Workshop Overview
Product Management Foundations 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 centred around inquiry-driven development process. You will improve your understanding of customer problems and perspectives, solution testing, delivery mechanisms, and team process.

What we’ll cover on the day
Product Management Foundations 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 you 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 organization around them
  • Design thinking: What design thinking is and how product managers can break down what is needed for product understanding
  • Persona development: How to effectively create personas and use them in product processes

  • User stories: Creating an effective communication mechanism for efficient and transparent delivery
  • Core team communication: How to think about “culture as product” and foster a team that that is geared towards continuous improvement

Things to reflect on before the workshop
Before your training workshop, we ask that you take some time to consider the following questions. The more time you take to consider your current situation, and the issues and challenges you face, the more you’ll gain from your training:

  • How was your role described to you when you first got started?
  • What have you learned about product management since taking the job?
  • How well do you feel you understand your customers?
  • Do you think you have a healthy team culture?

Key Takeaways
At the end of the workshop, you will be confident in your understanding of the role of a product manager, including a firm grasp of the concept of design thinking and how it is important. You’ll have a clear understanding of where the customer sits in the product practice, how to define and prioritise your customer personas, and how not to bias your customer research. You’ll go back to the office feeling confident in your ability to facilitate a goals conversation, and how to structure hypothesis for lean tests.

Using process to collaborate strategically across your organisation

We know that product managers are responsible for so much more than simply product delivery but are often given little authority. However, as product managers develop in their roles and continue to confidently deliver value to their customers, it is crucial that they begin to align their organisation around their process and vision in order to have an impact.

Communication and Alignment empowers product people to begin understanding how to align their organisation around product process and practice. In this overview workshop, we outline some of the grounded, tactical skills that product managers can use every day and how they can add a layer of strategic thinking to help collaborate with their stakeholders.

Together we delve into communication strategies that will help foster trust and collaboration within your organisation, how to evaluate an opportunity, how to extract maximum value from your research activities, and much more.

What we’ll cover on the day

Communication & Alignment is a full-day workshop comprised of six modules. Each module includes a lecture component on theory and practice interspersed with up to three hands-on activities. This ensures that participants have 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:

  • Evaluating opportunity: Understanding how to unpack product assumptions and line up macro data to establish product viability and the foundations for product/market fit
  • Implementing user research: Breaks down the components of running a user research round and what is needed to ensure maximum value of the time invested
  • Research techniques: Reviewing a range of research methodologies, beyond the classic interview, that help product teams validate problem and solution
  • Synthesis: Distilling insights from research and how to collaborate with stakeholders to deepen user understanding and influence
  • Prioritisation: Covering a range of techniques and their uses for alignment at points of product development life cycle
  • Stakeholder management: A deep-dive into organisational relationships and understanding how to build a communication strategy

Workshop Overview
Every product manager understands that they need to gather evidence to help them make decisions and set the right strategy and priorities. However, simply having a huge data warehouse and analytics skill sets doesn’t help you ask the right questions or come to the right conclusions. So, how can product managers understand how to use data and metrics to add value to the customer’s journey and their businesses?

Geared towards working product managers who need to regularly gather data from different sources to make decisions, this full-day workshop offered by Mind the Product helps participants understand how to adopt a user-driven perspective on measurement, ensuring that your products are optimized for customer success.

This Product Metrics workshop is unique because it specifically focuses on the role of the product manager in driving a common understanding throughout the product development lifecycle.

What we’ll cover on the day
Divided into modules, each topic covered focuses specifically on the role that product managers should play in the process of metrics alignment and implementation: The workshop will be driven by a single business scenario, allowing you to work together in a hands-on way, tackling metrics questions similar to aa real-world situation.

The course covers:

  • How to keep customers at the centre of your metrics process
  • How to align your stakeholders around measurement goals and help them break down business goals into workable metrics
  • How to apply the concept of “One Metric that Matters” and how other metrics work with OMTM
  • How product managers should think about measuring tests and experiments
  • Implementing metrics and how to effectively collaborate with different roles on your team
  • Structures for reporting about metrics and achieving alignment with stakeholders
  • Reflections on what a metrics-driven culture looks like and how product managers can help to create one

Things to reflect on before the workshop
Before your training workshop, we ask that you take some time to consider the following questions. The more time you take to consider your current situation and the issues and challenges you face, the more you’ll gain from your training:

  • Currently what are your most common data sources?
  • How often do you look at data (qualitative or quantitative) before you make product decisions?

Key Takeaways
At the end of the workshop, you will understand how product managers work with metrics. You’ll go away with pragmatic, actionable insights that tie back into your job as a product manager, and specific details and scenarios about working with cross-functional teams to implement metrics tracking. You’ll also have a good understanding of the “One Metric that Matters” concept for various types of business models and stages.

Understanding leadership for product teams

Product Leadership is a one-day, advanced course intended for product managers who wish to understand how to champion product practice, effectively lead their teams, and contribute to developing a healthy culture within their organisation. It is not intended for senior product leaders.

The course seeks to answer the questions:

  • What is product leadership?
  • What leadership styles exist and how do you know what’s needed for your team?
  • How can you evaluate your leadership skills gaps and understand where growth is needed?

The course is focused on presenting concepts that frame how leadership connects with the individual, the team, and the larger organisation. It also deconstructs what leadership skills are, how to assess your current skill-set, and how to evaluate what your team could need in different scenarios. The workshop is driven by exercises that support participants’ ability to reflect and evaluate their needs.
