I wish there was a Codecademy-like online learning platform for product management.
I'm doing the front-end development career path on Codecademy and it is utterly beautiful. Their product managers are so on-top of it that my very post on their forum triggered a new feature update on their site within a month.The only alternatives I see out there are either certificates with hefty financial commitments and definitely not "learn at your own pace" modules. All I found out there thus far are great books (not being sarcastic.) that get boring really fast, greatly marketed certificate programs (which I can't say much about because I never took one), and really exciting Master's programs that would require me to put the job that pays for my rent and food on hold.
So I took some of the suggestions below along with my own research and I came up with four buckets of PM skill honing programs. I am literally starting with a course from bucket 2 and won't look back until I'm at the finish line.
Bucket 1: intro courses for beginners, mostly for those who don't know what a PM is
Bucket 2: continued learning, a bit immersive, and very affordable
Bucket 3: very promising, highly-immersive (or at least they try hard to sell you that impression), but heavy on the wallet
Bucket 4: top-notch, Master's degree, or Micro-masters. alas, very expensive and most of them are full-time
My Bucket 2:
If anyone has done any of those three I listed above or has first-hand experience with them please don't hesitate to share it. I am looking for intermediate to advanced reviews of PM frameworks, I am way past a beginner's design philosophy.
