Didactics of our training - Flipped Classroom
„The training has brought me a lot, I am convinced of the method of the Open Product Management Workflow, but I must make in any case more interviews with customers, these and further still more practice.“ This is how the participants expressed themselves again and again at the end of our trainings in the past years.
Since the product managers are drawn back into the normal working day after the training, experience shows that there is little time to practice and deepen. We have therefore considered how we can help the participants to practice even more with them in the common time of our product management courses.
The solution is the didactic method Flipped-Classroom, which makes us the first and currently the only company in the world to train product managers so effectively.
Flipped-Classroom, instead of teacher-centred teaching
Learning the theory in peace and quiet and practicing the practical implementation in the time together, instead of frontal teaching, this is the idea behind the didactics flipped classroom, according to which we teach the subject matter.
At home, they learn the theoretical basics at their own pace. You will then practice the tools of the trade for product managers in class using various methods and tasks. You will be individually supported and moved from a passive to an active role. In this way you will reach the highest level of didactics, as the learning content is optimally consolidated and you will be enabled to implement it immediately on a daily basis.
Advantages for you as a participant through the didactics Flipped-Classroom
For you as a participant a product management training according to the didactics Flipped-Classroom offers the following advantages:
- You as a trainee can learn the theory at your own pace, as you can read our textbooks well in advance because there are freely available copies.

Learning objectives for personal optimisation
For each course and for each topic there are defined learning goals, i.e. it is clearly defined what the participants should master at the end. This is the only way to determine individually for each participant where there is potential for their own optimisation.
The learning goal, which is above all else, is:
Participants will know all the steps and will be able to use the tools necessary to create a marketable product, market it and manage its success.
Peter Lemser Superior Educational Counsellor
"The most important thing for students to learn and understand what they have learned and to be able to apply it independently and permanently is well-considered didactics. From my point of view Flipped-Classroom is a modern, effective and very sustainable didactic which achieves one of the best results for the learners."
