This four-week cohort will be led by @JohnJohnson, Assistant Director at the University of Maryland, and the creator of Modern Product Leadership and Applied Scrum for Agile Project Management, two of Class Central’s Best Courses of All Time. You can enroll here.
In this Cohort, you will have the rare opportunity to learn directly from John Johnson over weekly Zoom sessions, and discuss with learners worldwide. We’re going to take his course on Modern Product Leadership on edX. The Cohort is geared toward learners currently in, or aspiring to, leadership positions.
The Cohort starts on February 14th. It’s free and open to everyone. Enroll here.
Modern Product Leadership
This course starts by resetting on what is good leadership based on actual data and studies, from envisioning a product strategy to correctly portraying the product roadmap. One of the key findings is that a leader’s success is driven by their team, and how well that team aligns with the mission.
We’ll also discuss the art of negotiating across departments and interests, and how to manage conflicts to resolution quickly through good leadership and problem solving. Finally, we’ll turn to frameworks for organizing teams at multiple scales of product development.
Here are some of the topics we’ll cover and skills you’ll gain:
- Product leadership as modern leadership
- Building and motivating the team
- Team processes, events, and the art of the demo
- Conflict management and resolution techniques for speed and effectiveness
- Product evangelism and communicating with data across the enterprise
- Discovering and delivering products at scale
This experience will be powered by Class Central Cohorts, our social learning platform for open courses. There are more Cohorts starting soon. You can find all the Cohorts here. Come learn with us!
