benchmark) and invites speakers from reputable organizations. It was very useful!”

”This course provided me with the focus that I was looking for. I have been in the tech industry for 20 yrs and been wanting to switch from a Channel Development/Strategic Alliances role into a Product Management role for a few years so this course has been perfect for my needs.”
