I often get asked where one can find product management courses. Ten years ago there were few options and of those options, they were courses developed in the 1990s and were very outdated.
Types of Product Management Courses or Training
Taking courses and getting trained is one of the best ways to get a product manager job and to increase your salary.
Today one can get their product management training in several ways.
These are the different ways you can get product management training:
Sell study through a book or books
On the job
Self Study Product Management Training
There are a number of product management books out there and one can see them by doing and simple search for product management books on Amazon.
But few of them are comprehensive by covering the entire product management lifecycle.
As a result, I decided and Wiley agreed to publish my 820 pages Successful Product Design and Management Toolkit. It starts with the fundamentals for product success, then covers product market strategy, marketing, soft skills, product engineering, and product support.
Online Product Management Courses
Another way to learn product management is to do them interactively online. While I can’t verify the quality of any of them, mine consists of a PowerPoint style lecture of slides with voice-overs, examples, pre and post-lecture quizzes and a workbook.
