Pragmatic Marketing training taught me the basics and the foundation of product management. I was able to grasp the role and my responsibilities as a newer product manager in the field.

The most practical training session I have ever attended. The book will be on my desk, rather than on a bookshelf gathering dust.

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.

EXTREMELY beneficial class. I recently stepped into a product management role, as opposed to the professional services team, and this greatly helps align the goal of my role at the company.
