Slides from the 'Essentials of Product Management' workshop at General Assembly in London, June 2013

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

The first step in making an idea reality is to understand product management. There is a huge amount of work between the idea stage and the coding stage, and this Saturday workshop will help you understand what needs to be accomplished.

We will start the day off by learning what the product management role encompasses and what the managing process is like. We'll also cover a product's feasibility and the various stages of—and ways to approach—the product development process. Through group work and hands-on practice, we'll look at the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) philosophy to test and validate your plans, and move on to identify the other more technical tools needed to start and evaluate the building process.

TAKEAWAYS

Part 1: The Product Manager role & the Product Management Process
Part 2: The Customer and MVP

- Learn to break an idea into its primary parts to assess product feasibility
- Explain the purpose and process of building an MVP
- Identify various ways to build and learn from an MVP
- Evolve an MVP to reach product/market fit
- Determine if product/market fit has been achieved for a product
