What PMs are Saying

Cohort members and hiring managers love the In the Lab program.

  • "In The Lab Product Management is precisely what every career transitioner needs. You walk into an autonomous role for your product build with the bonus of an expert a Slack message away. Emily cuts to the chase during her sessions. She provides honest advice with real-world examples of how the industry works while giving you the most critical aspects of each methodology and framework. The sessions alone give you the information and tools to get into the product manager mindset and avoid the various [paid] resources offering less for more."
