About the Workshop

The Product Management Essentials instructor-led virtual workshop is designed for product managers who need to establish credible product leadership through a deep understanding of the business of the product, across the entire life cycle.

The imperative for product managers and their teams to be agile, strategically oriented business people is vital to company success. Added to this, product managers must contribute to the firm’s transformation, especially with more digital products in the portfolio.

The value proposition for Product Management Essentials is enhanced when key cross-functional team members participate and gain an appreciation for product management, and to clarify roles and responsibilities. This fine-tunes the ability to think strategically, prioritize work, act with agility, and make better decisions.

This program uses content that’s identical to Sequent’s onsite corporate Product Management Essentials workshop. The program is highly flexible in terms of timing, flow, and customized content. Many clients choose four 4-hour sessions delivered weekly, while others choose five or six 3-hour sessions delivered twice a week.

The foundation for this workshop is The Product Manager’s Desk Reference, 2nd edition, written by Steven Haines (McGraw-Hill), the “bible” of product management used by some of the largest and most prestigious companies around the globe.

Upon completion of this product management training, product managers will be tested on their comprehension and application of key learnings with our Product Management Professional Certification test.

Measure ROI with Our Assessment Program Add-On

Like any strategy, a solid base of data is needed.  Sequent recommends that corporate clients participate in the most appropriate assessment before, and, after a workshop.  Before the workshop reveals areas for emphasis in the training.  Post-program assessments allow for an objective evaluation of areas where people and teams have “raised the bar” to contribute to the results of their company.

On-Site Delivery

Most product managers and their teams find value in face-to-face facilitated training. Sequent’s onsite workshops provide a unique experience through its team-based approach to action learning.  These facilitated programs follow a “tell-show-do” model; to explain concepts, demonstrate the application, and allow people to apply.

Sequent works with your company to review content, determine areas of customization, organization of teams, and arrangements for workshops for a truly bespoke experience.
