  • I have designed this course based on research with busy professionals. Because you already have a lot on your plate, this course can be navigated at your own pace. Total time commitment is 3-5 hours, though of course you can choose to spend more time on the bonus materials and with your peers in the community.

  • Yes and No. While it is true that all of us can improve our odds of interview success, interviews are often not the main limiting factor for senior folks. So while we will spend a lot of time on advanced tactics to elevate your craft and get promoted (it is the biggest module!) please note that this is not a dedicated interviewing skills course. You can check out the Cracking the TPM Interview course if you are actively job searching.

  • No course in the world can give you step by step instructions. In this course, you will learn about what skills are required at higher levels of Technical Program Management, what can hold a TPMs’ career back, and tactics to make time for learning & growth. While we will have some exercises and hands-on practice time, this is not a pure skills building course. You must do that work yourself. No shortcuts.

  • The content for this course is catered especially to senior TPMs, Program Managers and People Managers. I do not recommend that aspiring TPMs & early career TPMs (say those who do not have a Sr. TPM, Sr. Program Manager or higher title or have less than 2-3 yrs program management experience) sign up for this course. You can check out the Cracking the TPM Interview course if you are actively job searching.

  • Finding a great next job is extremely important for our careers, in good times and in bad. We will cover this topic briefly during the course in line with how to carve a path to the next level. You can check out the Cracking the TPM Interview course if you are actively job searching which goes into specific tactics to ace your interview, job search strategies and building powerful storytelling for success.

  • No, this course is for senior TPMs and Program Managers who already have a strong technical foundation and adept program management and execution skills.

  • My own experience is largely in the United States, so the content will lean towards US-based folks. But the content is also appropriate for countries where there are many fast-growing technology product companies and equity is a significant portion of compensation.

  • While a lot of the language here & in the course itself is specific to TPM, non-TPMs will still find it extremely valuable and find most of what's covered in the course applies to their function & role. So if you are in a program-focused role without a TPM title, you could still consider enrolling.

  • I, Priyanka am an experienced FAANG TPM Leader with over 20 years of expertise in engineering, product, and program management leadership roles across multiple complex cutting-edge domains. I have led highly technical program teams at Cruise Automation and Meta (Facebook) to deliver business objectives and know what it takes to achieve success and get promoted.

    I have built multiple TPM organizations from the ground up and created performance frameworks and leveling guidelines. I have been in multiple calibration and promotion decision meetings and understand what goes on behind closed doors.

    I have coached and mentored hundreds of TPMs and program managers and seen them level up and achieve success by following my guidance.

    I can say with confidence that you will not find any other course like this one that’s targeted for experienced professionals in Program Management in Tech.

    You will also have the opportunity to join an exclusive community of like minded peers.

  • I have designed this course specifically for folks wanting to get to the next level. The material for this course has been created from the ground up based on my years of experience. Plus, it will take a ton of effort and context setting for most people to find, consume, and benefit from that public content like you would in the course.

  • No. Priyanka offers 1:1 executive leadership coaching for ambitious leaders and startup founders. Priyanka will however host regular office hours and the entire course is like getting career coaching from Priyanka.

  • People who join this course have the opportunity to join the UNLEASH Program. The UNLEASH community is a private community where I regularly answer questions and share exclusive content. Plus, there will be live events, AMAs, spotlight coaching and more on regular cadence.

  • I am creating the UNLEASH Community with the explicit intent of building long term relationship between myself and other members of the community. Once the course is complete, you will be able to apply to join the community.

  • Yes, you will receive a completion certificate from me, typically within 24 hours of the end of the last session of the course.

  • There are no refunds once the course has been purchased. You can choose to cancel your plan subscription at any time from your My Account page.

  • You will become a site member when you enroll in the course. You will have your own Account management area where you can access the course schedules and cohort community.
