The 10X Product Leader Demonstrates Different Capabilities
Product Management is a growing field that is essential to the success of tech products in every industry.
Smart product management can be the difference between dominating the market and being crushed by the competition. It is, however, a fact that many who look to enter this field are overwhelmed with information or confused with which direction to take.
As a somewhat nascent field, these challenges are to be expected. Hence, we at NextBigWhat have assembled a crack team of experts and put together an intricately designed course to help put you in the driver’s seat armed with all that you will need to begin your own Product Management success story.
“The course blasted the myth that building features is biggest work in product management. The other part which I liked is that it was more of practical and less of theory oriented stuff.”Kavindra, Senior Product manager (Oracle)
The 12 weeks course helps you develop foundational thinking around building the right product. You will learn to evaluate ideas, use practical frameworks to understand your users, create MVP releases, prioritize features, build roadmaps and importantly, decode the art and science of building great products.

PM Course Objective
By the end of this course, you will learn to evaluate ideas, use practical frameworks to understand your users, create MVP releases, learn to create powerful GTM plan and various tools you can use.
Packed with practical insights from industry experts, the course will help you:
- Understand the role of a product manager and how the role intersects with others in the organization.
- Idea evaluation / assessment. Doesn’t matter whether you are launching a startup or launching a new product in your company, evaluating ideas needs a certain framework and the course will help you ask the right questions to ask.
- Test product positioning and messaging. With minimal budget, how can one test the hypothesis?
- Navigate the product cycle. Right from MRD to PRD, how do great product leaders navigate between engineering, marketing and sales teams?
- Become a great product leader. The world is looking up to new product leaders. What does it take to be one.
Who is this course for
- You are performing engineering/marketing/support or similar role and planning to enter product management role. You want a formal training that ensures a head-start from day one (and post course-completion, you might also look for a career upgrade service, though not applicable to corporate sponsorship).
- You are performing the role of a product manager, but haven’t been through a formal training. You juggle between different responsibilities – you handle operations, talk to customers, you define strategy etc.
- You need a better understanding of customers – tools/techniques to define who your customer is.
- You are somebody who is launching your product in the market or have already launched the product – and now need to grow it by 10X.
- You need to grow beyond your immediate competition – and build 10X business.
The 12 weeks course has been designed in consultation with 25+ product leaders and founders. It will cover the following core modules.

- The Feature and PRD Drill
Feature X vs Y? What are the right metrics to track? Tools, Frameworks anyone? Product vs. Platform?
- The process behind Product Management scaling: You will take a deeper and practical view of the product management process, in the context of digital product management space.

How much of technology (or marketing) should you really understand? How does one handle product operations? What actually makes an inspiring product leader?
