Course Syllabus

Product Strategy

The most effective products start with a comprehensive market-based, insight-driven strategy. Identify the right problems to solve through market research, target user definition, and market sizing. Create a compelling vision and strategy that will set up the team to solve those problems. Understand how to communicate effectively to get people excited and invested in your ideas.

Pitch Product Vision

Act as a product manager for one of four top technology companies and develop a compelling pitch for the development of a new product. Based on the provided bsiness scenario of the company you choose, perform primary and secondary marekt research to identify target users and size the market opportunity for a new product. Compile your analysis into a pitch deck, and present the vision of your product to business stakeholders.

Product Design

Take an idea through concept, design, and user validation phases, and create a spec to handoff to Engineering for development. Use design-thinking methodologies to explore various ideas, and then converge on a single idea. Map out the full concept through creation of a prototype that can be used to validate that you're solving a problem for real users.

Run a Design Sprint

Take a problem/opportunity (using work from the previous course) through a Design Sprint. During the Design Sprint, explore multiple ideas, narrow down ideas to the most compelling one, create a storyboard and prototype, conduct user research, refine ideas, and incorporate findings into a final product spec.

Product Development

Learn the critical soft skills needed to manage the development and execution phase of the product. Collaborate with cross-functional teams and stakeholders to guide them through planning and execution. Manage stakeholder expectations and handle risks that arise, reprioritizing feature and sprint priorities to tackle competing requests.

Manage the Product Development Process

Compile a sprint backlog with a clearly defined sprint goal that reflects the prioritized user stories and detailed acceptance criteria. Refine the solution by leveraging API documentation. Then, create a coordination activities map and handle competing priorities ranging from reported production issues and resource constraints, to stakeholder feedback and requests that come up during product development.

Product Launch

Create a plan, identify the launch risks, and figure out how to minimize their impact on your launch. Collaborate with a variety of teams including Marketing, Sales, Customer Support, and more to prepare them to interface with customers as the product is launched. Execute the launch and use feedback from your customers to determine the next steps for your product.

Deliver a Product to Market

Take the product you have developed in the earlier courses and bring it to market. Create a pre-launch process, including identification of launch risks and mitigations. Develop a marketing and pricing strategy, and create collateral to prepare the Sales and Customer Support teams to evangelize the product. Use customer feedback to design an A/B test for a new product feature.

    ” from the outside, the curriculum looked pretty comprehensive . with that said, you have to know that courses like these should only be thought of as starting points – they help identify which direction to take to increase your knowledge of the subject matter.

    so far, i’d say the udacity platform itself is well made and I don’t mind the videos being hosted on YouTube, especially since i’m not paying for it yet (1 month free trial). the only thing i’ve found to be annoying so far is the course instructor so far – he’s very dry and robotic, kind of like zuck (which isn’t a compliment).”

    “What I liked the most would have to be the shortness of the learning videos, hence making it as interesting as possible, because too much can get boring. Something that also stood out for me would be the scenarios that were used, how real and relatable they were.

    You get professional support for building up your CV and the professional account on LinkedIn and GitHub. Udacity itself sends the CV of its fresh graduates to their partner companies.

    For me would be the incorrectness of some of the transcripts, and a difficult accent to understand by one of the instructors. I also definitely think the course is quite pricey, and might not have been able to afford the whole thing if it wasn’t fully paid for by my company.”

    I like the programm, especially that it is divided in this short chapters which you can go through easily as it fits to the schedule. The project assignments are interesting and the feedback is very valuable. I just completed the first project and have already learnt a lot of new methods and tools!
