Communities of practice
The Introduction to Product Management course is aimed at non-product managers who want to understand the role in more detail and learn techniques they can apply in their own roles. Find out more about the course and how we've developed it with help from the Product Management community.

This makes product management a difficult discipline to learn without doing. Find out more about the skills you need to be a successful product leader.
Being a product manager involves working with teams to define a problem, what the solution is, and how the product is going to deliver that solution. Building consensus around a vision makes it much more powerful.
