Description

Understanding the key concepts of product

Training Workshop Overview

The Product Management role is still fairly young, and it’s definitely somewhat misunderstood. Being the outsider in a world of product people can be confusing and frustrating, so getting a firm understanding of product and the concepts used by product people is definitely a smart move.

Designed for individuals who are interested in understanding the role of Product Management or who work collaboratively with Product Managers, this workshop will give you a high-level understanding of the product process, a general interpretation of how product teams are structured, and an understanding of how outside roles should work with product teams.


What we’ll cover on the day

Product for Non-Product-People is a full-day workshop that is comprised of multiple modules. Each module includes a lecture component on theory and practice, interspersed with up to three hands-on activities. This ensures that you are afforded an opportunity to apply and work with concepts in a setting that will answer questions and facilitate critical thinking. We’ll look at:

  • The Product Management Role: the definition of a ‘Product Manager’ (what the role includes), and the main frameworks commonly used by product managers
  • The Wider Product Team: what product culture means for teams, a structure of best practice for product teams, and what cross-functional autonomous teams look like
  • The Importance of Learning: how learning drives product and how to collaborate with product teams on learning
  • The Importance of the User: How to position users at the centre of your organisation’s process, where users fit in, how to speak to customers, and how to define what your customer's challenges and needs are
  • Thinking like a Product Person: how to adopt a testing mindset, and how to start visualising ideas


Key Takeaways

At the end of the workshop, you will have a good understanding of what a product manager is responsible for the work they do, and of their motivations and challenges. You’ll understand the focus of product teams, have a general understanding of how product teams are structured, and - equally as important - how outside roles should work with product.




Mind the Product Trainers

Every Mind the Product trainer is a working product manager who has worked with multiple products and domains. Your trainer’s product management experience enriches the curriculum by delivering diverse perspectives on best practice in different scenarios. You will hear about the products they have worked on in the past, what went well, what didn’t go so well, and how they tried to make improvements. Our trainers’ main goal is not to provide participants with all of the answers, but help facilitate them in asking the right questions.
