Understanding the market and the problems it faces is key to creating and marketing products people want to buy. Foundations teaches you how to listen to the market, and then guide decisions, prioritize projects and drive results using the market knowledge you gain. It’s also a prerequisite for every other Pragmatic product course.

Attend Foundations and learn how to:

Get everyone on the same page.

Pragmatic Framework helps teams speak the same language, better understand roles and responsibilities and collaborate more effectively.

Tune into the market.

Stop talking about your opinion and start talking about your market. Learn practical techniques to identify the entire market, truly listen to it and become its messenger.

What do our customers have to say about our training?

While I have heard many of the general ideas before from more experienced product managers, I love hearing it clearly laid out step by step. I always leave a course excited to take back the tools and methodologies to my company! Thank you. If I can't get my company to pay for the remaining courses, I intend to pay for them myself.

A Practical Approach to Products

People aren’t buying your products. And no matter how much time, effort or money you invest in building and marketing those products, the reason is often the same: You’ve listened to the wrong people. It's time to implement a pragmatic, outside-in approach to building and marketing products that sell.

Pragmatic Institute courses are offered all around the world.
