Salespeople are from Mars, Product Managers are from Venus!

If you work in a B2B product organization, you've probably had problems with the sales team. From last-minute "must have" feature requests to misalignment of product capabilities, this relationship has the potential to explode.


In this course, we will provide practical, actionable advice on how to reboot your relationship with the sales team and ensure that you work together rather than against each other. We'll explore frameworks for ongoing coordination between product and sales throughout the product lifecycle.


After taking this course, you'll be better equipped to work together with the sales team to make sure that you have a product that delights users and buyers.
