A great product manager asks two big questions: “Should we build this?” and “Why?” These product managers are bad idea terminators - they know how to identify the ideas that should be swiftly killed, and how to make room for the best ideas to prevail. After our 10 part Product Management Foundations course, you will be one of those Product Managers. You will confidently ask the right questions, prioritize efficiently, and lead your team to product success. While we will definitely touch on the basics, this isn’t just a 101 course - you will gain insight into how working product experts approach setting goals, interviewing users, choosing the right experiment, communication with stakeholders, and much more. You will walk away with an arsenal of new frameworks and methods in your product toolkit that will immediately apply to your day to day work.
Product Management is changing. These courses made me feel like part of an elite group of product managers, more evolved and armed with the best tools available. Reviewing the readings and videos has become part of my daily work methodology.
