Product Management 101 — Crash Course in Product Management (Introduction)
If you are visiting this page, there are chances you might be seeking answer to one of the following questions –
- Having completed my formal education, how do I start my career in Product Management?
- Coming from a non-related industry, how do I break into Product Management?
- Being a Tech developer, how do I transition into a Product Manager role?
- I’m an entrepreneur; however, I lack any relevant experience to manage/scale my product. How do I learn the necessary traits of Product Management?
- I am an accidental Product Manager. How do I become a better Product Manager?
If any of the above questions is something that’s on top of your mind, then worry not!
I (LinkedIn profile) was in a very similar situation a few years ago, when I co-founded a Tech Startup and was managing the product. Or further, when I decided to move into a Product Management role in a larger corporate.
With little to no experience/knowledge about Product Management, I had to scavenge through huge amount of scattered resources across the web and talk to countless Product Managers to understand the nuances of the domain.
However, what I felt was lacking everywhere was –
- Structured approach to learning
- Enough Hands on or Live examples about the concept
- No guidance on what resources I should refer
Throughout the course of time, I saw the problem resonating with so many people.
To close this knowledge gap, I thought it would be a good idea to develop a platform to provide resources for people looking to learn Product Management.
To start with, I wrote this handbook “Product Management 101”. It provides easy & step-by-step guide that acts as a Crash Course for anyone (Beginner or Expert)
Anyone can easily go through this Free Product Management Training and aspire to become a PM.
The content of the handbook is designed to be brief yet comprehensive and has taken inspiration from curated sources that include Expert Blogs, Handbooks, interaction with PMs and our on-job learning as a Product Professional.
