Why should I learn design as a PM?

Design is a specialized skill, and as a PM, it can be intimidating — especially if it’s not your natural inclination. (Plus, there’s usually a design team to deal with that stuff, right?) But that mentality is a missed opportunity; it’s equally important for PMs to keep design top-of-mind when making decisions.

The design CBC was a game changer for my UX thinking before the cohort I wasn't able to empathize with or contribute to the designs at ConsCent. Would recommend this course to Aspiring and early PMs if they want to boost their design thinking

Sourav Yadav

As a product leader, I wanted to learn more about designers in order to improve collaboration between product managers and designers. Not only did I gain a better understanding of designers, but I also learned a lot about the design process as a whole.

Ramkumar

'Design for PMs' was the perfect primer for someone like me who had zero prior experience. I found I was very quickly able to translate some basic design thinking into my daily documentation.

Ashiya Ghosh

I highly recommend Design Cohort for Product Managers to anyone looking to enhance their skills and advance in their career. The program's expert instructors have helped me achieve success in my role as a product manager. Don't hesitate to give it a try!
