What is Product Fit?

Product Fit is a yearly program of team-wide training and guidance.

With Product Fit you benefit from Brainmates’ extensive experience as Product Managers, our Product Management training, and our Product Management Framework.

Product Fitness is the constant pursuit of the well-being of your product.

Modern Product leaders need to ensure that their organisation’s products remain relevant and profitable within a dynamic market environment.

Achieving and sustaining Product Fitness requires a skilled and motivated Product team. When Product teams are not aligned and do not have a consistent Product Management approach, then the business suffers.

Brainmates’ Product Fit program is designed to support your Product team throughout the year to effectively build and grow great products that customers love.

How Does Product Fit Work?

Product Fit is an annual package of formal training plus individual coaching from Brainmates Product Management experts.

It starts with an assessment of the Product Management competencies of your Product People.

Then we design a learning and improvement programme driven by your teams’ capabilities.
