Course outline:

Strategic Product Management™ (SPM) – This one-day core seminar provides attendees with the knowledge, skills and tools to effectively plan technology products and services. Product management is a domain that holds two disciplines: product marketing and product planning. Accordingly, this seminar is based on the Product Manager’s Toolkit® (PMTK) and PMTK Action Model™ – a comprehensive set of product planning and product marketing work templates, and accompanying process methodology, that illustrate notable best practices and processes (used by top technology companies) to create successful market-driven products.

Procedural Requirements Management™ (PRM) – This one-day advanced seminar provides attendees with the knowledge, skills and tools to effectively identify and articulate market requirements. Ambiguous market requirements lead to flawed products and dissatisfied customers, but well defined market requirements are the basis for a smooth development process and marketplace success. This seminar demonstrates effective practices that clearly identify and articulate market requirements. The outcome is a whole Market Requirements Document (MRD) that represents an intelligent commitment to customers.
