Who Is Product Dave?

Hi, I'm Dave Wang. I've taught over 3,000 students globally and have been a Product Leader for 15 Years.

I founded Product Academy to help anyone learn practical, modern product management, build world-class products, and obtain a fulfilling career.

In my career, I've taught over 170+ classes at General Assembly, coached online for Harvard Innovation Labs, I write about it, and I've built Products for startups, scale ups, and corporates.

And I hope to share my experience with you so you can create products that can change the world.

Why did I build Product Academy?


I've seen a lot of students that paid for a $4,000 course still get shut down in interviews.
When they are faced with a question like "How do you improve this product"
They jump straight into ideation. If you start with product ideas, you've been taught the wrong thing.

Our industry is not short of certifications or best practices. And here are two hard truths:
1) Most courses just teach you the discovery aspect of the product lifecycle and
2) Hiring managers don’t care about your certificates (see why)
You get hired based on hands-on experience, there is no short-cut.

I built Product Academy because I want to help people become a great Product Manager.
Providing you a place to learn to think like a Product person and practice with the support you need.

My mission with Product Academy is to: 
1) Help people learn modern product management that's practical in real life
2) Help companies build a team of strong product managers
3) Make this world a better place, one product at a time

Product Academy would not have been possible if not for the following people

Building the school took a lot of effort from everyone in the Product Community. This website was created by the amazingly talented
James Baduor and Endurance Dan-Jumbo from adplist.org,

No to mention everyone that has given feedback and
support for the school - I thank you from the bottom of my heart 🙏
