Practice key product planning moments in cutting-edge simulation

Product management is fast becoming more than a job role. Organisations now recognise that it is the modern glue that keeps an initiative firmly attached to broader business goals. This gamified day of training offers teams best-practice product management skills earned in an interactive and hands-on simulation environment. Practicing key product planning moments in an open learning environment helps keep projects on track and enables agile businesses to respond to those inevitable curveballs.

How does the simulation work?

  • Introduction to product management in business
  • Learners are divided into smaller working groups
  • We deliver a ‘real-world’ brief stipulating scope and product delivery periods
  • Learners prepare product roadmaps
  • Wild cards! The inclusion of common situations that require reprioritisation and strategic pivoting 
  • Gamification. Throughout the training, different approaches are scored and we discuss the issues, complexities and opportunities that present

We live in the age of digital transformation, with the number and size of digital projects growing rapidly. Building a successful team that is adept at working together is critical in order to see digital projects successfully ‘lift off’. 

Solid project management can help ensure that your team not only learns how to work well together, but that they also increase efficiency and productive workflow for future projects. 

Bringing digital projects to life can mean different things to different teams depending on their end goal. Digital Project Management is essentially about getting things done in the digital world. The way that this is brought to life typically involves planning, delegating, tracking, reviewing, and measuring results — often all done using project management software. Some examples of real-world digital projects are:

  • Organisational/team digital transformation projects
  • New software assessment or implementation
  • Software and mobile development
  • Website design and creation
  • UX/UI design and build
  • Digital marketing campaigns
