What do our customers have to say about our training?
I highly recommend the Pragmatic Institute team as probably one of the best resources for product managers and marketers available today. Great program if you have a chance to participate in one of their courses, but also a lot of great information on how to do pretty much anything that's important to build, launch and market products (and services) successfully. Their strategic and tactical framework is one of the best 'crutches' available.

Polished and efficient. Good mixture of case studies, material and presentation skills. I appreciated having a paper version of the presentation. I like to take notes on everything and this made it possible to document everything I wanted to, even at the brisk pace (appropriate) of the lecture.

Super training, very high quality. I feel like I can easily articulate what I learned, and look forward to implementing these ideas in my work. I have been with my current company for seven years and haven't felt jazzed up about my job in ages; now I can't wait to get in there on Monday. The casual format is really condusive to learning as the dialogs, questions and conversations were full of value. Loved it!

If only I had received this training when I joined product management, it would have helped me be more efficient. An eye-opener on what product management should be.
