Masterclass Product Management for Digital Services and Products

One of the biggest challenges within companies is the lack of clarity about what a product manager does. What are the core responsibilities and tasks of a product manager? Without a clear understanding of this role, teams can work inefficiently and face unclear expectations, significantly reducing the effectiveness of product development.

What should I build?

Many companies don't know what to prioritise in development or how a feature should look or work to best serve the customer. This leads to long lists of potential features without real insight into whether they are suitable for the product, target audience, or contribute to go-to-market strategies or reducing churn. As a result, resources are wasted and the real needs of the customer are not adequately addressed. 

Effective decision making for product success

Decisions are often unsupported by data and based on gut feeling. There is also a lack of thorough market exploration, leading to missed crucial insights into customer needs and market trends. This results in products that do not align well with market desires, making them less successful.

Pitfalls in building solutions

Many organisations think they are working agile, while in reality, they still adhere to a waterfall approach. This misconception leads to inefficiencies and missed opportunities for quick iteration and improvement. Additionally, companies often spend months developing a minimum viable product (MVP), only to find at launch that no one is willing to pay for it, resulting in wasted resources. Some companies get stuck in an endless cycle of testing and validation, significantly slowing down progress.

In our exclusive masterclass on digital product management, we offer a structured learning path that addresses these challenges and elevates your skills to new heights.

For whom?

(Junior) product managers and product owners from companies that develop and manage digital products.
