Becoming a more strategic product manager

Product management—done right—should span a healthy mix of the tactical and strategic. However, too many product managers get buried in the tactical and underinvest in the strategic. This course will help you, as a product manager, become more strategic. You’ll learn what work to say “yes” and “no” to and how to amplify your impact on your company and its long-term product portfolio.
