Product Strategy and Roadmap
This training course teaches you how to create a winning product strategy and an actionable 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.
Due to COVID-19, all product strategy and roadmap courses will take place as live, online classes in the coming months. Fortunately, Roman is very experienced in teaching engaging, interactive online training courses. Here is the feedback from the participants in Roman’s last public online class:
- The online delivery of the course was excellent. I was concerned that it may not quite give the same interaction with the trainer, but it absolutely did. Roman used the online tools extremely well. Tom Brian, Product Owner
- It was great not having to travel for a course for a change! Despite being online, I still felt that we got the same out of it as if we had we been all in the same room. I really like Roman’s on-the-fly PowerPoint presentation. Kristina Underwood, Product Owner
- I was initially concerned about this being an online only event, however Roman’s presenting and the overall organisation meant that this was a very engaging event. Andrew Halstead, Product Owner

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.
− Jason McKenna, Director of Educational Strategy at Robomatter
Enjoyed the two days with Roman Pichler. My head is now full of product vision, roadmap, and lifecycle & portfolio planning. I can’t recommend Roman highly enough.
− Ian Roddis, Lead Product Manager, NHS
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.
