NEW Remote Workshop Format
In order to continue offering product management training in a safe environment for our attendees and trainers, we have devised a new interactive, remote workshop format.
July 20: 9:00am - 11:00am (2hrs) PDT
July 21: 9:00am - 11:00am (2hrs) PDT
July 22: no class
July 23: 9:00am - 11:00am (2hrs) PDT

This workshop is part of our #mtpcon Digital 2020 event, happening on 13-15 July (tickets sold separately).
Training Workshop Overview
We all know that we build better products when we get more exposure to our users, but how do we get the most out of our time and target our efforts more effectively?
This is a workshop for product managers who need, or want, to do their own user research/user experience testing – how to start, how to do it and then presenting back in a way likely to get people excited about the results rather than dreading them.
The day will be focused on learning techniques that you can start using immediately – so we’ll be looking at:
- Where to start: it’s easier than you think and we do it all the time in our day jobs
- Getting buy-in from those around you: including your user researchers if you have them
- Aligning research with business goals/objectives
- Choosing the right tool for the job (tools, methodologies, terminology, etc.)
You'll be taught by Steve Portigal, author of Doorbells, Danger, and Dead Batteries (read on for more info on Steve).
How does "remote" work?
To make it easier to digest in a remote format and allow for reflection between sessions, we have taken this incredibly valuable, tried and tested, one-day workshop and broken it into 4 bite-sized sections - just 120 minutes (2hrs) each .The content covered will be the same, although optimised for remote training, with group activities and collaboration throughout:
- There will be one session at the same time each day on 20th, 21st, 23rd, and 24th July - there will not be a session on Wednesday the 22nd
- The start time will be 9:00am PDT
- Each session will run for 2 hrs
- There will be pre-workhop activities and homework throughout the course
- We will be using Slack and Zoom as our primary tools
- Attendees will be divided into working groups for the sessions
- To participate successfully you will need a computer with a webcam, microphone, headphones, and a good internet connection
Please note: This workshop is split across multiple days and you must attend all parts
"I didn't feel like being remote took away from my experience. If anything, I think I prefer it. Class size and my classmates were great and I liked the instructor and the way he ran the workshop."
