About the Webinar:
To communicate with a variety of audiences, PM's need carefully-selected and finely-crafted tools. Information flows into the PM group--but how do you capture it? Release proposals, feature requirements, product information, competitive analyses, and other information flow out of the PM group--but how do you best reach your audiences? To make this challenge even more interesting, every company handles product management differently, so you have to tailor both your medium and message to fit your organization.
Tom Grant, a senior analyst at Forrester Research, will use his recent research and his own long experience in product management to help you craft a PM tools strategy. Which tools--from sophisticated requirements management systems to plain old PowerPoint--are the best for you? And for what tasks? And where should you begin?
