Training FAQs

The FAQs below will help you answer your questions about Roman’s training courses and the follow-up one-on-one coaching he offers.


Roman’s online training is live, interactive, friendly, and engaging. Think of it as an instructor-led remote workshop with the appropriate mixture of lectures, group and individual exercises, and Q&As so that you can get your questions answered by Roman. Additionally, you’ll be able to try out the techniques and tools covered and apply them to your own products in the form of hands-on exercises. The training contents are developed and exclusively used by Roman, and he teaches all classes himself.

But see for yourself:

Here is what the attendees say:

  • The online delivery of the course was excellent. I was concerned that it may not quite give the same interaction with the trainer as classroom-based training, but it absolutely did. Roman used the online tools extremely well. Tom Brian, Product Owner at Petrofac
  • Kudos to Roman for delivering a fantastic, engaging, and interactive online training course. Nhung Nguyen, Product Manager at Eurail & Interrail
  • We got the same out of the online training as if we had been all in the same room. I really like Roman’s on-the-fly PowerPoint presentation. Kristina Underwood, Product Owner at HiHi

We limit the number of employees from the same company to four attendees per course. This ensures a balanced class, and it avoids specific challenges of one company dominating the discussions.

You will need a computer with a webcam and a microphone, preferably a device with a large enough screen, like a laptop or tablet, and a stable Internet connection.

Additionally, you will have to be able to use Zoom, Miro, and Google Docs. This includes the following:

  • Join a Zoom meeting, use the chat, mute and unmute yourself, and use reactions.
  • Add cards to a Miro board and edit them.
  • Access a shared Google doc, save a new version, edit it, and share it with Roman.

Carrying out the recommended prep work will help you reflect on your understanding of the subjects covered and familiarise yourself with Roman’s teachings. This will make it easier for you to participate in the exercises, and it will give you a better learning experience. You can find the prep work on the individual training course pages.

You will receive a PDF document that contains the slides Roman shows in class, screenshots of all the artefacts created in the group exercises, as well as references and links to books and articles. We share the document after the course has taken place, usually on the next day.

Roman’s online classes are limited to a maximum of 12 attendees for his product leadership training and to a maximum of 20 participants for his product strategy and roadmap course. This ensures that they are small enough to answer specific questions and big enough to have a sufficiently diverse group and engaging discussions.

When you have joined the waitlist of one of our courses, we will email you as soon as we receive a cancellation, along with everyone else on the list. We then offer the place on a first come, first served basis.

It is unfortunately hard to know if and when someone will cancel. But if you sign up for the next available course, we will rebook you free of charge if we can offer you a place on the fully booked one.

If you would like to join a waitlist, please get in touch and tell us which course you are interested in.

Yes, Roman offers company-specific training. If you are interested in having Roman teach one of his training courses for your organisation, please get in touch.

Roman started teaching his Product Strategy and Roadmap course as a public workshop in 2014 and his Product Leadership training in 2016. Both courses have significantly changed over the years, and Roman regularly updates the training materials and exercises to incorporate his latest insights.
