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.
