The Product Mastery Now Community


For product managers and leaders on the journey to building better products customers love!

Now is the time to accelerate your career and move towards product mastery.


what the COMMUNITY offers

It leverages the three elements common to product mastery journeys that result in developing better products customers love.

Frameworks and tools
Structured learning
Peer learning


The Journey Is Challenging. Don't Do It Alone.


Where to focus now. Doubts. Knowledge gaps. Little interaction with other product managers. No peer group for support. No direct access to experts. Relentless distractions and fires to put out. Confusion about priorities. Lack of influence.

Product managers battle these struggles every day. These struggles can lead to unfocused action, wasted resources, poor decision-making, and feelings of frustration and overwhelm. If you're reading this, you're in the role and you know what it is like. Sure, you are making important differences for customers and your organization, but what is missing? Are you having the impact you want?

This difficult terrain is part of the journey. It's challenging, but better with the right tools, friends, and guides. Creating products customers love is what we want and strive for. Don't do it alone and without the right resources. This is the wisdom of this well-known proverb...

If you want to go far, go together.

Introducing the Product Mastery Now Community

A private community for growth-minded product managers and leaders motivated by a desire to create better products customers love. In the process, they create value for customers, their organization, and their own career growth.

While all product management journeys are unique, three factors are commonly found that all product managers and leaders benefit from:

  • Frameworks and tools help you make sense of things so you understand what is important for a situation and what you need to do.
  • Structured learning cuts through the noise, focusing on what is important to quickly connect the many elements of product work.
  • Peer learning to find nuanced answers to immediate challenges and issues you encounter that other product professionals have already faced.

Inside the Product Mastery Now Community

The community incorporates all three of the factors, providing...

  • Training in a structured framework called the IDEA Framework -- Ideate, Develop, Evolve, and Accelerate. It is a synthesis of other frameworks, tools, and concepts that I have found most useful and that I have taught to thousands of product managers and innovators.
  • Access to live weekly podcast episodes. Not only will you get to see and hear the live interaction with the guest, you'll also be able to ask questions after the interview and interact with the guest. 
  • Peer learning online discussion forums. Asynchronously interact with others to share your experience and get help with product issues you are facing. It will also help you expand your professional network.
  • Monthly live session for interacting with others in the community and special guests. Together, we'll address challenges and issues you are encountering and want help with.
  • The community is designed to be a helpful resource and fun place to interact with other product managers and leaders, not an overwhelming experience that floods you with information. The objective of the community is to focus on what matters and eliminate distracting and time-consuming noise you don't need.

Want More or Less? The Community has Options.

Maybe you're not looking for everything listed above. Instead, you might want some simple nudging to help with accountability to learn from the best product management minds, in less than an hour a week for your professional development. Or, because you are becoming a stratgic leader and moving to more responsible roles, you need a larger and deeper understanding of product management to help accelerate your growth and your organization's growth. To better fit your needs, the Community offers three levels...

Community Features

  • Weekly Live Interviews: View the live video interview as it is being recorded for the Product Mastery Now podcast. Only community members can join the interviews live and see the guest.
  • Weekly Q&A with Guests: After the live interview is recorded, talk to the expert guest and ask questions. You can interact with the guest on video or via text chat.
  • Recordings Weeks Sooner: The videos of interviews with experts are published in the community a few days after recording, while the public has access to the audio (not the full video) several weeks later.
  • Recording Archives: View all past video interviews on a wide range of relevant topics, helping product managers move towards product mastery. Also, the recordings include the community-only Q&A interaction with guest experts.
  • Discussion Forum: Interact with other community members, ask questions, and get help when you need it.
  • Monthly Masterclass: A community-only masterclass is provided each month via a live Zoom meeting with experts to help you accelerate your journey to product mastery. This is available in Pro and Elite community levels.
  • Monthly Mastermind: Each month we meet via a live Zoom meeting for peer-learning, hearing how others are facing and solving challenges, asking questions, and providing guidance. This is available in Pro and Elite community levels.
  • Summit Archives: In 2020, at the height of COVID lockdowns that prevented in-person conferences, we provided the product management community a virtual summit. 25 top-of-their-field experts, including Alex Osterwalder, Tony Ulwick, Rich Mironov, Nancy Duarte, Ash Maurya, Dan Olsen, and more, participated. You get the recordings of their presentations and Q&A. This is available in Pro and Elite community levels.
  • IDEA Framework Training: The IDEA Framework is the roadmap to product mastery. It is designed as a holistic system to help product managers double their success and put an end to being overwhelmed in their job. The framework consists of tools, practices, and processes organized into 4 categories that mirror how products progress using IDEA as an acronym: Ideate, Develop, Evolve, and Accelerate. Purchased separately, the IDEA Framework course costs $897. View details of the course here. This is available in Pro and Elite community levels.
  • RPM Experience: The RPM Experience dramatically moves product managers and leaders forward. It is designed for product managers with at least 5 years of product experience who are becoming strategic leaders. These are product managers that need an integrated framework for both tactical and strategic product work. It is for you if you are already leading product projects and product managers or will be in the future. It is based on the comprehensive body of knowledge curated by PDMA. The RPM Experience is conducted as a cohort of 7-14 product professionals. You'll learn tools, practices, and processes individually via video training. Then, we meet regularly to apply what you have learned to the work you are doing. Past participants in the RPM Experience have shared that the cohort experience was very valuable as they heard how other product professionals were applying the concepts. The cohort experience builds upon RPM Experience described here. This is available only in the Elite community level.

Motivated Members Wanted

Customer-focused. Innovator. Creator. Influencer. Changemaker. Committed to personal growth. And, most of all... Driven to create products customers love.

If that sounds like you, and if you’d enjoy a private community of like-minded product professionals to grow with, then I’d love to welcome you into the Product Mastery Now Community.

But first, let's see if PMN Community is a good match for you. It is designed to be a special place.

It’s for you if you…

  • want a professional community that isn't only for software product managers
  • believe in the virtues of humility, empathy, optimism, and tenacity
  • are inclined to encourage others instead of criticizing
  • have more you want to learn and you're curious about what others have learned
  • are willing to share insights from your product experiences
  • are intrigued how product and innovation management work in various industries
  • motivated to further develop your professional network

It's not a match if you…

  • don’t see value in interacting with product professionals in other industries
  • are motivated by power, fame, status, opulence, or other manifestations of egocentrism
  • are not yet ready to share your ideas, questions, challenges, and needs with others for their constructive feedback


Important FAQs
That's a lot of information in the above sections. Thanks for hanging in there with me! Still, you may have questions. Here are some important ones to know about as you consider joining.

Is there a cost to join the PMN Community?

Yes. The prices are listed here.

What community platform is used for the Community?

I’ve been in many online communities and learned what works and what doesn’t. I also evaluated several platforms. The feel and environment of this community can’t be built on instant messaging interactions. There are pros and cons to each platform choice, and I chose the one with the most advantages… Circle. Think of Circle as a cross between the best parts of Slack, Discord, Facebook Groups, and LinkedIn without the noise and interruptions—which is to say, it's awesome!

How is the PMN Community different from PMN courses such as the Rapid Product Mastery Experience?

The PMN Community is a private community with interactive discussions, exclusive content (including the IDEA Framework), events, and direct access to knowledgeable specialists and experts. In contrast, PMN courses like the RPM Experience for Individuals and Certified Innovation Leader are available for purchase by anyone. The PMN community membership is not required to purchase one of our courses. However, we have added a cohort model of the RPM Experience in the Elite level of the community.

What is the refund policy?

We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are unhappy with your membership for any reason, let us know within the first 30 days of membership, and we will refund your payment.
