Bridging the gap between easy theory and hard practice

Product management may seem straightforward on the surface, but the reality is far from simple. While theory and frameworks provide a solid foundation, the key to success lies in mastering execution, cultivating relationships, and comprehending the broader context.

This six-week program is meticulously designed to both equip you with theoretical knowledge and also foster deep, practical learning through continuous application and practice. You'll be guided and mentored by industry practitioners who are actively navigating the same path.

Who is this program for?

We specifically designed this program for Product Managers who learned the basics and want to level up their product career and master the most essential yet hardest skills in modern product management.

What other people say about our education

John Hughes

Product management can be an overwhelming job, especially when one is starting out. While Tamer's course helped me immediately overcome many of these initial difficulties, the real value was the practical introduction to many different concepts, principles and even resources (the reading list) that I find myself continually referring back to, long after the course ended, when I am dealing with a particular problem. I gained a lot of confidence from the group activities and discussions, even from simply realising that I wasn't alone in these problems. I would recommend to anyone who is committed to improving their product management craft.

Naaimah Saghir

I, along with a work colleague, attended the Product Academy in May 2022 and can highly recommend it! The course was a very practical and fun learning experience, with a mix of presentation, discussion, hands-on exercises and group-work. It was also great to work and connect with Product Managers from other startups. The sessions were virtual and we could easily attend it along with the regular work. The course provided a great framework and deep dive into important aspects of Product Management that we were able in our jobs.

Justine Hagen

If you want to expand your product knowledge, learn new techniques and methods and work with great people from different companies, this Product Trainings is not only in theory but also in practice the best decision to make.

Justin Warambourg

The Product Training provides you with a unique space to mix theory with hands-on experience from your talented coaches. We discuss the challenges we face, and hear the perspective of our coaches presenting real-life situations they faced.

Philipp Pohl

My highlight was the balance between theory and real-life anecdotes. I believe that product management is about experience and learnings from others, in addition to tools and frameworks, and the Trainings provided a great mix of both.
