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 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?
