Product Management has caught your attention

Imagine a world where your skills, previous experience and passions align, where you can carve a rewarding path in the tech industry, without the need to learn coding or go back to school. That world is Product Management—a realm of growth, and endless possibilities.

Product Management has caught your attention for obvious reasons.

The only question is "Where do you start?" and "How soon can you land a role?"

Don't know where to start?

We've got you! We have 100s of students who've successfully landed Product Management roles, without previous tech experience - and you can too. Once you scale the 3 most common obstacles you'll face when you try to do it all by yourself:

You're not sure how to transfer or package the skills from your previous job

You don’t have access to insider information or “network” to connect you with the jobs

You don't know how to tailor your CV and ace interviews for Product Management roles

Start here!

Land your first Product Management role within 6 months by enrolling in
Pivot to Product Management (PPM).

PM SKILLS

HEAR FROM OUR ALUMNI

"

Before PPM, I knew very little about what it took to be a Product Manager, but I was curious and needed my career to take a different turn. The training helped position me for a PM role and gave me the foundation to get my first PM job at SeamlessHR. I cannot thank ProductDive enough for the value and knowledge.

My experience had been great, my best week was the Scrum ceremony week. I enjoyed working with my group and also putting everything I have learnt into practice.

It gave me the confidence boost to feel like a real Product Manager. Thank you for everything.

We have 1500+ alumni representation in the most successful tech companies across several industries including health tech, fintech, ed-tech, and more.

Hi! I'm Tobi Otokiti

10 years ago, I got tired of my role in a software organisation because I didn’t really enjoy programming. I felt I could do more with my strengths. I wanted a job where I could use my soft skills to get results without programming.

I wanted a job that was exciting and dynamic so I could keep learning new things. I wanted a job that would always be marketable and globally recognised.

I started taking certifications and training programs to help me identify what I would like. I took Oracle certifications, CCNA, Huawei Certified Data Com, Customer Support, Animation, name it!

Until I discovered Product Management.

Product management was the best fit for my personality. It helped me harness my creativity, exhibit my strengths, and work in tech without programming.

Today, I lead a team of product managers in one of the top tech companies in Africa, I’ve spoken at global conferences including the world’s largest Product Management Conference "Mind the Product", Africa Tech Summit, The Women in Tech Conference, etc. I’ve been interviewed by BBC, I'm on Forbes Technology Council, and to be honest, it took me a while to get here. I did not know what I was doing or what was expected when I started a Product management role. I could not find a lot of practical training or a lot of people to ask for help.

That's why I started ProductDive and created this program. PPM will save you time, money and shorten your learning curve. Take the leap and enrol today so you can quickly begin this exciting and rewarding career.

ProductDive Career growth as a Product Manager

The journey is harder alone. Let's surround you with talented Product Managers, job opportunities, and a support network that will accelerate your career.

What Makes PPM Different?

A WORD FROM OUR ALUMNI
My major fear was “Will I understand it?”

It's been amazing! My major fear was “Will I understand it?” Thanks to the course content, excellent instructor, great encouragement, and feedback from the success coordinator, I am confident in my ability to thrive as a PM. From the assignment reviews to the team collaboration, and being listed as one of the potential star students of the cohort, boosted my confidence. It's been an amazing journey. I am glad to be part of this Cohort. 

Oluwayomi Oladeji // product manager, EL-berit Academy

I've been spreading the word.

The last two weeks have pushed me and made me believe in myself. Every assignment stretched me and increased my confidence. I particularly enjoy the Saturday sessions because you can see the student success coordinator genuinely wants us to win. I've already been spreading the word about ProductDive to my close friends.

Monique Takor // product manager, DETAIL AND AVEDIA CONSULTING

Definitely worth it!

My experience during the class was phenomenal. It was simplified in a way that anyone without prior knowledge would be able to understand. I love that the classes were not overwhelming but still packed enough with information. The assignments were easy to understand and very relatable. Our success co-ordinator was patient and brilliant. The entire experience is definitely worth it for anyone who wants to pivot to Product management. I have been recommending to any and everyone.
