Train Your Product Teams to Ship Value

If your product management team is not able to ship products that customers crave in a predictable and consistent fashion, you are not alone. 


I have helped countless teams like yours. You can benefit from my customized, activity-driven training sessions.

My Training Philosophy

Learning can be broken down into various stages:

  • First Stage – Understand the concept

  • Final stage – Apply the concept, at will, in relevant situation


While some learners can go from understanding the concept to application, there could be intermediate stages to help the progression:

  • Seeing the concept at work through industry examples.

  • Applying the concept in a case study.

  • Applying the concept retrospectively to a past situation the learner faced


I focus on sharing stories and experiences in my training sessions, and encourage retrospection through discussion

The Art & Science of Prioritisation

Slide from RahulMd prioritisation training presentation

Product managers get plenty of feature requests from customers, partners and internal stakeholders.

While some can shape your roadmap, others are detrimental to your company’s strategic interests. Product managers struggle to prioritize these. 

This popular hour-long training which I delivered at Institute of Product Leadership, Bangalore and at multiple other venues is an experiential learning session complete with a B2B case study and provides a framework for prioritization. 

This training really resonated with the audience which consisted of product leaders, engineering managers, architects, and UX designers from companies like IBM, GE, TCS, and Sabre.

Data-Driven Product Strategy - An Exercise

Product managers know data is the holy grail. But they often drown in the data overload, struggle with what data to look for, and how to use it.


In this training I organized along with Mind the Product’s Bangalore chapter Product Tank, the 60-odd attendees were split into groups and asked to come up with a business plan for a startup that was on the verge of running out of cash.

With a timer ticking away on a screen, each group was excited and immersed in the activity. They had to analyze a large dataset and come up with a business plan to present to the board. The participants walked away with confidence in their ability to use data effectively in strategic thinking.

User Personas that Drive Product Strategy

Outcome of Persona training by RahulMd

Often user personas are so abstract that no one from engineering to design cares about it. 

But what if the user persona was dissected using a framework and presented to you as a story. In this training for the leadership team at Bangalore-based farming startup—Agriapp—I did exactly that.

I presented the user persona as an individual who not only uses apps but also thinks and most importantly has feelings and emotions.


This storytelling technique helped the team understand the user’s motivations, goals, frustrations, and fears. Empathizing with the user helped them build a cohesive product strategy that revolved around the user persona.
