    How to Learn Product: Series Kick-off

    How to Learn Product: Series Kick-off

    Product is not a degree you can get in school and is typically learned best by “doing.” It is a hard area to break into, though, because you have to have product experience to get a role, however, you can’t get product experience before your role. And it can get lonelier the higher up you go — knowing what is best for running product teams is always a challenge. 
    This is why our next series is focused on ‘how to learn product.’  We heard your questions and we want answers just like you. This series you can expect to go back to school (kind of). We will cover topics ranging from what makes a good product manager to how to actually break into the space. 
    If you have specific questions you want to make sure we address on this series or another upcoming one, join our growing community at betterproduct.community.

Love the idea of this podcast...

I think more real life use cases of product success would be cool. Also would like to hear about internal user products (ie sales tools, site analytics/data lakes, etc).

Fun hosts and good insights! ,

Great!

Great insights and enjoyable hosts!
