My road to being a Senior Product Manager at Microsoft had been full of unexpected challenges, and I have been forced many times to search for additional resources to help me deal with them. Sadly, there had been some aspects of the position that no course or book could have prepared me for, and this is exactly where this course comes in.
Don't get me wrong. My efforts have resulted in gaining great theoretical and basic knowledge. However, no one has ever told me how to deal with an ineffective team, how to find the right data to perform analyses, or even the basics – what character features actually make a great product manager.
Thus, I have created this course. In the 11 hours of the core material with 3 hours of bonus classes, I will teach you about the position itself but also, I will provide you with practical solutions on how to deal with different setbacks that I had to find out the hard way.
After completing this course, you will be well prepared to:
manage any IT product,
choose the best improvements for it, and make them a reality with your team,
envision the product's growth for many years to come,
build a great product road map,
change your stale development team into a well-oiled, highly effective machine,
find great ideas for your product and support them with the right data,
excel in planning an A/B test for any product change and be able to understand its effects,
become a great spokesman,
conduct engaging meetings and make them highly effective,
complete any product management certification. This course provides a certificate as well upon completion!
and many more!
With my unique background of 9 years in creating IT products for recruiters and having made a difficult, long journey to a Product Manager, I am qualified to tell you exactly who to replicate this transition. With my recruitment-oriented chapter, I will take you through the whole process of planning your career, starting with building an ideal CV and a LinkedIn profile. I will guide you on how to perform at your best on your potential job interview and start a new product manager position with a BANG.
I will also tell you how to successfully launch your own Product and gain first-hand experience in Product Management. This project will help you put all the skills I have given you into the right context and will highly enrich your CV - so that you can land your next dream job easier!
The course is accompanied by a dedicated Discord channel where I am happy to take follow-up questions and feedback that I will attend to daily. I am also to your ongoing disposition on LinkedIn chat. Apart from this, I offer brand-new bonus classes on the YouTube channel Product's digest where I talk about best product management practices and review different product-related articles and stories so that you could easily tell a helpful source from a waste of your time. A new video, meant as yet another bonus class, is posted each week!
You are ambitious, full of energy and dreams, but also in need of guidance, right? I have been there, too. This course is built in a way that will make your journey easier than mine was. By making use of my knowledge and best practices, I hope you will develop your career quicker than I, and who knows, maybe one day we will meet in the halls of Microsoft's office and shake hands.
I am fondly looking forward to that!
Finally - this course is my product. I curate it on an ongoing basis and with every week, every change I make and every feedback I receive, it simply becomes better and better!

"I have already rated the course on Udemy, it was a 5 star from me (both, for content and for the instructor) Improvement suggestions? I would say we need to see more cameos from the cat So, having said that, I think it is time that Bart gets his own review. I've taken a few udemy courses (on different subjects), and I have had some great instructors. A lot of them make themselves available to answer questions related to the subject, or they have TAs that do that for you. However, this is the first course that has a unique personalized touch. Bart goes above and beyond with just answering questions on the material he provides - the CV reviews and other advise he provides, not only help you take that next step in your career, but it also makes you feel truly supported. That was my experience, and now I landed my job. Thanks Bart, and I hope to see many more of your students attain their goals. Oh, an Happy New Year!!! Let's go 2022!"
"As someone who starts off many courses but doesn't finish them, getting this certificate speaks volumes about the quality knowledge this course provides. Bart Jaworski, Ph.D., thanks a ton for this really practical course, which helps us get a small dose of what to expect as a product manager. I really enjoyed every single video and a shoutout to how much effort you have put behind them. I'm looking forward to continuing this journey and interacting with the great community building around this course."
"A special thanks to Bart Jaworski, Ph.D., as he played a critical role as a mentor. His course on product management is beneficial for other professionals in other verticals as well. The modules like User Personas, Being Data-Driven, How to divide your tasks, and deal with your mistakes at work were very helpful. They played an essential part in my conversion from an intern to FTE."
"Couple of week back, Bart Jaworski, Ph.D. offered me a chance to check out his newly launced course on Udemy. As an aspiring PM, I wanted to know about the details that go in the background of Product Management. Thus I enrolled in this course and after completing, I have realised that the course is really helpful when it comes to covering not only over the surface level details of Product Management, but also the internal aspects like Communication with Stakeholders and Developing from an Idea to Product in a profound manner.
The course is just the beginning of my journey and I would hope to transition into the field of Product Management sooner or later.
Once again, thank you Bart Jaworski, Ph.D. for this course and your quick doubt solving through either Udemy platform or Discord channel."
