Learn how to conduct interviews, develop a problem space, and write documentation (from one-pagers to PRDs to Amazon's PR FAQs). Then learn how to scope your MVP, design it, and how to bring it to market.
If you love your product build and you want to keep working on it, the concept and code belongs to you and your team.
In the Lab's program gives you tools to learn and then opportunities to apply the learning. We spend 2 hours each week together going over a core product manager concept, including a collaborative exercise. Outside this synchonous session, you're on your own to do the weekly "homework" and meet with your team on your product build activities.
Total weekly time committment is between 4 and 6 hours for about 13 weeks.
In the Lab runs 3 times per year
At this time, In the Lab costs $0 for cohort participants.
If you're willing and able to financially chip in, we accept donations through our Ko-Fi .
