Understanding the market and the problems it faces is key to creating and marketing products people want to buy. Foundations teaches you how to listen to the market, and then guide decisions, prioritize projects and drive results using the market knowledge you gain. It’s also a prerequisite for every other Pragmatic product course.

Attend Foundations and learn how to:

Get everyone on the same page.

Pragmatic Framework helps teams speak the same language, better understand roles and responsibilities and collaborate more effectively.

Tune into the market.

Stop talking about your opinion and start talking about your market. Learn practical techniques to identify the entire market, truly listen to it and become its messenger.

What do our customers have to say about our training?
I highly recommend the Pragmatic Institute team as probably one of the best resources for product managers and marketers available today. Great program if you have a chance to participate in one of their courses, but also a lot of great information on how to do pretty much anything that's important to build, launch and market products (and services) successfully. Their strategic and tactical framework is one of the best 'crutches' available.

It's too easy to be sucked into the vortex of day-to-day tactical and never implement the things you believe will improve the business. This is your wake-up call and practical toolkit and roadmap to guide and empower your efforts.

The Foundations and Launch courses were complete game changers. They had a profound impact not only on how I take products to market but my approach to Product Management per se.

A Practical Approach to Products

People aren’t buying your products. And no matter how much time, effort or money you invest in building and marketing those products, the reason is often the same: You’ve listened to the wrong people. It's time to implement a pragmatic, outside-in approach to building and marketing products that sell.

Pragmatic Institute courses are offered all around the world.
