    • Translating your Mission into Desired Outcomes
    • Gotta love Peter Drucker  “There will always be, one can assume, a need for selling. But the aim of marketing is to make selling superfluous. The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well that the product or service sells itself” Peter Drucker
    • It starts and ends with the customer  Value of customer loyalty  Coffee machine is the wrong question – it's not about features it's about benefits, what is the customer looking for  3 things to know your customer:  Know who your customers are (be able to paint a picture like your best friend)  Understand what they need (not what you think, what they actually need)  Deliver better value than competitors (understand who your competition is and why)
    • Tools you can use  Use cases  Agile development  Free resources – Sun SSE program – SIFE, other groups – DemoCamps – The Web – Your “enemies” – User forums – Investors willing to make small investments (think big, go slow) and not willing to make any at all
    • Launch checklist  What am I launching? Alpha, beta, full product  Why am I launching now? What are my business objectives  When will I launch? Are there outside contextual influencers that should be considered  How will I launch? Do I have a marketing plan, do I have a customer support plan
    • Resources  Sketching User Experiences – Bill Buxton  The Four Steps to the Epiphany – Steven Blank  http://www.slideshare.net/embarkonit/product- management-1390507
