What you’ll get out of this course

Navigate Tactical and Strategic Meetings

Learn how to minimize time spent in meetings and maximize output from meetings. We will focus on how to become adept at conducting various types of team meetings - from stand-ups to retrospectives - and learn when each format is most appropriate.

Project Management and Prioritize

Discover how to use popular project management tools (e.g., JIRA) more effectively, and implement frameworks like RICE for robust project prioritization to ensure your team is continually working on the right thing at the right time.

Manage Stakeholders

As a Product leader, your team’s effectiveness is also dictated by how you manage stakeholders around the org. We will learn tips and tricks I honed (while growing revenue 100% MoM and launching new product lines) to minimize roadmap pivots and influence without authority.
