Jon will share real-life case studies to illustrate the importance of involving Product Marketing before the product is built and creating strategic go-to-market plans from the start. Finally, Jon addresses how the integrated role of Product Marketing requires agility, iteration and collaboration to be successful, especially as the pace of change quickens in the markets we serve.
