Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Dave Mason, and welcome to my course, Exploring Positioning Product Metrics. I'm a director of product management and formerly a management consultant specializing in analytics. Trying to manage a product without metrics to guide you is a bit like trying to fly a plane blindfolded. In this course, we're going to explore how to define the right metrics for your product and use them to inform the decisions you're making in your role as the product manager. Some of the major topics that we will cover include defining metrics that align with your mission, vision, and strategy, how to define metrics that are actionable, developing an approach to experimentation, and how to run validation and usability tests. By the end of this course, you'll have the tools and techniques that you need to analyze where your product is succeeding and failing and how to identify the next initiative you need to work on using data to guide you. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the role of the product manager. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how metrics can be your product superpower with the Exploring Positioning Product Metrics course, at Pluralsight.
