*** DISCLAIMER: This event is ONLINE ***

Product Management is hard to define and many people often give vague analogies, like the "CEO of the product". When you're making a big career change, you need to know the cold, hard truth of what the role is and whether you'd enjoy and succeed at it. Join us to tackle some of the biggest myths about Product Management and help clarify whether it would be the right transition for you. 

Main takeaways:

- A Product Manager is not the CEO, but rather the shepherd of a product

- Visionaries and those who prefer to avoid details -- beware

-The role is highly agile, requiring you to keep an eye on the north star while jumping up and down levels of complexity

- Those with a bias for action do incredibly well in Product Management
- People skills are an absolute must for this role

He has a background in engineering and finance, and worked as a software engineer prior to getting into product management. He grew up in Toronto, Canada, where he started out building several of his own companies and got his first taste of product management.

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.
