Product Management is all about strategy. While the role itself may differ from one organisation to the next, it is a position geared towards the successful development, launch and continuous improvement of a company’s products. Operating in accordance with the wider product strategy, the product manager focuses on the strategic and tactical elements of a product’s journey to the end-user. They do not, however, play a role in the hands-on design and development of the product itself.

Typically, Product Managers focus their efforts on five key areas of responsibility – research and analysis, strategy development, communication planning, development coordination and the collection and evaluation of feedback. Their job is to ensure that everyone involved in the project at any level has the knowledge and resources required to contribute to a collective goal. At its heart therefore, product management is a specialist area of project management – one that drives the entire project lifecycle from start to finish.

This all-new Level 3 Diploma in Product Management has been designed for anyone looking to thrive in a product management capacity. Study a detailed dissection of the product lifecycle, the importance of an effective pricing strategy and how to market products for maximum impact. Get to know the advantages and disadvantages of available distribution channels, the cornerstones of an effective and branding strategy and so much more besides.

Enjoy the freedom to study from any location at a pace that suits you, with no time-restrictions to worry about and no deadlines to meet!

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
