"If you want to be challenged by colleagues from the industry and dare to bring yourself to the next level of knowledge and skills, I found Berkeley the place to be! The amount of strategic and practical new insights was mind-boggling. The data-driven approach to product in combination with the qualitative techniques has helped me a lot in bringing my applicable knowledge to the next level"
"There's no question in my mind about the value of this program. The insight and understanding I received as a result of attending and engaging will more than pay for itself in my daily office activities. I expect this to appear in the form of process improvements, time-value allocation and better customer understanding."
“I have been interviewing customers for a few years now, first as a UX Designer and now in a more specialized customer research role. This course helped me refine my approach, by applying a thoughtful structure to my customer interviews and informing choices I used to make based on instinct and best guesses. This class was immediately applicable. What I learned in the classroom on Thursday morning I was able to apply later in the afternoon both as a practitioner and as a manager.”
"The Product Management program is an in depth, comprehensive, and practical treatment of product management. This program has equipped me with ready-to-use knowledge required to either work as a product manager or work closely with product managers. I have already started applying several concepts I learned in competitive strategy, customer focused product design and team negotiations as we are defining the next major version of our product."
"This program exceeded my expectations. I was really really happy with it --- I learned a lot from the onset. The class allowed me to articulate my ideas. There is a lot of pitching in my job, and the storytelling framework was really valuable for me as someone working in a big enterprise."
"Customer Obsessed Design for Product Management has given me a fresh perspective and a new set of tools I can start using in my role as a product manager. In particular, the strong focus on ethnographic interviewing, sensemaking, and customer-centric roadmapping has helped me structure my work moving forward."
