This training course teaches you how to create a winning product strategy and a compelling product roadmap for digital products.

A fantastic course with excellent tools to build on!

− Elise Morgan, Head of Product at Just Eat

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.

− Seth Rubin, Head of Product at Webgains

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.

− Ian Roddis, Lead Product Manager, NHS

Brilliant and inspiring training course. Exceptional online delivery!

− Imran Kadri, Senior Digital Services Manager at OCR

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?
