Understanding the AI product management field has become more crucial now than ever, particularly in light of recent advancements in artificial intelligence and Machine Learning technologies including the recent proliferation of generative AI large language models. Considering the speed with which AI is becoming pervasive in our lives, having a strong grasp of AI concepts and frameworks is critical. This becomes more pertinent especially for aspiring AI product managers without significant technical (e.g., coding) background.  

This learning sprint explores opportunities recent advancements in artificial intelligence bring to the field of AI product management, with an emphasis on applying an ethical lens to developing and deploying AI products. By catering to non-technical professionals, this sprint aims to make the AI product management field more accessible, which is a precursor for innovating and building groundbreaking products that address complex, real-world challenges through leveraging cutting-edge technology. This course is ideal for tech-savvy professionals who want to acquire domain knowledge and foundational skills in order to thrive in the exciting field of AI product management.

Learning objectives

Ready to unlock the power of AI in your organization? 

Through a series of hands-on activities and guided discussions, participants will learn how to leverage AI concepts and tools in order to tackle real-world technological problems. At the end of this learning sprint, participants will walk away with:

  1. Foundational knowledge of key concepts in AI product management.
  2. Practical experience for building a simple AI project, and useful skills for integrating AI into existing projects.
  3. A firm understanding of key ethical considerations in the process of developing and deploying AI products.
  4. Lasting connections while learning with and from a network of like-minded individuals passionate about the field of AI product management. 

This course does not require any level of technical (e.g., coding) background. A basic, theoretical understanding of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies is helpful. Alternatively, participants are encouraged to watch this fundamentals of AI product management webinar prior to joining the sprint.


This learning sprint is organized around three main components.

Case study 

This sprint uses a short case study around which live workshops and asynchronous activities are structured. Ahead of a live workshop, the instructor will assign a topic based on the case study and may record a short video discussing pre-workshop tasks. Participants are encouraged to complete assigned tasks prior to convening for a live workshop.  

Live workshop 

These are synchronous, discussion-based sessions in which participants, guided by the instructor, synthesize the content of the topics covered in each module toward building expansive knowledge and practical skills. Live workshops will constitute hands-on and immersive activities conducted in large and small groups. All live workshops are one hour-long and will be delivered on June 5, 12, 18, and 26 between 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM ET. There will be two additional sessions exclusively for Front Row participants on July 2 & 3, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM.

Problem of Practice

As participants go through this learning experience, they are encouraged to identify a problem related to AI product management within their organization and/or their respective roles. Using the knowledge and skills gained from this sprint, participants will have the opportunity to develop a simple strategy aimed at mitigating the problem they have identified over the course of the four live workshops. Front row participants will be able to present their strategies and receive additional feedback from the instructor at two complementary sessions.
