Learn how to create a winning product strategy and compelling product roadmap
This training course teaches you how to create a winning product strategy and a compelling product roadmap for digital products. You will learn how to build, validate, and update a strategy across the product life cycle, how to systematically derive the product roadmap from the strategy, keep it up to date, and connect it to the product backlog. Additionally, you will learn how to manage a product portfolio and align the strategies and roadmaps of its members. It’s ideally suited for product professionals who want to strengthen their strategic skills and who work in an agile environment.
Roman teaches this course as an instructor-led workshop with a mix of lectures, discussions, and hands-on exercises. This also applies to his online strategy course, which is live, interactive, and engaging. It covers the same content and uses the same exercises as its classroom counterpart.

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.

I really enjoyed the Roman’s training course. My head is now full of product vision, product roadmap, product lifecycle, and portfolio planning. I can’t recommend Roman highly enough.

Brilliant and inspiring training course. Exceptional online delivery!

I recently took Roman’s online 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.
− Jason McKenna, Director of Educational Strategy at Robomatter
I attended Roman’s course years ago, and I still use his teachings whenever we are planning our strategy and products. I’ve had a copy of Strategize several times but my colleagues keep borrowing it! Surely the best testimonial you can get?
