UX/Product Strategy Online Masterclasses
It works like this. Jaime meets with a cohort at a specific time slot for six weeks via live Zoom sessions. She will give candid feedback and personally coach participants to correctly apply strategic techniques to craft and validate their own innovative product visions. The series of assignments add up to one final portfolio or a product strategy brief. Participants attend approximately 1 to 1.5 hours per week of foundational lectures that explain how to conduct the product strategy techniques in order to successfully complete their project work and understand the theory.
Both public and private (corporate training) class options
Public classes are offered twice yearly. They are announced on this website and also promoted via Jaime’s mailing list, Twitter, and LinkedIn feeds. They always fill up quickly because they are priced affordably and limited to five-people max. They meet weekly for one hour so Jaime can give candid feedback on individual homework assignments. Students are also expected to attend the weekly lectures (or watch them asynchronously) while also reading the course book (UX Strategy, 2nd edition).
Private classes can be customized so that the focus of the sessions are to train your team(s) using live projects that are aligned with your business strategy initiatives. This could be for a batch of new product concepts on you roadmap or revamps of existing products. Class sizes typically range between five to twenty employees broken into smaller groups of either individual or team projects. The program can also be extended for up to 10 weeks to cover additional techniques and subject matter. Participants will attend live lectures and meet with Jaime weekly via video conferencing and other collaboration tools to ensure that everybody understands the work they need to do and get personalized feedback to their project assignments.
Additional critique time can be purchased by the hour so that everyone gets the time/feedback that they need. The client partner is responsible for making sure that the team is taking their training and assignments seriously.
