Get your Black Belt in Product Management

by Arjun Saksena — Product Mentor

This is an intensive 6-week Product Management Program designed to refine, consolidate and make robust your existing product management or related experiences.

We work with real challenges at a leading startup or company and interact with a Product Leader at the company to solve a problem.

Participants will utilize their existing knowledge, familiarity, and experience and apply them directly to real-world product situations. Discussions, frameworks, and feedback will be an integral part of each session and provide a robust learning experience.

We invite companies to nominate a real-world challenge that they would want to resolve and work with us to define the challenge. Each company will also need to allocate time from one of their senior Product Leaders to work with the cohort. Companies can also have high performers with their organization to attend the certification program. Each cohort is limited to 12 people.


For companies, we create a hiring pipeline of well-qualified candidates who are well acquainted with the challenges and culture of the company. Problem statements range from Product/Market Fit, feature validation, Data Strategy, pricing and growth planning. Custom modules are available.

  • Mentoring sessions: 06 Hours (1 per week per participant)
  • Independent and Buddy study: 12 Hours (2 per week for each pair)

Participant Feedback: 

“Very informative and interactive session. Arjun is very detailed and explains concepts very well so that beginners can understand it from scratch. Thanks.” Deepali

"The user research, framework, product discussion, tools, metrics analysis, design challenges are very relevant to what a real PM will do in a real PM org nowadays. What impressed me the most are 1. the problems are from real startups 2. the users are real so you got to identify meaning insights from interviewing real users (I was inspired to go out and do more user interviews because of the Productify experience). Besides, Arjun is a very patient, knowledgable and resourceful mentor. I wish I could spend more time in the program. I would mainly recommend to people who are unsure of PM path or want to transition to PM and don't have any PM projects on resume yet." Angela

"Arjun was very helpful in driving the PM process. This was a great way to get hands-on and solve problems outside my experience space. I learned a lot on the topic of the marketplace, which is the industry I'm in today. Highly recommend." Julien

"A good program for engineers looking to become PMs. Arjun brings a ton of PM experience and I encourage students to ask lots of questions to get the most out of the program. You get to work on challenging business scenarios that early-stage startups typically encounter and if you work hard, you will have some good PM stories to share with peers and employers." Shiv
