In November 2013 I attended the Product Planning course of Roman Pichler in London. In one day he could explain the complex process of defining a product vision and translate that in a tactical way to a product strategy and finally to an operational level product teams can work with. It is exactly this process that is often hard to grasp, and not well thought of. I really liked the interactive way Roman gave the course, responding to the questions and needs of the course members. I already used his practical tools like the Vision board and the Product roadmap which are really straight forward and makes defining this and visualise it on the wall, a real added value for the company.

Roman's product strategy course was the most valuable professional training I have participated in for quite a while. Very insightful, practical, thought provoking and relevant to becoming an effective product owner. Highly recommended!
Wolfgang Hilpert, Head of Software at AGT International
Roman's product strategy course is probably one of the most valuable courses that I've ever attended. The unique and dynamic structure of the course really aided my own learning and allowed me to apply my previous knowledge in a practical way right from the beginning. I cannot commend Roman highly enough. His courses are a "must-attend" for anyone wanting to improve their product owner knowledge and skills.
