During the interview, Jim will answer questions such as:


  • How should companies determine their time objectives for launching new products?
  • How do we measure progress against our launch objectives?
  • How do we ensure the team knows what product enablement tools are available and how to use them?


We use a section of SBI’s Revenue Growth Methodology to guide our conversation. We walk through Phase 12 of the product strategy section, which covers product launch execution. If, at the end of the show you want to get a copy for yourself, we will let you know how to do so.


All the planning and development in the world will not overcome poor execution. Even with great marketing and sales teams, you need a successful launch to meet your business objectives. If you want to find out the best way to set your new product up for success, watch here.
