Product Management is one of the most versatile and interesting occupations in the digital world. In addition, it is among the most demanding, as it combines three very different areas of knowledge - technical, business and methodological knowledge.
Regardless of experience, there is almost no Product Manager who is equally skilled in all three areas. Therefore, there is often a need for a technical Product Owner, who would primarily work with the development team and focus on completing the defined features, as well as the need for a Business Product Manager, who would deal with the market, product growth & new features.

"Agile methodology, scrum, and kanban framework are buzz words at the moment, and everyone in the business world likes to use them, invest money and resources in various (often unnecessarily extensive) educations. Many also train others without really understanding the direct application in everyday business. The approach of the Product District lecturers is completely different, with very concise lessons with clear examples and exercises from their rich experience. There were no unanswered questions, but everything was explained and argued. I have ten years of experience in traditional project management, so I did not ask easy questions"
"Sincere recommendations for the course because the group is not more than ten people and the lecturers have time to dedicate to each of them individually and answer any doubts related to the material. Also, learning is not just a theory, but you will have group workshops where you can learn a lot from colleagues as we all look at it from different angles."
"As for the Product Management course, I can say that I have gained an excellent base for upgrading, for something I never had the opportunity to get acquainted with before coming to the first class. I learned firsthand how the Product Owner business works and the differences between the Product Manager and Project Manager jobs. I have learned enough terminology to understand and engage in conversation with someone who does this job. A good atmosphere could be felt at any hour. The lecturer selflessly shared his knowledge and made everyone happy with what they heard, saw, and tried to do through exercises and tasks."
"Excellent education that provides a lot of practical and applicable knowledge about Product management and the IT industry in general, tech and business. The greatest value of this course, in my opinion, was the practical work and simulations through which you can get an idea of what Agile, Scrum, and Product management are and how they work, how to work in ideal conditions, but also in conditions when unforeseen challenges arise. An excellent lecturer with a lot of experience and knowledge that he is ready to share. And finally, in addition to providing a lot of knowledge and skills, this is definitely one of those educations that keeps enthusiasm and motivation to learn all the time."
"The concept of education is well designed and implemented. The most outstanding value is that we adopted practical knowledge about Agile methodologies by simulating specific situations and projects and got a broader picture and a basis for further training. Education helped me find a new job and identify the direction in which I want to build a further career."
