Why Product Management?

There is an extremely high demand for Product Managers

Every development team needs at least one Product Manager but in many cases (especially in Africa), most teams have none. It has now become a reality that to build products that work, Product Management is key, hence the surge in demand for PMs. In the US alone, there are more than 100,000 PM roles that go unfilled for several months. As technology continue to advance and the need for tech solution increases, the need for product managers also increases

Paying or not?

PM is a highly rewarding career

A report by Hiring trends in the US reveals that some of the highest paid employees in Silicon Valley are Product Managers. There is a sustained global demand for Product Managers and this has increased the value of Product Management and the general PM offerings. If you are already a business professional, Product Management is one of the few skills you can learn in few weeks and sporadically increase your current value and employability. 

Can I become a Product Manager?

Irrespective of your discipline and experience you can become an exceptional Product Manager

Whether you have a background in Engineering, Biological Sciences, Law, Marketing, Human resources management, Project management, Arts, Music or whatever field, you can become an amazing Product Manager with the the right resources, which this course provides.
