Bit Size Skills for Product People

BottomUp Skills is an online learning platform for entrepreneurs, product creators, and creatives.

Each of our courses gives students a bite-sized, hands-on understanding of significant product frameworks from the world of innovation.

We believe simplifying these new product paradigms are the build blocks for agility in the digital age.

We release a new course every month, so there'll always be something new for you to sink your teeth into.

BottomUp Powered by QUALITANCE

The QUALITANCE team created BottomUp to ensure a common strategy and design language between teams and clients. Until recently, it was exclusively available to our 250+ employees and our biggest clients; like Ford Motors, NewsCorp and Breville.

The impact of the alignment BottomUp gave us was huge. With everyone speaking the same language we could collaborate more closely, drive better outcomes, faster and more efficiently. 

Now, for the first time, we are opening up our BottomUp secrets to everyone for free. We want to see innovators from all over the world leverage our learnings and use them to create new exciting products and processes.
