Morning

9:30 AM to 12:30 PM

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. 

Case Study & Whiteboarding

Before you receive take-home 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 do you use this data to succeed on the job?

Note: Class programming is subject to change per cohort rotation based on the scheduled availability of the Instructors and Subject Matter Experts.

afternoon

1:00 PM to 3:30 PM

Master the PM Techniques

There is a multitude of different techniques and work implementations that a Product Manager can utilize to solve even the most obscure problems. You need to know what techniques there are, as well as how to and when to implement them.

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.

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?

Details

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.

The biggest difference I noticed in working with the team at Product Gym was that they were committed to me crossing the goal line with all that I learned, whereas the competition is satisfied simply with sharing information. Definitely the missing link if you are trying to improve your career in Product.
