Event Details

Do you remember your teenage years? Young startups that have secured initial customers and face fast growth go through a similar stage. They need to change and mature to take advantage of the opportunity, but those changes can be difficult. Deriving lessons from experience leading product teams in young, and in established B2B companies, this session discusses how product strategy has to evolve as the number of customers and the product complexity increase.
Whether you are an individual product manager or are running a team, understanding why and how your company has to evolve as it grows will make you more effective and successful.

Main takeaways:
- Successfully scaling a product and a business is different than securing initial product market-fit
- Strategies that help startups succeed in the early stage can become obstacles in later stages
- Product Management plays a key role in driving the necessary changes

Product School

Founded in 2014, Product School is the world’s first technology business school.

We provide certified courses in Product Management, Data Analytics, Coding, Digital Marketing and Blockchain to professionals across 15 campuses worldwide. In addition to on-site campuses, we also offer the same courses, live online. Both on-site and online courses are taught by real-world product managers who work at top technology companies such as Google, Facebook, PayPal, Airbnb, LinkedIn and Netflix.

Unlike traditional MBA programs designed for students seeking roles within the finance and consulting fields, Product School’s curriculum is highly relevant for the next generation of technology leaders, with classes offered at a fraction of the cost. The curriculum is designed to fit into work schedules with small classes held in the evenings or on weekends to ensure that both instructors and students can maintain their full-time jobs.

Expect a healthy mix of hands-on projects, group exercises, case studies, panel discussions and a variety of other forums to teach you how to lead cross-functional teams and build digital products from end to end. We also prepare students for product management interviews and enable them to expand their professional network through access to a private community of thousands of people; including alumni, mentors and hiring managers from top technology companies.

Product School also offers custom corporate training programs for Fortune 500 companies seeking to advance the product management skill sets of their existing teams or onboard new talent.

Committed to building the largest product management community, Product School has published the Amazon’s best-selling book The Product Book, runs The Product Awards ceremony and ProductCon, a multi-city product management conference.
