Focus: Strategic Product Planning

Focus teaches you how to find the opportunities in the market’s problems.  Learn to score potential strategies objectively and identify where the company’s strengths intersect with what the market values.  Then use market data to successfully and credibly sell these strategies internally.

At the end of each module, attendees have the opportunity to earn certification.
