Product Cohort

Are you a member of the development or operations teams, or a even a Business Analyst willing to transition into Product Management? You may even be a fresher willing to learn Product Management.
If you are - then ‘Product Cohort’ is the place for you to be in. In this - 2 months extensive coaching program, our Product coach Sanjeev Kulkarni will teach and mentor you to be a great “Digital Product Manager” that you want to be.
As India moves over from providing IT services, towards building great Digital Products to solve the humongous problems that are part of our society, Product Managers will be in great demand (They already are!)
Since there have been not many formal learning opportunities for aspirants, they tend to taking the 2 day Product Owner certification programs. While such certifications help existing Product Managers / Product Owners do well, they may not necessarily help you transition into a Product Management role.
Product Management is not easy to be learnt in 2 days for a newbie. You really need extensive coaching and mentoring.

In the ‘The Product Cohort’ we cover the large gamut of ‘Digital Product Management’ under 2 units. Unit 1 - We believe that a Product Manager cannot function without a solid domain knowledge. This unit comprises of gaining in-depth understanding of the ‘Digital Domain’. We cover everything from Online merchandising, Product discovery and Search, to Pricing Promotions, Payments, Cart & Checkout and even Supply chain planning, SEO and SEM . In Unit 2 we take you through the concepts of Product Management, the roles and responsibilities, tools & techniques available for Product Managers to define, communicate, deliver and measure value across the enterprise; Vision, Strategy and Roadmapping techniques, Agile Product Management with - Scrum, Lean and Kanban. The course is a great mix of theory and hands on exercises (Individual and group). (See the detailed syllabus below)
After the two month intensive, candidates shall go through an online exam. On passing the exam you get certified as a ‘Certified Product Manager’ from Productshaala. We also assist candidates in internships if they have such a need.

Why should you take this course?

  • Product management is not an easy job. A Product Manager is like the mini CEO of the Product. They own the complete lifecycle of the product from inception to retirement. This involves a lot of work and it is usually not taught to amatures at work. We will teach it all !
  • We guarantee a life changing experience for those of you that are new and want to start a career in Product Management.
  • If you do not like our course you are free to walk out in the first week - with a full refund. Yes - you heard it right ‘Full Refund’. Our 100% money back policy protects your interest. But rest assured that you will love the learning experience.
