Cohort-based Course

Learn how to diagnose and overcome limiting factors to help you make an impact as a Product Manager within your B2B organisation.

Course overview

B2B Product Management is difficult, but we can help you succeed

B2B product managers report a number of common challenges. Whether it's the sales team derailing the product strategy to win an individual deal, an inability to move away from a project mindset or a lack of support for product discovery, B2B product managers can feel unsupported and undervalued. In this course, Jason and Saeed will help provide a reality check for B2B product managers, explore the root of some of these problems, and share some approaches and techniques to enable B2B product managers to succeed.

Who is this course for?

01

B2B Product Managers who are looking to up their game and adapt the best product practices to their company context.

02

B2B Product Leaders who are looking to stand up for the strategic value of product management within their organisation.

03

B2B Startup Founders looking to get product practices in place early to set themselves up for scale.

This course will teach you...

... how to build support for product discovery in a B2B context

Whether you're dealing with industry-expert founders or deal-focused sales teams, we'll talk about the ways you can ensure you get the right feedback from your customers and users, and how to mix this with other sources of feedback to make sure you can move ahead with confidence.

... how to manage that tricky Sales relationship

Many product management teams seem to have little or no relationship with the sales team beyond shouting at each other when things go wrong. Learn what makes the sales team tick, how they work, and how you can work together to make each other successful.

... how to drive organisational alignment

With so many different teams involved, all who think they're in charge of the customer relationship, product teams might feel like service departments. But, let's flip the script, and work out how to align the entire organisation around our shared goals.

... the types of product dysfunction in B2B organisations and how to fix them

B2B organisations are different, but why? We'll discuss this as well as ways to identify the limiting factors within your organisation. We'll discuss how to clear some of those hurdles, which order to do it in, and what to do when you can't.
