product psychology course expense
Hey boss, There’s a product psychology course that looks great. Registrations end on September 29, and I’d like to join. It’s a masterclass that shows how to apply psychology to build better products. It’s 1500 USD, and the reviews are excellent. There are alumni from Apple, Linkedin, Netflix, etc. The course is packed with practical tactics and tools (like product checklists and templates) that I can use for our work. It’ll take me about 5 weeks to complete (1-3 hrs/week). In short, it’ll help us increase our conversions ethically and delight more customers. The instructors are well-known in the industry. Their case studies highlight psychological principles used by popular apps/saas. Here’s the link: https://growth.design/course Is it OK to expense this? P.S. should we offer it to the team?
