Creating the Right Product Strategy To Grow Your Company's Revenue - ProductCamp DFW - H. Dl CastilloAIPMM

802 views

Published on

Introduction
The creation of successful products is essential for companies that want to grow or maintain a competitive advantage. Many organizations lack a clearly defined and understood product strategy. We will discuss the importance of the AIPMM Product Management Framework (PMF) to define and implement a process to conceive, plan and market your company’s products at each stage of their life cycle. We will identify key activities to align business and product strategy with unmet customer needs to create value for your business. We will describe the typical product life cycle from concept to launch and through product retirement. We will also discuss why growing organizations need to implement a formal product management process to support their product strategy.

Objectives
* Why do you need to define the right product strategy?
* What are the benefits of implementing a product planning process?
* What do you need to constantly create insanely great products?

Contact me at http:/linkd.in/hdelcastillo for more information regarding AIPMM membership or certification courses in your area.

Let me know how I can help you accelerate your career, or create and implement a product strategy and product planning process successfully to grow your business.
