Event description

Description

Description.
In this six session program you’ll be introduced to practical tools to define, build, and launch a product using agile methodologies to iterate rapidly, test continuously and scale.

The online facilitated sessions will include group activities utilizing online collaboration tools and reflective exercises will help you transfer what you learn into your own practice. You will learn to answer the questions:

  • What is the role of product management? You’ll be taught scope, overview of the product life cycle, and agile product management
  • Why this product? You’ll discover how to validate ideas with current and potential customers, as well as how to turn insights into product ideas
  • What is this product? You’ll explore how to make data-driven decisions, define and build a product, and communicate effectively with stakeholders
  • How do we build this product in an agile environment? You’ll learn to write user stories and acceptance criteria, drive shared understanding on the team, plan and estimate, and effectively manage product backlogs

Between live online facilitated sessions you'll complete self-study assignments.

You’ll get a lot from this program if you can think big while managing scope, have empathy for customers and other stakeholders, love working with data and are an effective communicator.

Who is this program for?
This program is for you if you:

  • Are new to a product management role.
  • Have an increased focus within your current role on product management activities.
  • Work closely with your organization’s product management team.
