Product Management and Product Marketing for technology-based products

Comprehensive 3-day course

Product management and product marketing are at the core of any business that sells products. However, their performance is often limited by lack of experience or poor training.

Our 3-day public course addresses this by covering all the key areas of product management and product marketing – focused on technology-based products. It is constantly updated with proven tools and approaches to give you an edge. We specialise in B2B and B2C.

Thousands of delegates have been on our courses and their feedback is invariably excellent. In fact we’re so confident, if you attend our 3-day public course we’ll refund your fee if you don’t think your skills or understanding have improved.

The course is delivered in 9 modules over 3 days from 9:00 to 17:00 (9.30 on the first day). Learning is embedded through industry examples mixed with interactive exercises and discussions to keep everyone engaged.

We run our public courses at specially designed venues in central London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris and Munich. We don’t think people concentrate well in dingy hotel basements so our rooms are flooded with natural daylight to keep delegates awake. There’s an endless supply of tea, coffee and sweets … and the food is excellent too!

Who will deliver the course?

What does the training include?

The course includes all course material as well as lunch and refreshments each day. As a delegate you are given comprehensive training notes in binders, a soft-copy set of best practice tools as well as the latest Product Focus Journal. The option to undertake Product Focus certification is also included in your course fee.

Product Management certification

The certification exam tests your product management knowledge and how you would deal with typical product management and product marketing issues. Successful completion will qualify you as a Product Focus Certified Product Manager. The opportunity to become certified is included in the price of the course but taking the exam is optional.

The exam is taken online. It is a mix of multiple-choice questions and questions that require short written answers.

It is not a memory test so you can use reference materials as you would in real-life. All questions can be answered using the training course notes and Product Focus Journals.

Further details including how to access the exam will be emailed to you at the end of the course. The exam will take around ninety minutes to complete and must be completed within two weeks. We will then mark it and get back to you with a simple pass or fail. If you fail you will be given one more attempt to pass. To preserve the integrity of the exam, the correct answers are not provided.

If you pass you will be sent a certificate and enrolled on our register of Product Focus Certified Product Managers. Click here for more details.

Is there any pre-course work?

There is no set pre-course work but we recommend thinking about what you’d like to get from the course and making a short list of what’s working and what’s not working at your company.

You won’t need your laptop, all the materials are provided – as well as free food and drink.

Where will the course be run?

Our public product manager courses are run in purpose designed training venues in London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris and Munich.

We recently used Product Focus to deliver some excellent bespoke training to our Product and Marketing team and the feedback was really great – thank you!
Hanna Smith - HR Director, Madgex
Anyone who would benefit from understanding the role of product management should attend this course. One of the best training courses I have done, the pace was just right, it was very interesting and engaging. Never boring.
Conor Tweed - Product Analyst, Realex Payments
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.
Phil Hornby - Head of PM Platforms, Diagnostics & Services, Continental
Please do everything you can to leave your day jobs at the door and fully engage in this course. I did it in September and can honestly say it is the most useful training I’ve done in my career.
Will North - Product Management Director, Callcredit (Will attended a Public Course then arranged Private Training for his team)
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learned so much more than I expected! I've recommended you to a number of colleagues. The templates on the USB stick are proving extremely useful.
Andrew Sayle - Product Focus Certified Product Manager, Zen Internet
The course was superb and we’ve had excellent feedback from the team. Everyone learned – regardless of their history, experience or accountability level in the team.
Paresh Patel - Head of Product Management for Managed Mobility and Security, Vodafone Global Enterprise
Product Focus has delivered everything we were looking for from a partner and I am really pleased with the training feedback. We have valued enormously their advice, flexibility and professionalism.
Jennie Brown - International Learning & Development Director, CDK Global
6 months on - I think your product management course must have been the most valuable course of my career so far. I have used much of the material on the USB key and your analogy of being the CEO of the product really helps.
Ellie Ryan - Product Manager, Thomson Reuters
Overall very good and very useful. It helped me with the foundations, core and structure of my role and I look forward to getting back into the office to use my new skills.
Gavin Murphy - Product Manager, KCOM
