    The training is designed to help your organization increase its Product Manager skillset and to gain a deeper understanding of role and continue the process of developing and evolving product manager practices.

    The virtual live instruction is 14 hours in duration which is divided into four 3.5 hour virtual sessions.

    This virtual learning event, with a “live” instructor, utilizes an array of online tools that create a dynamic and collaborative learning experience. Participants will receive all sign-in/login details prior to the date of the learning event.

    The learning event will cover many ways to engage the participants so they gain valuable knowledge, insights, tools, practices and skills to become more successful in their role as Product Managers.
