Learn In, the world's first upskilling-as-a-service platform that empowers companies to keep employee skills current among rapid technological change, is partnering with 280 Group, the world’s leading product management training firm, to offer businesses online product management training and certification.
"Product delivery skills are becoming more and more critical as digital transformation accelerates and new products are being developed at a breakneck pace," said Taylor Blake of Learn In. "280 Group’s Optimal Product Process™ is the gold standard for product management training." The implementation of a formal product process contributes to the success of product managers and product management teams, improving skill sets by up to 31 percent.
280 Group’s courses offer practical knowledge and skills delivered by expert, veteran product leaders--self-guided or live online. Its independent certification exam from the Association of International Product Marketing and Management (AIPMM) is a proven skills builder and career accelerator for new product managers.
Demand for product managers was growing by more than 30 percent per year before 2020, and the pandemic-driven race to digitize has made demand even higher. Yet just 20 percent of businesses have effective recruiting and retention programs, and hiring can take up to 45 days.
"Upskilling existing employees can be one of the fastest and most effective ways of ‘hiring’ product managers,” said Rina Vernovskaya of 280 Group. “280 Group’s programs give employers a fast path to the skill needed to craft better products that delight customers. Our newest course on Digital Product Management is a great way to upskill product teams on new and innovative digital practices."
Learn In works with enterprise businesses to build high-skill, on-the-job training programs into their benefits packages, integrating top online courses, coaching, and tuition assistance. Learn In coaches will connect learners of all abilities and available time with relevant courses. The Learn In platform also measures outcomes and tracks the cost advantages of upskilling internally instead of hiring or training externally.
