Refresh Workshop: Fundamental Skills of Product Management

June 4, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

There are common elements and skills that are invaluable to every Product Manager. This workshop covers the following topics:

Pillars/skills

  • Technical: programming, good engineering practices, development stacks and methodologies
  • Analytical: metrics, A/B testing, growth, data-driven decisions
  • Communication: email etiquette, product specs, filing bugs
  • Product sense: design challenges, user studies, competitors, making feature decisions
  • Strategy: big ideas, product launches

The workshop is very practical in nature – Fernando offers concrete examples of products and situations to illustrate his points. His goal is for every single participant to walk away with at least 3 specific learnings they can apply at work right away.

Audience

The workshop is open to anybody who is currently a PM or has the goal of becoming one within a year. It’s ideal for people who are at the beginning of their careers as PMs.

What this is not

An important point to make: this workshop is NOT about Project/Program Management or Marketing. Those are somewhat related functions, but they’re ultimately different.
