Private Product Management and Product Marketing Training

On-site courses and workshops customized for you

Improve your product team’s performance and learn industry best practice with our world class training and workshops.

Many clients choose our proven 3-day public course while others prefer a more focused approach. Either way, we will work with you to create training that fits your needs and then deliver it at a time and location that suits you.

“I held a call with a couple of attendees and the stakeholder earlier, they had really positive feedback. The manager said that there has been a behavioural change plus time efficiencies. They were really happy with the toolkit they could use following attending the course. They spend a day going through this and it has really speeded up their processes.”
Cheri Boucher, Learning Partner, BT

We start with a call to understand your objectives and discuss any specific product issues you may have in your business. Following this, we provide a clear and detailed proposal with suggested course content and pricing.

3daycourseWho should attend?

We typically see a mix of different roles attending – Product Managers, Product Marketers and Product Owners. We find that everyone benefits from an understanding of the full context of the different roles. Those who are new, rapidly build their skills and knowledge. More experienced participants get an excellent refresh and broadening of their skills.

Why Product Focus?

What makes us the best?

  • Our flagship 3-day course. For the past 10 years, we’ve been constantly updating the course to keep it relevant and current. And we get lots of feedback as it runs somewhere in the world every week. Plus we pack everything you need into an intensive 3 days rather than a series of 1-day workshops.
  • We have the experience. Our reviews and assessments give us unparalleled access into product management at industry-leading companies. It doesn’t matter if you have digital, physical or service products and target businesses or consumers – if you work with multiple products in multiple markets we can help.
  • Our unique frameworks are simple to understand and apply. And our huge range of Journals, Infographics, Webinars, and Reports are highly valued.
  • We provide high-quality training. We’ve taught thousands of people and worked with hundreds of companies. Our public courses are independently reviewed (see our references on Trustpilot) and we provide a memorable and highly-effective training experience.
  • We promote a flexible approach. We provide a range of industry-leading tools and ideas to apply based on a company and individual context (rather than promoting a rigid methodology).
  • We are global. Our team of instructors has extensive experience leading international product management and product marketing teams. We’re the European leaders in product management training and operate across the world.
  • We know world class product management is key to a successful business. As a leadership role, it brings the business strategy to life, delivers more profit and cuts waste.
