Product Management or being a Product Manager is a multifaceted role. It involves active participation and ownership of the product from its inception and incubation to the final launch and marketing of the same.

Here are a few excerpts from a hearty conversation with one such learner, Malvika Sahu, a senior lead for Analytics and Research at Fidelity Investments

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE THE PRODUCT MANAGEMENT DOMAIN FOR UPSKILLING?

For the last 8+ years, I have been working as a Data analyst, 6.5 years of which have been at my current organization. Here, I have worked very closely with the Business/Product owners to identify, define & measure business opportunities using data. I felt I was at that place in my career where I needed to expand my skill set and learn about Product development. I wanted to be able to have intelligent conversations & provide inputs into Product development strategy for my organization

WHAT WAS YOUR UPSKILLING EXPERIENCE LIKE?

“The BYOP project is the keystone in this course for me, the deciding factor. Everyone teaches concepts & asks graded questions. BYOP sets this course apart from the crowd.”

Malvika Sahu, Senior Lead for Analytics and Research at Fidelity Investments

My experience so far has been good. Of course, not every topic is entirely relevant for me, and then there are some topics that I am already familiar with in practice and not just in theory. Having said that, the way this course is structured is set to ingrain in us all key concepts.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE ONLINE LIVE CLASSES BY IIM-I FACULTY AND INDUSTRY EXPERTS?

In all honesty, it has been a good learning experience. Classes that encourage participation by design are generally more engaging, and classes with a tonne of theory do tend to get a bit mundane. The fact that we have folks with industry experience teaching us concepts goes a long way in developing faith in the concepts.

“To all those who are serious about building a new product, be it as a part of their current work role, or something of their own. Applying concepts to your own idea will be an excellent learning experience.”

There is no denying the fact that this is a chance for professionals to revamp their corporate journey. Product Management is seen as a strong suit for individuals to soar to greater heights.

With experience emanating similar joy, another learner who opted for Jigsaw Academy’s Postgraduate Program in Product Management is Mohammed Mazharullah, Trade Marketing Manager at Vaya Life Pvt. Limited

WHY DID YOU OPT FOR THE PRODUCT MANAGEMENT DOMAIN FOR UPSKILLING?

Being in the Consumer Durable industry (Sales & Marketing) for 19 years made me take up this course to understand more about the Product and its journey from the manufacturing point to when it reaches the Consumers Hands.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE COURSE LED BY IIM-I FACULTY AND INDUSTRY EXPERTS?
