What our clients say

“Jock not only knows about Product Management, more importantly, he is a delight to work with. Thoroughly enjoyed writing new Product Management training material with him.”

Adrienne Tan
Co-founder, Brainmates

“I had the pleasure of first working with Jock at the earliest point of our business in London. Since then he has emerged as our go-to partner for any training related to Product Management. His knowledge is incredibly expansive but his ability to communicate both advanced and simple topics is second to none.

“In addition to being professional, reliable, and intelligent, Jock is incredibly personable and an overall joy to work with. I look forward to the days when Jock is in our office because I am confident that our students will receive a great experience and a first-class education.”

Matt Cynamon
UK & Germany Regional Director, General Assembly

“Jock’s training is fantastic. Really helpful one-to-one training suited to my needs and ability. Would highly recommend!”

Tammy Wallace
Service Owner, Ministry of Justice

Product management fundamentals

We offer a one-day introductory course on the fundamentals of product management. It is appropriate for people who have recently become product managers or who are about to do so. It is also useful as a refresher for more experienced product managers.

The one-day course is a mixture of instructor-led discussion, video packages and hands-on activities. It includes three modules:

1

This covers the role, responsibilities, challenges and desired attributes of a product manager.

2

Understanding user needs

This covers the importance of learning from your users and introduces techniques for doing so.

3

Meaningful product roadmaps

This covers what a product roadmap is and teaches how to create a meaningful roadmap.

Additional training modules

Your learning can then be supplemented with modules covering topics including:
