I attended an excellent training course by ProductFocus last week. Well structured content, solid theory with practical tools and tips to take away. Makes a massive difference when the presenters are passionate about their subject. Highly recommended for product managers of all abilities and experience. Thank you to Ian Lunn for leading the course.

Excellent course, wish I'd done this a year ago when I started as a PM. It would’ve changed my view on leaving product management, but decision already made!
Cheryl Paterson - Product Manager, Allocate Software
A great course delivered by a dynamic and knowledgeable expert with real world industry experience. I believe regardless of their experience level anyone would learn something new. Best investment I have made for my team and business this year.
