Monthly Case Study

Conversion Rate

Booking conversion rate is the percentage of bookings that gets driver allocation on a given day. Customer conversion rate is the percentage of customers who tried booking a ride and got a driver allocation on a given day.

Our Extraordinaire Bloggers:
We are happy to share the blogs written and published by some of our recent learners:

Katheeravan R

Cohort 27

Harshit Agrawal

Cohort 25

PL team and mentors have always given tremendous importance to blog/article writing. This will not only enhance your knowledge and thought process but most importantly serve as a sample of work esp. for the people who do not have prior experience in Product Management. Hence, with this newsletter we urge our learners to write blogs/articles on varied concepts of PM and related areas.

We would be happy to publish & share these articles in our newsletter and social media domain.

Placement Team Updates
1. Resume Short-listing is in process in companies like Park+
2. Our learners who got some amazing offers in last one month:
  • Gaurav Srivastav from EL cohort 2 has joined Mudrantar as Senior Product Manager
  • Sidharth Arugula from PGD cohort 22 has joined Tapclicks as Associate Product Manager
  • Bhagath from EL cohort 6 has joined Karbon Card-VP Product (Data Platforms)
  • Shantanu Sharma from PGD cohort 17 has joined Teleperformance as Product Manager

My conversations with Talvinder convinced me to join the Pragmatic Leader’s Executive Leadership Program in Product Management. Talvinder truly understood the junction I was standing at, professionally and in personal life. Now, after getting placed in OYO with 88 percent hike in my salary, I consider my decision to join Pragmatic Leaders’ course as a correct one.

Senior professionals from Cogoport presented the mission statement and the organizational goals. They discussed the job descriptions against the vacancies & highlighted the company expectations from the future employees in Product role. A detailed discussion on the JD along with the company expectations would was shared with learners, interactions on company benefits, compensation etc were also done during the session. We are sharing the recording for your ready reference. In total, fifty (50) learners participated in the session and 24 resumes were shared with the company.

Flipped Classroom


Our learners learn by discussing and debating on real-world problems and are actively involved in the solution design process.

Conventional classroom

Sage on Stage

  • A teacher shares the knowledge via live presentations
  • Teachers are at the center of the learning and considered sage on stage
  • Knowledge transfer is one-way and the focus is on knowledge retention
  • Learners don’t get to discuss their ideas or opinions in the class
  • Hence, most learners are unable to apply these concepts in their everyday work life
  • Great for scenarios, where knowledge acquisition and retention is the only focus

Flipped classroom

Guide on side

  • Learners are the center of the universe
  • Classes are meant for healthy discussions and debates on topics
  • Learners go through the material on their own provided by the mentors
  • Mentors work as guide on the side, with the learners
  • Learners develop skills on problem solving, critical thinking and self-learning – the 21st century skills that employers look for
  • Great for scenarios where application skills matter
  • 21st century skills require guide on the side. Simply acquiring knowledge is worthless now.
