The Product Management Program ExperienceDr. Sara Beckman, who has led the program for nine years, constantly updates the program to reflect the latest research. Along with all program faculty, she maintains a consulting practice, to stay up-to-date on current issues facing companies like yours.
Prior to the program, we survey your colleagues at work to create your specific organization's Innovation Capabilities Report, a diagnostic tool which will help you tune your product development capabilities and bring them to their full potential. Via our program website, you’ll engage in a short series of exercises, and will receive individual feedback before you arrive at the program.
During the program, you will benefit from world-class professors and practitioners who are cutting edge in their respective fields--design thinking, customer-focused design, competitive strategy, business model generation, influence without authority, team management, pricing, and customer insights.
You will participate in a series of hands-on exercises and simulations to ensure that knowledge gets put to work in your organization. You will also be matched with peer coaches with complementary backgrounds to yours, helping you leverage the intelligence and experience of your colleagues while building your network.
By the end of the program, you will have a personal action plan to address what you have learned during the week.
Transcending Day to Day Firefighting and Driving StrategyIt is easy to succumb to the “tyranny of the inbox”, and many product managers find themselves in a reactive role, rather than the creative, high-value strategic role that attracted them to the profession. During your week with us, we’ll help you tone down the daily firefight, and move your impact upstream where you can differentiate your product and service offerings from your competition. This is also the path to meaningful and rewarding career opportunities for you.

Quinlan School of Business (LUC)
As budgets get smaller, deadlines get tighter, and projects get more complex, organizations that employ formally trained project managers are rewarded with immediate savings in time and money. Without formal training, individuals must develop their own processes for managing projects through trial and error, leading to inefficient outcomes and use of resources. Effective project management involves building and managing teams, controlling costs, developing timelines, managing risk, meeting deadlines, and solving problems to bring projects in on time and on budget.
