About Mindset

Mindset is a monthly series where expert product thinkers give helpful answers to your product practice questions.

We collect the questions from our training workshop attendees and the greater Mind the Product community. And, because we feel everyone should have access to this information, we’re sharing Mindset with the entire Mind the Product global community.

We’ve served hundreds of product people in training sessions around the world. We’ve grappled with thousands of questions from product managers asking what the workshops are like, who attends, what, and how we teach, but we also get a ton of penetrating product practice questions from participants in the classroom and insightful answers back from our trainers. We realised that we need to scale how we answer these questions so we can maximise the benefit of the answers for everyone in our community, not just those who have attended our workshops.

Get your Questions Answered

So, what are your biggest unanswered questions, or the biggest challenges you face which you could really do with some advice on? Do you want to ask, for example, about the best way to deal with those stakeholders you constantly butt heads with? How do you create effective goals? Or, what’s the best way to…?

Submit your question here and we’ll put them to an expert product thinker on a future episode of Mindset.
