Frequently Asked Questions
Everybody starts by attending Foundations. Which courses you should take with Foundations depends on your individual area of responsibility, the deliverables you are accountable for and the challenges you face. Click here for help determining which courses are right for you.
Foundations is a prerequisite for all other courses. Focus, Build, Market, Launch and Price were developed to build on the concepts covered in Foundations. If you do not understand these core concepts, you will not gain the full benefit from our other courses.
Foundations is designed to cover many of the core principles of Pragmatic Marketing that were previously taught in Practical Product Management, but in a way that is not focused on a specific job title. Therefore, if you’ve previously attended Practical Product Management, much of what you’ll see will be familiar. However, clients regularly tell us that they benefit from multiple viewings of the content. Also, if it's been a while, a refresher might be helpful since Foundations serves as a prerequisite for all other courses and its concepts are built upon in these courses.
In 2013, Pragmatic Marketing went through a reorganization of our curriculum to help make it easier for people to find and attend the courses that would be the most relevant and helpful to them. This change included renaming the courses themselves. To find the courses that best correlate to the ones you’re looking for, click here.
