Developing a product mindset for L&D: A conversation

The event

On Wednesday 26th May we’ll be hosting an open conversation about developing a product mindset in learning. In the digital world, the Product Management discipline has become a cohesive force for change. In learning and development, the value and opportunity of product management behaviours is beginning to be better understood. Whilst the idea that ‘digital has changed everything’ has become something of a cliché, the people and roles behind those changes offer valuable insights for our work.

We were thinking about billing this as a webinar. In our view, there are as many applications of product management techniques as there are people and products, so we feel a conversation about the principles and culture of product management and how these can add value to L&D teams and leaders is more useful. We’ll share ideas and approaches which we’ve seen work well – as well as some missteps. We’d love to hear your experiences, challenges and how these themes might apply in your context, hence the conversation.

What we will cover

  • The need for change – learning organisations under pressure
  • Changing our mindset and values – new ways of thinking and organising
  • The product management opportunity
  • The essential characteristics of a product manager
  • The characteristics of a product centred learning organisation
The three insights of a product manager
Three types of insight create product value


  • Wednesday the 26th of May at 11.00 am (UK time) to 11.45 am
