Looking for some advice on analytics skills for a Product Manager.

I’m actively looking for a job, and lots of companies are looking for a data-driven PM. While I did not have the opportunity to work with analytics or quantitative data in my 2-year PM career.

What would you recommend in this case?
I have found Pendo Analytics Certification course, which is about 3 hours. I am also considering Google Data Analytics specialisation (I’d have to pay for few months of Coursera though).

How do you implement any new “enabler” or feature without having data to justify it? I’m sure you’ve done some business casing or data digging to understand why X or Y should be built. Otherwise you would be shipping feature/product with no backing other than hunch?

Unless specifically mentioned that they want you to both gather and analyse, they probably just want you to be able to take decisions based on data (that others get) and help define what kind of data you need i.e. help define Key Results or Metrics.
Have they defined what they mean by data driven?

The single best course I took AFTER graduating college was called "Managing Big Data with MySQL." It is available on Coursera which is where I go a lot for courses.

The course was not very difficult and provided not only a core foundation knowledge of how data is stored in relational databases but gives you the skills to be able to self-serve queries. Learning SQL gave me the power to find answers myself and made me 100 more confident talking with engineers, and analytics teams and removing dependencies from others.

My experience is as noted above. Looking for someone who can review data and make sound business decisions based off of it. Read data towards metrics, KPIs, OKRs, team performance, epic maturation, forecasting, spend, requirements writing, etc. I work on a data team and have no experience in it, other than I can decipher data points, client needs and write them in a coherent way for DE to build..
