Product Management Foundations 101 Training Workshop - Dublin
Understanding your role as a product manager
Training Workshop Overview
Foundations 101 is an overview course intended for individuals who hold the title of Product Manager, or have some working knowledge of the product development process. The intention of this course is to help product managers develop a broader understanding of their role. It seeks to answer the questions:
What are the core functions and primary responsibilities of a product manager?
What does good product management look like?
How do product managers know if they are adding value?
As such, the course is tightly focused on running an effective core team that is centered around inquiry-driven development process. Participants will improve their understanding of customer problems and perspectives, solution testing, delivery mechanisms, and team process.
What we’ll cover on the day
Foundations 101 is a full-day workshop that is comprised of nine modules. Each module includes a lecture component on theory and practice interspersed with up to three hands-on activities. This ensures that participants are afforded an opportunity to apply and work with concepts in a setting that will answer questions and facilitate critical thinking. The following modules will be covered:
Learning mindsets: How inquiry breaks down at different points through the product development lifecycle
Goals alignment: How to create effective goals and align the team and organisation around them
Design thinking: What design thinking is and how product managers can break down what is needed for product understanding
