Throwback Thursday: An Agile Approach to Competitive Intelligence

July 20, 2018

The product team is often responsible for a company’s competitive intelligence efforts. But because it is only one of that team’s roles—and one that isn’t always fully funded—it can feel like a reactive rather than strategic exercise.

This week on Pragmatic Live, we present one of our favorite previous episodes of the show in which Alan Armstrong, founder and CEO of Eigenworks, discusses how he and his team have translated agile techniques for use in the competitive-intelligence area.

NIHITO Principles in Action: Strategies for Conducting Systematic Buyer and User Interviews

July 13, 2018

* This podcast was captured during our recent webinar (NIHITO Principles in Action: Strategies for Conducting Systematic Buyer and User Interviews).

NIHITO (nothing important happens in the office) is the foundation of Pragmatic Marketing’s philosophy, yet it can be challenging for product professionals to establish a regular cadence of productive meetings with buyers and users. Often, the problem isn’t prioritizing time to speak with customers, the problem is implementing a plan to systematically and effectively book these important meetings.

Listen in as Rebecca Kalogeris, our vice president of marketing and Scott Olson, founding partner at Compete2Win, and a product team leader for 25 years, discuss tools and tips that can help you up your interview game.
