Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name's Eliska Que, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with Remote Product Management. I have been a product and project manager for over a decade, and I founded two eCommerce businesses here in Canada. Due to the pandemic, a lot of companies have either stopped operations or have moved to a remote work setup. They thought, as long as you have internet and access to the usual tools that they use in the office, everything will work out fine. But that's not the case at all. This course will help you adapt to the remote work lifestyle or get you prepared if you want to pursue working for a remote company. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understanding the difference and dynamics between working in the office versus working from home, how to manage your team and your product, including how to work with multiple stakeholders, customers, or partners remotely, how to tweak the communication and collaboration tools and processes to fit this new work setup, and finally, we'll talk about the effects of working from home, including how it affects once mental health. By the end of this course, you'll know how to effectively perform your product management tasks from home. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the product management processes and sprint methodology for software development. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn about adapting to a work from home setup with the Getting Started with Remote Product Management course, at Pluralsight.
