29-03-2020 - 02-04-2020 3300 أبوظبي


Course Introduction:


Product Managers today are challenged by many things – the speed of change in the market, the speed of competitors, the speed of product development, and increasing demands without increased bandwidth to handle them all. Rather than focusing their attention on strategic goals, they spend too much time fighting small battles and putting out fires.


In this Product Management training course we will explore why current methods of managing Product Management no longer work, helps Product Management teams get more done and adapt quickly to changes in the market. We will explain the principles, processes, terminology and tools of Product Management. We will provide real-world examples of how teams can use Product Management right away, and discuss how to inspire and organize Product Managers for maximum effectiveness in Product Management teams.


We'll also cover some practicalities of implementing Product Management in organizations, including transitioning to it, sustaining it, what can go wrong (and how to avoid it), selling it into the organization and the impact of Product Management on your strategic planning process. By the end of the course, you should know how to introduce Product Management into your organization and start implementing it.
