As a product manager, we are asked to solve market problems that are aligned with our organization's strategic goals and objectives. Some of the major topics we'll cover include reviewing the role of the product manager and how they typically spend their time, understanding the external and internal business environment, including internal stakeholder needs, leading product definition with customer needs, and producing a mission, vision, and strategy presentation. By the end of this course, you'll be equipped with the skills and knowledge required to manage strategy and vision. Before beginning the course, I recommend becoming familiar with product management, business analysis, and project management.
