 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.

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 $4,000 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

Pragmatic Product Leader 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?

 Talvinder has a keen eye for product and usability - bringing structure, creativity and user centricity to products he works on. We always have great product and design pow-wows and he brings a unique perspective - having worked in the valley when his startup was part of 500Startups as well as in some leading startups in India. 

Talvinder is a hands-on product & design guy - working seamlessly with engineering, design, business, and all other stakeholders. Highly recommend working with him!

Product Management insights by Industry experts

"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
Build real products with developers & designers

Yes, you read that right!

You will be paired up with an in-house development team and you will be building a real product, launching it for public and collect feedback as part of your project work.

No other product management course does this and I find it ridiculous because every employer is looking for a product manager who has shipped and not for a PRD writer.


Apart from gaining hard skills of product management and team management, you will be able to talk about a real product in your job interviews. This product based project work will mean much more than any certificate.

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.
