Joining Georgia today is Ally Akbarzadeh. Ally has spent over two decades bringing great digital products to life, and has been fortunate enough to develop industry-leading B2C and B2B products. He has extensive experience in marketing products and is going to share his thoughts, opinions, and ideas on the importance of having a strong go-to-market strategy and how that ties into product strategies.

Ally talks about how building and launching brilliant products requires understanding and harmonizing an internal focus (the build) with an external focus (the launch). The go-to-market strategy captures how you will bring a specific new experience or series of new experiences to market.

In this episode we discuss: 

✓    Aligning the product strategy with the marketing strategy

✓    Financial literacy

✓    If Product Managers need to be across P/L statements

✓    Who is responsible for paying for the problems that arise

✓    Advice for Product Managers entering a new market
