Course Content

Presenting the product as a living representation of its users
In this section, we place the product in the context of its users and then review the various product management approaches available to Product Managers.

Defining Agile Product Management
Based on Lean practices, we explore the iterative nature of Agile Product Management and how it serves both the interests of the organization and its users. We also review its impact on the product’s lifecycle.

Creating a vision
We review common tools used in the process of defining the product vision, such as the Business Canvas Model, the Empathy Map, the Value Proposition Canvas, and the Customer Journey Map.

Collaborating to realize the vision
We go through the creation of the Product Roadmap through Story Mapping and Release Planning. We also review the Product Backlog and the various types of items found inside. Finally, we explore the art of User Story Writing and Splitting.

Prioritizing the development efforts
In this section, we go over the concepts of value and how our value perspective is based on assumptions that need to be validated. We review the Kano Model as well as the Risk First / Value First prioritizing strategies.

Measuring the impact of the development efforts
We review the various metrics available to guide the development efforts and validate the product’s performance. We also introduce the concept of Innovation Accounting and present alternative validation approaches such as A/B Testing and Feature Toggling.
