I offer online workshops for 10-30 participants (both half and full-day). Each session alternates between large Zoom rooms and virtual breakout rooms where small teams complete step-by-step exercises.
Product Strategy for Platform Businesses
Platform businesses (or “multi-sided platforms”, or “marketplaces”) are among the most successful companies of the past few years (think Uber, Facebook, Airbnb, or Amazon). However, effective product management for platform businesses has specifics relatively to traditional (linear) businesses.
In this workshop, I use clear language and familiar examples to convey the key concepts of platform businesses (or “multi-sided platforms”, or “marketplaces”). In this fast-paced workshop, you’ll be encouraged to follow the examples by applying these concepts as we go, to either a well-known platform company or your own real/imaginary one.
The target audience for this workshop is a product manager or product leader jumping into a role in a platform product. They might be more or less experienced in product in general, but relatively new to multi-sided platform products. They might be either kickstarting the product, or taking an existing platform product to a new chapter. It is particularly aimed at people in pre-product-market fit products.

[What I liked the best about this workshop was] The topic and the online collaborative platform to have the breakout rooms.Productized workshop attendee
For someone new to platform businesses, I found that the concepts were very well explained and accessible. I also enjoyed the exercises as a way to apply these concepts. Bonus point for the creative use of Miro too!JAM workshop attendee
