We have been experimenting with a monthly recorded demo presented as a webinar. Our teams can then share out that latest recording with customers and they're never more than a month out from the latest product greatness.  By nature of being a webinar, it saves us from the curse of perfection—w......Read More

Critically, positioning is about customer value, so resist the trap of feature comparisons, especially in mature markets wh......Read More

This is a big question, but my simple answer is they're part of an ongoing, mutually-informing cycle.
