Stuck In A Feature Factory
In the past, I have felt stuck in my comfort zone & realised I needed to learn & develop my skills as a Product Manager.
To really experience what building product from start to revenue was really like.
In previous roles, I had usually become frustrated - stuck in a Feature Factory just pushing features that didn’t make sense - and used that as an excuse to stop learning.
At times, I felt my career was not progressing.
Hands-On & Practical
The Prod MBA really changed this for me.
The hands-on, practical nature of the programme, combining good theory with pushing you to put theory into practice every single week, was so refreshing - and really powerful.
You’re really pushed to get through each stage of the product process - even when you’re doubting your idea - building your resilience & confidence along the journey.
Generating Real Revenue
When my product actually generated revenue in Week 6, I realised how much I had progressed!
I realised I was able to take something from start to finish in 6-8 weeks & achieve my initial goal of creating a revenue-generating product - whilst learning some new skills along the way.
Continuing My Journey
Since finishing the programme, I’ve become a lot more aware of needing to work in the right environment to develop my skills so I can maximise my impact - and share those skills with others on my teams.
I am also continuing to work on my personalised coaching service to see where it leads & to continue building my product skills!
