Very insightful and quite practical. Easy to understand but can be broken down in more simpler terms so that newbies in product management can have a proper understanding

I appreciated the interview preparation in this course, especially the Amazon and Google mock interviews. As with all the other courses in this specialization, the peer graded assignments were helpful to reinforce concepts learned through the videos. Nancy and AWIP, thanks for developing these courses. I look forward to applying the knowledge I have gained in the real world.

I got Product Management certification by finishing Real-World Product Management Specialization that was prepared and lead by Nancy Wang, a Head of Product at Amazon (AWS), who also was a Product Manager at Google and is a CEO and Founder of Advancing Women in Product (AWIP). Nancy shares her knowledge gained throughout her career in those extremely successful companies.

The specialization is a combo of 4 courses to learn product management from different perspectives: customer obsession, market sizing, competitive analyses, success metrics (like KPIs, OKRs, North Stars, A/B/n tests, NPS, CSAT, CES, cohort analyses, LTV, pricing, and financials), etc.

The big advantage of this course is it helps you to create your own portfolio through studying all 4 courses by developing your own product using real-life PM tasks during product management lifecycle from inception till launch. Each task takes about an hour. This work is peer-reviewed and you get real feedback. Even though it is quite time-consuming to do those practical assignments and peer review assignments of other students, it helps to get practical knowledge and learn things by doing, which is especially extremely important for folks who want a transition to a PM role and have no real experience yet.

Another advantage is that you get trained using real PM interview questions. Nancy shares questions from giants like Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft and helps to master their Behavioral, Product Design, Strategy, Estimation, and Technical interview questions.

Also, it was super useful to listen to interviews and panels that Nancy did with successful senior Product Managers and Leaders in Product where they shared their experience, insights, and tips for PM career, things they are looking for in PM candidates.

On top of that Nancy shares great sources for networking to advance your career as a Product Manager.

I highly recommend every Product Manager to take this up!!

Thank you to Nancy Wang and the rest of #AWIP for putting this course together!

I learned so much that I am excited to take into my current and future roles.

I could sense the genuine attempt to virtually mentor and prepare the learners for interviews at a level so granular , I was pathetic at networking and the emphasize given here to consciously build that network methodically has built confidence in me that I can improve on it for sure and it isn't something that is beyond me and my nature. The webinar and Sandy carter's talk did open up a lot of perspectives.

Again , my sincere thanks to Nancy Wang and Team for putting this together for learners like me. Enjoyed the whole journey through this specialisation , now challenge is on me for how I am going to use to improve my every day work and career path.

If I can change one thing , I would have liked access to this video and materials even post course completion for easy reference.

Another issue , I am facing and per the discussion forum many like me are facing is the time it takes to get an assignment reviewed in uncertain and the fear of that impacting the subscription expiry time costing us an additional month is more. right now I have completed everything but waiting for grading while my subscription expires tomorrow and the support team is no easy to access

I highly recommend this course as it has loads of great content, interviews and exercises that are directly applicable to Product Management. I would recommend this course to those that are already familiar with PM as it draws from people’s experience rather then setting on the theory of Product Management with all the possible things you could be doing in that role.

The last module is for those looking to break into the PM role at one of the big tech companies. Amazing practical content throughout! Thank you, Nancy!

It was a very useful experience for me, the course is great for beginners in product management.

I think it would be great if you added information about customer support, SLA, SLO, etc. And a little bit about monitoring and writing postmortems - these are two of my favorite topics, but it would be great to learn how it is done in the best companies in the world.

The content in these 4 courses is unrivalled in the breadth and depth of knowledge they offer. Nancy presents theory approaches to PMing, mixed with the right level of Technical information for this level - and at every opportunity presents real-life case studies (often from guest PM speakers!) to really bring the courses to life. Couldn't recommend more!

Fantastic course! i have more clear understanding of the interview process .Now i have clear understanding of the technical required for the Product Manager (the certification path showed in the video). Also was very interesting the last part of course about the Customer Proxies and metrics, a very beatiful topic.

Very useful insights about how to pass product management typical questions. This kind of questions can also be asked in other context, so I think that on a HR point of view, this course can be precious and help people pass different types of interviews

Really like the great job done by Nancy Wang in putting together these courses and her interviews with other product folks from different companies to give us insights on how to get into product management or how to get better at it.
