Just-In-Time Deep Dives
Why You Need Just-in-Time Learning
As your career in product management accelerates, you become a leader to others in the organization. Regardless of title and any level of real authority you have, your growing influence and success makes you a leader.
As you lead, you'll encounter new problems and areas where you need to deepen your knowledge.
You already have a solid foundation in product management and innovation knowledge, from Building Your Base and Earning Professional Certification. This equips you to navigate many situations. Yet, there will be times you need to gain new skills, such as...
- Learning a new tool or process that is becoming popular,
- Coaching a teammate in an area you are less familiar with,
- Adjusting your innovation strategy and process to a change in organization strategy,
- Preparing for a new level of growth,
- Applying different market research techniques,
- and numerous other situations.
This is where just-in-time deep dives are useful. This is training focused on specific topics to help you know what you need quickly and easily. Much of the training is provided by partners. This allows us to connect you with experts in their area, bringing you insights when you need them.
