Dear Strategy 130: How To Differentiate Between a Product Strategy and a Go-To-Market Plan
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we talk about the difference between a product strategy and a go-to-market plan, and why it’s important to have both of these key planning tools working together in harmony. Key Takeaways: A product strategy and a go-to-market plan are two distinctly different, yet very much coordinated planning tools. A go-to-market plan is a dynamic and continuous plan that exists throughout a product’s entire lifecycle and not just at product launch. Your product strategy should provide direction on your product’s over-arching business goals and initiatives, whereas your go-to-market plan should provide more specific details on your product’s target customers, value proposition, positioning, and marketing mix (product, price, promotion, and placement) roadmaps.

Dear Strategy 129: How To Align Your Product Strategy to Your Corporate Messaging
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we talk about how you can align your product strategy to your corporate strategy, and why it’s so important to alert your company’s leaders when that alignment doesn’t quite exist. Key Takeaways: If you are a corporate leader, make sure that your corporate strategy exists and is clearly communicated. If you are a product manager or business unit leader, make sure that you have a firm understanding of what your corporate strategy really is. Be open to having honest discussions about whether your product-level goals and strategies are truly aligned with the values that your company claims to embrace.
