  • This course is comprehensive and covers many aspects of product management. You might be familiar with some areas. So feel free to skip those and move on to less familiar territory.

  • At the end of each day, we will provide an exercise to revise the concepts. Your best teacher is your last mistake- so please attempt the practice exercises. Many of you might be too busy to complete the exercises but try to at least read through the exercises.
