Kaleva Media boosts its product management competences through training

 Kaleva Media Oy has grown into a multi-media house operating in the whole of Northern Finland. While the traditional media are still trying to reinvent themselves, Kalevala Media has boldly embraced change. Product management training organized by Contribyte Oy has helped them to do this.

Kaleva Media

“Alongside Contribyte, we began considering a joint model which would combine their expertise with our needs. We are grateful to them for the speed with which they met our needs.”

 

As part of its growth strategy, to increase its overall offering Kaleva Media has acquired new companies from various sectors in addition to traditional media companies.  Eino Järvelä, Development Mananger, and  Tommi Silfverhuth, Director, Development & Technologies at Kaleva Media explain that Contribyte’s training has helped them to develop product management.

 – Together with Contribyte, we began considering a joint model combining their expertise with our needs. We are grateful to them for the speed with which they met our needs.

 

“It felt like they researched the issues carefully in advance. Despite the brief preparation time, they clearly took time to plan the training and had done their homework on the media business.”

 

Discussion-based training

– We opted for a two-day training session, which was of great help to us. The participants from our company included product managers and other staff who worked with products, Järvelä comments.

 Part of the training consisted of traditional spreadsheet presentations, but there was also a lot of discussion. Contribyte helped Kaleva Media to form an overall picture. Thanks to the training, Kaleva Media is better able to focus on key issues that enable the achievement of better results.

Everyone was ‘speaking the same language’ after the training

The training taught product managers at Kaleva Media to use the same terms and they are all now ‘singing from the same hymn sheet’. It will be easy to move forward based on the training.

 – I would happily recommend Contribyte. The training provides a strong basis for understanding products and their management, Silfverhuth states.
