This course presents the essentials of product management and Agile methodologies, and how they work in a fine balance to deliver truly great products and experiences. In an ever-fluid landscape of startups and mature businesses, today’s product development challenges present new opportunities to product managers and Agile practitioners alike. Taking a pragmatic approach, this course connects the dots between product management and Agile frameworks. With product development case studies from companies such as Amazon, TiVo, HP, Cisco, and OUYA, we will explore the why, what, and how of creating and delivering successful products like the Kindle, Fire TV, OUYA game console, HP desktops, and others that delight customers and build scalable businesses. For those seeking to enter or grow in their product management careers, we will discuss strategies on how to play and win the career game. This includes career-strategy differences between startups and mature businesses, interviewing techniques, team leadership, climbing the corporate ladder, and more. The course combines group exercises, case studies, and practical advice for early stage product managers as well as those looking to work in Agile program management.
