An important part of being a product manager is overseeing the progress of the team and making decisions to ensure maximum value. It's essential to understand the basics of project management whether you are in a large company working with project managers or in a smaller startup where both the product management and project management fall on your shoulders.
One of the major challenges is making sure you do not start a project unless all of its parameters have been validated with the different stakeholders. We will, therefore, examine how to create a business case, conduct a feasibility study, and write a project charter.
We will explore the five phases of the project management lifecycle, which will show you how to create a project plan, execute against that plan, and monitor progress before closing the project.
We will look at task breakdown, how to estimate the costs of a project, and how to create a visual representation of a project's main delivery dates and milestones via Gantt.
