Learn how the role intersects with others in the organization. If you are transitioning from engineering or marketing to Product Management role, what do you need to unlearn and learn. You will also learn to work with different teams like engineering, design, marketing and learn ways to deal with their requirements and bring a ‘one’ view to the product.

You will learn to validate hypothesis, evaluate ideas by putting a product framework to it and eventually, define what it means to have achieved product market fit. You will also learn to come up with an MVP version and test it with customers.

At scale, all product-market fit fails. What’s the right way to go about discovering customer problem then? An extremely practical Customer Development Framework will be shared with the participants. You will also learn how to interview customers, collect requirements and prioritize them.

You will learn to incorporate design thinking in the product by designing product personas and empathy maps. You will learn to create practical user stories, story-boarding and ensure that everybody in the team is on the same boat.

You may not have a direct influence on GTM, but unless you actually understand what a powerful GTM strategy is, how else will you come up with one? You will learn to look at different components of GTM and come up with a winning plan.

As a growing Product leader, you will learn to write effective requirement documents, own the process of daily scrum and planning. You will also learn to work with different teams (engineering, design, sales, QA, marketing etc) and collaborate on their requirements.

You will be introduced to different tools which makes a PM job effective. Some of the tools we would be discussing are Google Analytics, Balsamiq, Sketch, Jira, Asana, Appsee, Canvasflip etc, depending on your industry.

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

If you have opted for this, you will learn how to crack PM interviews, handle assignments, prepare your resume etc. A mentor will help you guide through the process.
