Introduction to Software Product Management

Written 2 years ago
This was a very easy introductory course. I'd say it took me less than 3 hours to complete the entire course. It glances over what product management is, agile techniques, and benefits.

I see this as a the basics if you haven't yet read about or practiced any product management before.

Entrepreneurship 1: Developing the Opportunity

Written a year ago
Background: I have worked at a startup for the past 3 years, so I was already familiar with some concepts.

Content: the content is not difficult. In general, they are teaching you things that you must do to be successful at a startup, but nothing they teach will guarantee success. That's the difficulty of entrepreneurship. The key value of this and many other courses is to give you a framework of reference to use to brainstorm and evaluate new venture opportunities. It is very valuable to be able to draw from the professors' experiences when doing this.

Difficulty: easy.
