Product Success through Professional Product Management
Excellent product management is key to a successful market entry and the basis for sustainable success of products.
This is particularly true for software and internet offerings where product managers enjoy a unique degree of flexibility – from the definition of the product itself to the choice of distribution and payment models.
The International Software Product Management Association (ISPMA), has established an internationally recognized training curriculum and certification.
This training teaches state-of-the art practices for planning and executing product management activities. Novices receive a comprehensive introduction to software product management. Experienced product managers get the opportunity to reflect their current practices, and to optimize the balance between short-term and long-term product management activities.
Participants will be prepared for the ISPMA certification exam Certified Software Product Manager (CSPM), Foundation Level.
