Product Management Fundamentals
Learn how to create a product roadmap, conduct a business and market analysis, define an MVP, evaluate OKRs and KPIs, wireframe and prototype testing, and build stakeholder consensus.
Set yourself up for success by practicing for the most commonly asked First, Second, Third and Onsite Interview Questions. Learn what questions you need to ask and gain the confidence of the recruiter.
Case Study & Whiteboarding
Before you receive take-home interview assignments or get asked case studies to explore your PM knowledge, you need to be equipped with enough confidence and knowledge to limit the scope of the question being asked.
Technical Product Mangement
Don’t have a technical background? Or are you a ex-Software Engineer? What specifically are the expectations for a Product Manager when it comes to knowing technical, programming knowledge?
Preparing for Product Launch
“Walk me through a Product you’ve launched from start to finish.” Who are the stakeholders you will ultimately work with? How should the product be positioned in the competitive market and who will buy your product?
Data Science for Product Managers
Making ‘data-driven’ decisions is the new buzzword, but what specifically about Data Science are Product Managers supposed to know? What are the expectations from a Data Scientist and how do you use data to win the Interview?
Note: Class programming is subject to change per cohort rotation based on the scheduled availability of the Instructors and Subject Matter Experts.
1:00 PM to 3:30 PM
Resume, LinkedIn, Cover Letter
Generate multiple interviews by building a custom Resume, a branded Cover Letter, and optimizing your LinkedIn for recruiting software. Learn an application methodology that has been proven to generate interview requests.
Master the PM Pitch
“Tell me about yourself” has to communicate breadth and depth of Product Management Experience. Learn the best cadence to deliver this pitch, what details to include, what to omit, and how to transition the interview into a conversation.
UX Research, Design & Visual
Not all startups have a separate researcher and a UX Designer with a Visual Designer. What are the primary differences and what are their expectations from a successful Product Manager?
Engineering & Product
Not all Product Managers need to know how to program. Learn from an experienced Tech Lead what the fundamental technical concepts are needed for a Product Manager to be successful on the job and at the interview.
Product Marketing vs. Product
At a startup, you are the PM and the Product Marketing Manager. At a mid to large tech firm, where does Product Marketing and Product Management cross? What is your Go-To-Market Strategy for your products? Pricing? Promotions?
Working with Data
What types of data exists out there? How do you collect data? How do you evaluate the integrity of the data? Who is responsible for ensuring data is interpreted properly? What happens when you don’t have data?
Simply put, Product Management is fundamentally a mix of soft skills and technical skills where you will eventually sit at the intersection of all the stakeholder departments at your company. To be successful, you need a firm understanding of who those stakeholders are, what their role is, how product managers currently interact with them, and the level of domain knowledge you need to know about their role.
The best way to achieve this level of understanding is to hear directly from those stakeholders. Product Gym not only sources the best product managers as instructors, but also subject matter experts that will be your peer and counterparts in the companies you eventually work at.
