Straddling the line between robust feature sets and realistic timeframes for delivery? You’re not alone. According to our 17th Annual Product Management & Marketing Survey, 39% of respondents missed launch dates and 30% had to drop important features from new releases.

Build teaches you how to use market facts to prioritize requirements and user stories and plan your releases. You’ll learn how to provide an understanding of who your users are and what they’re trying to accomplish, so product and development teams create truly remarkable products.

*Foundations is a prerequisite for this course.
Attend Build and learn how to:

Improve handoffs between departments.

Clarify lines so that product management can focus on what needs to be built and development can focus on how to build it.

Prioritize based on impact.

Focus on the products and features that will have the biggest impact in the market by ranking requirements objectively using market data.

Use a consistent approach for all of your teams, regardless of location or methodology.

This course was a great intro to product management. I recently joined the product management team and this course gave me more focus than I previously had. Since this course gave me insights into how I can better perform in my role, I feel I should also attend the other courses in this program.

It's too easy to be sucked into the vortex of day-to-day tactical and never implement the things you believe will improve the business. This is your wake-up call and practical toolkit and roadmap to guide and empower your efforts.

In politics, nothing halts progress like a divided constituency. The same holds true for product and development teams. To work together, product and development must understand each other’s points of view and goals. It's only by working together that teams can deliver great products to delight those who are most important: customers.
