About the content

An important part of being a product manager is overseeing the progress of the team and making decisions to ensure maximum value. It's essential to understand the basics of project management whether you are in a large company working with project managers or in a smaller startup where both the product management and project management fall on your shoulders.

One of the major challenges is making sure you do not start a project unless all of its parameters have been validated with the different stakeholders. We will, therefore, examine how to create a business case, conduct a feasibility study, and write a project charter.

We will explore the five phases of the project management lifecycle, which will show you how to create a project plan, execute against that plan, and monitor progress before closing the project.

We will look at task breakdown, how to estimate the costs of a project, and how to create a visual representation of a project's main delivery dates and milestones via Gantt.

You will be able to: 

  • Recognize the components of key project management frameworks, models, and methodologies.
  • Identify when to apply project management methodology within product management.
  • Explain how to identify and communicate with stakeholders.
  • Detail frameworks for carrying out feasibility studies.
  • Explain how to write a business case, a project charter, and a project plan.
  • Describe how to initiate and plan a project.
  • Calculate the cost of a project. 
  • Describe how to execute, monitor, and close a project.
