Welcome to the 7-Day Product Career Accelerator 🎉 — our free email series walking you through the core steps to fast-tracking your path from Product Manager to product leadership.
This series is just a taste of the in-depth concepts, frameworks, and actionable tips we get you to put into practice by building a real product from zero to revenue as part of our Prod MBA bootcamp.
But, it’s a great first step to help you take action on getting un-stuck with your product career (and if you’re ready to dive deeper today, read until the end to download our free top-of-category product book 👀).
Here’s what to expect over the next 7 days:
Day 1: Why Your Product Career Is Stuck
This is the foundation. If you understand the 3 common mistakes almost all Product Managers face that keep them stagnant & frustrated in their careers, you can start to move ahead of the crowd.
Day 2: The Surprising Secret to Getting Unstuck
We think that years of experience determine whether you get promoted or get that new role you interviewed for. Yet years of experience are just a proxy - a substitute - for something else.
We’ll help you take action on the ONE thing that really has an impact in getting you un-stuck - and successfully getting your dream role.
Day 3: Product Success Starts With The Right Problem
Fast-tracking your product career ultimately comes down to delivering impact with the products you build.
Whether you work on an existing product, or are building a new one, you need to understand one of the 3 Pillars of Product Success:
Pillar 1? Mastering the subtle art of identifying the right, acute problem to solve — something most product leaders surprisingly get very wrong.
Day 4: Why Does Your Product Really Exist?
Product discovery & exploring problems is all well & good, but how do we not just jump into building the wrong solution?
It’s essential to understand how to operate as a truly effective, inspiring product leader. That starts with deeply understanding - and being able to communicate - a compelling product vision to make sure you build the right product, as well as align your teams effectively.
Day 5: 3 tips for building a truly unique, valuable product
Products fail because they fail to differentiate.
Conversely, the most successful products do not follow convention. They look at new, entirely different ways of doing things in order to escape the competition.
We’ll delve into the topic of how to uncover not only a unique product offer, but one that users actually value, looking at some real case studies of product strategy done right.
Day 6: Why you should forget the competition
Traditional MBAs & many product leaders teach that we should obsess over the competition.
This advice is completely wrong.
Instead, we’ll explain why you should forget the competition & use a new, effective framework - the MVO - to define, validate & communicate a winning product strategy without building a thing.
Day 7: Re-launching yourself as a true product leader
Whether you like it or not, you are a product. You need to be positioned & sold like any other product.
We’ll teach you the 3 key elements of positioning you as a compelling product leader — and push you to get un-stuck & start thriving in your product career.
