Description: 

This course is about building "buyer personas" for business-to-business (B2B) markets.

How good are you are preparing a persona as part of your go-to-market plan?
And, how creative can you be if you don't have a market research budget?

I have 28 years of hi-tech marketing experience, and I usually found myself in the hot seat of needing to create or update my target segmentation model and personas without having access to any market research. Oh, and I needed to draft this by Tuesday!

I discovered that there are tools available to me that I had overlooked -- the persona template being one of them. In this course, I reveal all of my persona secrets and best practices!

Whether you work for an established enterprise company or the newest startup, this persona methodology will work for you!

This course contains:

  • Approximately 2 hours of video lectures.
  • Detailed description of my 10-step persona building process.
  • Download my persona template and learn about the 3 most critical components.
  • Examples of real personas created by real marketers in B2B companies.
  • Quizzes to test your knowledge.
  • Answers to frequently asked questions.
  • And more!

General Assembly’s Product Management course teaches the end-to-end product management (PM) process to a real-world scenario, from evaluating users and managing a roadmap to creating a minimum viable product (MVP) and developing metrics.

 

What you'll accomplish

This is a beginner-friendly program with no prerequisites, although students may have had exposure to product development concepts or be informally taking on PM responsibilities in their current role. Throughout this expert-designed program, you’ll:

  • Determine key risks and assumptions of a product in order to prioritize research and discovery work.
  • Validate hypotheses by gathering user feedback via MVPs, interviews, experiments, and testing.
  • Execute competitive research to highlight market gaps and trends.
  • Speak fluently with developers, user experience designers, and other business stakeholders about priorities, requirements, and workflow.
  • Apply metrics alongside objectives and key results (OKRs) to measure a product’s success and track its life cycle.
  • Apply what you’ve learned to create a portfolio project: a presentation detailing your product creation strategy.
