On-site in Tartu 31 July - 10 August 2023, NEW!
This course provides an introduction to digital product management. We begin with the business model of a digital product, discuss how to come up with ideas and innovate digital products, learn about customers’ needs via user research, manage requirements and work with the concept of MVP, how to do user testing, manage the product roadmap, manage risks, and discuss product metrics.
We combine theory, case studies, and a project assignment to learn about digital product management. Upon completing this course, you will know more about how to understand, analyze, and develop a business model for a digital product, become aware of the different stages in digital product management, and be introduced to the different aspects a digital product manager works with.
The course can be taken on-site. We have a lecture and discussions in the morning session. Afternoon sessions are dedicated to self-study and project work.
