Each week you will go through 2 to 3 hours of self-paced material covering actionable frameworks and proven systems created by leading executives for B2B & B2C companies.
Conducting Market Research
Market research offers a way of qualifying our ideas, pricing, strategy, features and so much more. It helps ensure we know what our customers want and why they want it, rather than guessing their needs. It gives confidence in the product plan and avoids wasting time and effort building solutions our customers have no interest in. In this session, we’ll step through market research tools, methodologies, and frameworks.Read more
The Lifecycle of a Product
An understanding of the product lifecycle is critical for a product management team. If we don’t understand the lifecycle, we can make poor decisions and, in some cases, turn a potentially winning product into a failure. In this topic, we will step through the Lifecycle model and look at how we should use it to enhance product performance.Read more
