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.

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?
Super training, very high quality. I feel like I can easily articulate what I learned, and look forward to implementing these ideas in my work. I have been with my current company for seven years and haven't felt jazzed up about my job in ages; now I can't wait to get in there on Monday. The casual format is really condusive to learning as the dialogs, questions and conversations were full of value. Loved it!

I've taken a few of the courses at Pragmatic Institute and LOVED them! You gave me a framework that I could use to take back some of the power of my position at work. In a few short years, I turned from the one who wasn't really sure into the one who was considered the best of the group. I owe that all to the courses I took from Pragmatic Institute.

EXTREMELY beneficial class. I recently stepped into a product management role, as opposed to the professional services team, and this greatly helps align the goal of my role at the company.

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.
