Money is the language of business. It doesn’t matter if your organisation is for profit, not for profit, government or education.

Yet many Product people have a deep understanding of how their Product works and their customers’ needs – but little grasp of how their Product generates financial benefits for their business.

Brainmates’ Financial Fundamentals for Product Managers 1 day course closes this gap. It gives you a thorough understanding of how a Product’s finances work in one jam-packed day.

What we cover

The best Product Managers know the financial performance of their Products back to front. They can talk confidently and knowledgeably about costs, revenue, profit and margins and know which levers they can pull to change the financial performance of their Products. NOT understanding Product financials is the most common reason that Product Managers are passed over for promotion. Senior businesspeople talk the language of money. If you can’t contribute – you’ll be left out of the most important discussions to do with your Product.

This course will enable you to understand the key financial terms and concepts which underpin the financial performance of all Products. We will teach you how to:

  • Accurately assess the financial performance of existing Products
  • Calculate how Products are likely to perform in the future
  • Put together the financial aspects for a business case for investment
  • Work out which Product ideas are the best financial bets for your company
