No one human is capable of producing everything it needs to survive and it is for this purpose that businesses exist. Every single day, buyers are confronted with many products and services that seek to meet their specific needs, wants, or desires. Ultimately, a purchase decision hinges on whether the presented value aligns with the cost a customer is willing to pay in order to have their needs met.

Entrepreneurs and businesses are able to capture some of this value for themselves by competing for profits through solid product strategy, winning marketing execution, and smart business operations and cost structures.

Join me in this 3 week masterclass as we dissect the core principles of product development, going to market, and building an operations machine that gives you a competitive edge in your market no matter the structure of your industry.

This course is for aspiring entrepreneurs, product managers, marketing professionals, and business managers.
