SPM – The Foundation

Being a software product manager is a tough job. You are the driver between the external market opportunities and the internal organizational units. You are a “mini CEO” responsible for managing the software business model with the objective of achieving sustainable success over the life cycle of your company’s products.

This 4-day training for software product managers will give you the tools to perform your job effectively, reduce the inherent stress of the job and help you make your company more successful.

The training provides a full review of the discipline of product management for software products including the management of software parts of software-intensive products, i.e. systems and services.

The training addresses the needs of people involved in software product management, including those that the product manager interfaces with, e.g. executive management, marketing and sales, research and development, operations, service and support.

The training, which is based on the curriculum developed by the International Software Products Management Association (ISPMA), V.2.0, covers all areas of the SPM Framework:
