Profitable Software Academy


Accelerate software profitability with instructors who care about your success

Product Management training focused on the process behind profitability

Ask a veteran product manager how they got into the field and how they became an expert and they’ll probably tell you it was luck and a lot of trial and error. We’re aiming to fix that.

Product Management is a profession that deals in innovation and profitability. While innovation sometimes comes in moments of brilliant inspiration, usually it is the result of painstaking work by cross-functional teams — led by professional product managers.

This program is built for product managers at every level looking to master the science of innovation and profitability. Our goal: teach you how to build the right product at the right time at the right price.

Bridge the gap between Agile technical teams and business strategy

This program is designed to bridge that gap, starting from Agile basics like User Stories and progressing all the way to expert-level strategic subject matter such as Product Licensing.

Direct instructor interaction forms the core of our delivery model

Let’s be honest: Far too many online training programs count on you to teach yourself.

While we believe your can learn a lot on your own, the evidence shows that nothing can substitute for real instructor interaction. Whether it’s a live coaching session or detailed feedback on a homework assignment, our experts are there to make sure you are grasping the material and moving toward your goals.

Progressive certification options that grow careers

Our hands-on program combines instructor-led workshops with self-guided lessonsproject-based assignments, and graded assessments to provide a comprehensive, scalable approach to innovation in the global enterprise.

Hands-on lessons, tools, and resources product managers can use right away

We’re committed to helping advance product management skills — and enhance fundamental knowledge surrounding pricing, licensing, and customer ROI.
