Are you an accidental Product Manager?

9 week online PM Bootcamp course for existing PMs to provide structured learning, boost your confidence & rise up the career ladder.

PROUD TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THESE GREAT COMPANIES

Futuristic Collaborative Study material
Course content, video lectures, assignments, and tutorials have been created in collaboration with the top Product Managers across the world.

 

Why this matters?

1. Reduces bias that comes with a single instructor

2. Multiple collaborators ensure constant validation of the course content

3. The course content gets a healthy cross-pollination of ideas from best global practices

Revolutionary new learning
Live tutorials by top Product Managers
The importance of applied learning can't be over-emphasized. We have created a global network of world's best Product Managers and they will be conducting live tutorial sessions, in which you will apply the learned concepts along with course mates.
What is a live tutorial? 
A live tutorial is a live online session conducted by mentor where every team presents their case study solution to mentor and other cohort members. Gaps identified in the application skills and understanding of core concepts are highlighted by mentors to improve further and iterate. Followed by 360 degree review and grading - mentor, peers and self.

 We conducted Talvinder's Product Management course at our office to learn product management and to set product processes. I must say that it was an eye-opening session and we learnt a month worth of knowledge in that one day training itself. We have applied the learnings and are seeing success.
 
 Highly recommend him and his course. He is an amazing coach with a flair of explaining complex concepts in easy to understand analogies.

Talvinder is a seasoned product specialist with whom I got a chance to work directly with and learned a lot from. He has in-depth knowledge of the various principles of product management, knows all the tools of the trade and keeps himself abreast with every new technological development in the world. 

He has the unique ability to succinctly explain value propositions, prioritize features and build valuable and feasible roadmaps. Along with being a great product visionary, he is an inspiring leader, a good person at heart.

What industry is saying

about Talvinder

To get noticed, one needs to

out-spend

out-shout

out-design

the competitors

That's a task that is obviously unsustainable. 

Spending, shouting or designing can't be done forever.

So, what to do?


Out-Product the competition!


This is the only sustainable competitive strategy.

Michael Porter would agree!

Out-Product

/aʊtˈprɒdʌkt/

adjective 

Differentiate via a great Product and associated Product Strategy.

Need Product Managers to 

Out-Product

Not any Product Manager, but well-rounded, skilled in business, design, and technology product management with ample hands-on experience.

Anyone can scan a bunch of articles, read a pile of books, watch few videos and claim to be a product manager. Applied experience and knowledge matters. Especially now, when technologies and channels have blown up, blowing up the number of skills that a Product Manager needs.

In the world with 7 billion apps and sites, product management skillset needs to be grounded in reality. 

To out-product, Pragmatic Product LeadersTM are needed.

 And it is incredibly difficult to be a

Pragmatic Product Leader

Too many skills and hands-on experience needed

 We read and analyzed 30+ online courses. 

We found that they are shallow in content and experience because:

 

Biased content

Almost all courses have been created and taught by one or two Product Managers, which heavily biases the content. One of the fundamental tenets of product management is to nullify bias and take objective decisions. It is ironical that this fundamental tenet is being ignored by the courses themselves.


No Personal touch

Pure online nature of the course restricts the personal touch that is needed in complex, multi-disciplinary subjects like Product Management. Online courses are great to reach out to a large student base but they perform very poorly in addressing the students at a granular level.

 

Applied Learning

Learning happens when the learning is applied. Just from watching videos and reading the material, one cannot gain competence as shown by Hermann Ebbinghaus in his seminal paper. He presented the "forgetting curve" to show how memory and learning works.  

 To summarize the numbers, learners retain approximately:

  • 90% of what they learn when they teach someone else/use immediately
  • 75% of what they learn when they practice what they learned
  • 50% of what they learn when engaged in a group discussion
  • 30% of what they learn when they see a demonstration
  • 20% of what they learn from audio-visual
  • 10% of what they learn when they've learned from reading
  • 5% of what they learn when they've learned from the lecture

 

From a typical online course, at most 20% retention can be expected, which in all regards is ostensibly poor.

 

Poor Motivation Levels

Learning in-silo requires a high level of motivation for consistent periods of time. This is almost impossible to get in pure video-based online courses. This results in abysmal completion rates. Completion rates of 4% to 20% are widely known.

 

Only Locally Relevant

Course content is locally sourced because the courses are taught by solo instructors. Courses originating from valley have valley specific approach, examples and so on. When Product Management fundamentals are global, why should the content be so local? For a student from London, such examples don't resonate well and hamper the learning flow.

 


Difficult? C'mon, there are so many online courses

What about offline courses?

Offline courses i.e. instructor-led classroom courses have some intrinsic benefits in terms of knowledge retention and instant feedback. Some offline product management courses are good but they all suffer from the following:

  • Very high fees, in the range of $6,000 to $10,000
  • Can't do it at your own pace, hence difficult to balance with job or studies


Regular classroom teaching suffers from force-fitting the learning and grasping pace on everyone. Obviously, some students will be far ahead and some students will be left far behind. The teacher has to teach for the perceived average student causing unhappiness for most of the students. 

PRESENTING

Product Management Bootcamp Course

It is a proven fact that students learn the best when they apply the concepts and learn at their own pace. Hence, we carefully designed the pedagogy to emphasize the application of concepts in real-world scenario along with learning at own pace. This turns the students into Pragmatic Product Leaders by the end of the course.

How will the learning work?

"Product Management has to go back to basics. Too much fluff is floating around, theoretical has to give way to pragmatic. 

Product thinking is yet to enter the mainstream and needs to stop being an afterthought or only for hyper-funded startups."

Awesomeness 1
Learn by applying and 
not just watching endless videos

Week on week we train you to develop a mindset to be able to solve problems that are vague or undefined with little or no information at hand, limited data, limited stakeholder access but still produce high result. Just like how the real world functions 


You do so by solving 15 global industry relevant case studies in 7 weeks. You solve these by pairing with team members. This team is dynamically allocated to you every week. You are merged in a team with people with complementary skill sets 

The litmus test of any product manager is when products are actually developed along with a development and designing team. That's when skills are really tested and multi-disciplinary competence shines through. 

Sadly, no course out there provides anything even remotely close to this fundamental skill. Project work of most courses end at "create a mockup" or "do user research" or "present roadmap" or some mutation of this. This is nothing short of ridiculous. A product manager is a team player and hence the project work should be reflective of that and not that of a lone wolf. 

 And lastly, the worst aspect is 

Poor Project Work

 Talvinder is an inspiring leader and a competent product specialist that I have had a chance to work with. An extremely well rounded business leader / entrepreneur, equally well suited for a large and complex internet business and for setting up and scaling a business from scratch. He combines deep product insights with a keen sense of business and passion to solve end user goals.

He has been a great tutor and colleague. Apart from being a good leader he has the ability to work well with team while making them fuel with great energy. He empowers every team member to achieve his/her potential and drive teams towards larger goals. I had an amazing time working with Talvinder and continue to look up for advice and inputs.
Surbhi Dangi on Talvinder Singh

The course is choke-full of hands-on training on all products that are relevant to a product manager. We collaborated with the best tools in user research, data analytics, prototyping, product road mapping and everything else in between to give you the most relevant training straight from the product managers and founders of these products.

“1:1 counseling sessions & mentorship provided by Talvinder, Founder at Pragmatic Leaders not only helped me to crack the interview at Paypal but also gave a deep understanding of Product Management. This is something invaluable for me!”

“Career support – I appeared for some 9 PM Interviews and ended up getting offers from 6, and I was able to join as a PM at a hike of 2.4x compared to my last drawn CTC. Achieving this was beyond my realm had it not been the support from the Pragmatic community. They instilled the required confidence in me with right pedagogy and mentorship” 

“This course is filled with so many gems backed by logic and reasons to turn an ordinary product person into an extraordinary Pragmatic Product leader. Course content is brilliant, weekly interactive case studies and discussions are priceless”
