Prodlab – The Product Management Club of IIM IndoreGood things happen when unique minds strive to create greatness. Best things happen when those minds conjoin to create solutions that have an impact on many lives.
Prodlab is the Product Management Club of IIM Indore. We are a geeky yet fun bunch of quirky people who obsess over technology. Be it praising a new feature of Instagram, ideating hypothetical solutions for out of the box problem statements, or critiquing an infamous app over chai, we love it all. We not only encourage people to learn about the product community, but also to think beyond boundaries, to channel their inner product genius. While everyone can think of creative solutions, we help students give that creativity a structure with various industry frameworks. The team has tried to build a culture of promoting user centric and equitable solutions to problems. We reckon that everyone has the ability to empathize. Technical dexterity isn’t a hindrance in the field of product management. We are a community of product folks who engage in peer learning. As they say and rightly so, people care about what you build, it is a crowd led democracy on which products succeed.
Objective: We work towards building a collaborative environment for students to learn and explore the field of product management. We want to provide a platform for idea generation, structured critical thinking and gaining hands-on-experience necessary to ace product management roles.
