Product Strategy and Product Roadmap with Roman Pichler
This training course teaches you how to create a winning product strategy and an agile product roadmap for digital products. Strategy and roadmap are important tools: The product strategy states how you intend to achieve product success; the product roadmap describes how the product is likely to grow.
The workshop is ideal for product managers, product owners, product executives, and entrepreneurs who would like to understand how a product strategy and a product roadmap are effectively used in an agile, dynamic business context.
I recently took Roman’s course after completing his book Strategize. It was a great course that provided relevant examples in addition to the frameworks covered in the book. I would highly advise new and seasoned product managers to take this course.
