Description

Life’s too short to build something nobody wants…

These days, everyone seems to have an idea, that may be “the competition killer” or “the next big thing” but very few people actually have the knowledge or skill to bring a product to life.

Hence, RiiDL and Pragmatic Product Leader brings this master class in Product Management.
