Two sides of brain

Product Management Foundation

1-day course

A strong foundation for product manager growth.

Align your team to a consistent product management mindset and set of principles.

There can be a lot of confusion about what a product manager’s role and responsibilities should be. Other training courses focus purely on the process, but a good product manager should have both technical skills and emotional intelligence.

Good product managers need to know both what to do next and why.

This course will equip your product managers with the mindset and principles to think and act in the right way.

“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.”
