Capstone Project

The capstone project enables you to apply program learnings to real-world business. You will tackle a tedious task in almost all organizations: creating a data automation product requirement specification. The ubiquity of generative AI opens up the possibility of using these process documents to turn any day-to-day task or system process into an automated function by leveraging the documented process and the program journey.

Live Session 

Gain analytical insights from top companies to make the most of generative AI for your enterprise.

After analyzing the case studies, you will leverage learnings in an informative discussion session as well as understand how specific product management and product analytic jobs change with the use of generative AI. You will also channel generative AI experiences for unlocking real enterprise value.

The live session includes:

  • An exclusive discussion on the MSCW method, a new data framework that highlights “must collect,” “should collect,” and “won’t collect” as it relates to your generative AI platform execution
  • A conversation on working with “digital twins” or digital assistants and what the future of your role looks like across the strategy, planning, and analytics functions
  • Strategies to unlock full enterprise and platform analytic value with generative AI
  • Post-case reviews

Case Studies and Industry Examples

Through real-world case studies and examples from multiple industries, you will explore the realities of product analytics and see how theories and frameworks are put into practice.

Featured Activity - Build a Product Requirements Document (PRD)

Throughout the program, you will produce the elements necessary for a product requirements document (PRD). A PRD functions as a high-level, strategic document that:

  • Articulates the purpose of a product
  • Describes the customer and/or user of the product
  • Outlines the intent or problem the product is solving
  • Defines how success is measured

Personalized feedback will be provided on select assignments in the PRD.
