The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course
Early in my career, I wasted months trying to learn more skills to break into a product owner role. Despite all of my efforts, I was completely lost because:
- I lacked a formal background or experience in project management, computer science, or software engineering.
- I wasn’t confident that learning how to code and building a career in software engineering was right for me. Instead, I loved the cross-functional skills that came with being a product owner.
- I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend 100% of my time in a customer-facing or a sales role. I wanted a hybrid role that included the best of both worlds.
- The courses and bootcamps offered in the tech industry were either too technical and jargon-filled or lacked sufficient depth.
- I didn't have insider tips or the right resources to stand out as a candidate in Product Owner interviews.
To become more skilled at the Product Owner role, I went down the rabbit hole to understand what it takes to build successful products from the inside out. I interviewed thought-leaders within the industry. I learned about the behaviors and habits of successful product owners. Empowered with this knowledge, I received many job interviews at top tier companies and startups.
Within 5 years, I went from a complete newbie to an award-winning Product Owner.
I created the One Week Product Owner course so that no one else had to go through the painful experience that I went through to have a successful product owner career.
One Week Product Owner was created for aspiring product managers or people who want to learn agile product management skills. In this course, I teach: fundamentals of agile product management, how to create your business model, how to validate your ideas, scrum foundations, team dynamics, stakeholder management, how to answer product owner interview questions, and how to stand out in the recruiting process to land a product owner job.
"To be successful as a product owner, you need to learn fundamental agile product development skills. Over my career, I’ve helped hundreds of people learn agile product development and break into a product role. I’ve compiled and refined everything I’ve learned into this One Week Product Owner course to put you on the fast track towards success."
“As someone who really related to this module, I found it very enjoyable. Similar feedback to the previous module, I am not sure exactly the stress on the PO to action things from this module, but I still loved learning about the different validation options.”
- Nicole Bianchi, Technical Product Owner
The top three benefits I experienced from learning this material are 1) Scrum discipline 2) Value of creating a business model, and 3) story point estimation. I anticipated that the material would be more theoretical - however, the practical examples and capstone projects have been very concrete. My biggest aha moment was in understanding how to write user stories and manage epics.
- Mona Iwamoto, Data Science Product Leader
I thought it was going to be very technical, but I actually enjoyed more of the lecture and being able to use some of the examples as well as the business model canvas and some of the frameworks and templates where I can relay it to my current role and actions that I'm taking today.
