For organisations / Product Management

Align your Product teams to fuel your growth

Build the right Product Management capabilities to capitalise on digital investments and drive transformation.

What’s the cost of doing nothing?

Organisations invest an average of $1-$2 million into Product teams annually.

However, 40-80% of products fail either by never making it to the market or not meeting their key objectives and results once launched.

That is up to $1.6 million of wasted investment per organisation annually, resulting in failed transformations and unmet strategic objectives.

Turn Product into an engine of growth

Product management is the function that guides every step of a product’s lifecycle by focusing on the product and its customers.

The best Product teams work in lock step to spearhead transformation and guide activities that prepare their organisation for growth. Importantly, they routinely ship better-designed products that perform exceptionally well. When they’re not aligned, Product teams lack the processes, frameworks and mindsets to link their output to broader business objectives.

Every learner receives an industry-recognised product management certification and digital badge to showcase their new capabilities.

Get this critical function right with Product Management training that leverages a real organisational project and delivers an industry-leading learning experience.

Frequently asked questions

What is product management - and how does it drive business growth?

Product management is an organisational function that guides every step of a product’s lifecycle — from development to positioning and pricing — by focusing on the product and its customers first and foremost.

High-performing product management teams help organisations achieve business goals, such as entering new markets, selling more to existing customers, changing customer behaviour or winning business from competitors.

How does Academy Xi design upskilling and reskilling programs to deliver a higher return on investment, faster?

We work closely with our clients as collaborative partners to identify and design around learning pillars that are essential to product maturity.

We work with you to understand where your capability gaps are, design a product management course that hones in on and addresses these gaps and continuously measure for impact, not just learner engagement.

What kind of product management certification do learners receive?

On successful completion of our Product Management training, every learner will be issued an industry-recognised certificate in Product Management. We encourage learners to share their verified credential on LinkedIn to promote their newly acquired skills and to support their organisation’s commitment to upskilling.
