Product Management Collaboration for Stakeholders

Making Your Transformation Stick

Congrats! Your organization has successfully begun its transformation – you’ve implemented new product processes and hurdled the shift from “feature factory-minded” to outcome-obsessed.  

Your Product Managers have never been more in synch.  

Even so, as new improvements disrupt old workflows, stakeholders working alongside Product Managers can feel left behind by process changes. As collaboration stalls, product leaders can struggle to continue progress with the larger team. The Product Management Collaboration for Stakeholders (PMCS) course guides non-Product Manager professionals on navigating a mutually beneficial relationship with their product teams. The concepts taught in this class align stakeholders to your company’s new product processes and demonstrate opportunities for all stakeholders to better partner with Product Managers, increasing transformation adoption from the entire organization. 

This interactive instructor-led course provides stakeholders with the knowledge and tools to work effectively alongside their Product Managers. Attendees will leave the class with a clear understanding of your Product Management process, its importance to their role, and a plan for how they can engage and collaborate with Product Management to help drive successful products and company outcomes.

  • Companies that empower Product Managers are 50% faster to market

A large insurance provider partnered with 280 Group in response to suffering significant losses in products and profitability:  

  • After training over 300 of their Product Managers to develop a consistent product process, their IT department stakeholders struggled to align with the new methodology. Once the IT team gained knowledge and understanding of the Product Managers’ role and new product process, both teams were able to effectively collaborate together. The organization experienced a 60% reduction in estimation time, because of increased efficiency and data-driven approaches to Product Management and development team interactions.
