Mike Jones


As a recent MBA graduate and long time product developer, I wanted to focus my new knowledge and make a statement to peers that my career would focus on leadership aspects of product management. The RPM Experience allowed me to focus attention on best practices. As a general manager the knowledge will help me guide my business process and maintain alignment with overall strategy.

Mike McKevitt


NPDP certification was important for me to earn as a validation of the knowledge I have gained and the work I have completed over the course of my career. The course provided a great structure for learning the necessary material and getting questions answered. Nothing was missed. I highly recommend others seeking certification to participate in the course.

Organizations have also applied the RPM Experience to help their product managers and teams move towards product mastery...

I had to get my team performing well for a high-stakes, tight-deadlines product project. I wanted a full perspective and not narrow focuses that others provide. The RPM Experience delivered and now we have expanded it to all our product managers. I recommend it to anyone.

JOHN TOUVANNAS

Director of Product Management

Every year we provide a formal training program for our new product managers as part of their onboarding. The RPM Experience is the foundation of this training. Product managers gain the big picture and see how all the pieces fit together to make the organization more successful.

JOHN SPERO

Lean Specialist, Scrum Master

The RPM Experience is aligned with PDMA's body of knowledge. I needed to bring that BoK to my team, get them on the same page, learning the concepts that make us successful. Comparing the concepts to our practices and discussing how to better apply them improved the team's performance.
