How to validate ideas with current and potential customers, as well as how to turn insights into product ideas
- What is this product?
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?
Learn to write user stories and acceptance criteria, drive shared understanding on the team, plan and estimate, and effectively manage product backlogs
Who is it for? Individuals that can think big while managing scope, have empathy for customers and other stakeholders, love working with data, and are effective communicators. If you are new to a product management role, have an increased focus within your current role on product management activities, or work closely with your organization’s product management team, this program is for you.
