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.

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