In this episode of the How to Succeed in Product Management Podcast, marketing professor Jeff Shulman and The Product Management Center advisory board members Red Russak and Soumeya Benghanem welcome Ted Dworkin (Sonos) to talk about strengthening the relationships between the PM and the sales and marketing team.
