The Brainmates Essentials of Product Management course is all about setting you up for success in your Product Management career. You’ll learn how to identify your customers and dive deep into their problems. You will review the product that you have and identify the actions to perform based on it’s Product Life Cycle stage. You’ll discover how to define your Minimum Viable Product (or feature) and use experimentation to learn from your customers to successfully build and launch your product, or a change to an existing product, to market.

The course experience is designed around interactive exercises, giving you the opportunity to practice using the tools and templates in the class environment, so you’re ready to use them on the job.

The course is based on the Brainmates Product Management Framework and is endorsed by the AIPMM (The Association of International Product Marketing and Management).

Success Stories

Your course was the stepping stone for me to build a framework for approaching Product Management in a structured and repeatable way. Since relocating to Silicon Valley I’ve been promoted several times, launched a few products, worked with some of the biggest companies in the world, and even received a patent. I thank you and your team for helping me take those first steps.
