April 11, 2011 Topic:

"If you were to going to spend close to $250K on a project how much discussion would be involved?  How many meetings and how much buy-in would be necessary? What type of ROI would you need to get it approved?  Now, if you were going to hire a new product manager how much of that occurs?  

It is amazing how companies that put so much emphasis on market data can trust a hiring decision to a gut instinct. This week’s topic will explore the best practices around interviewing and bringing on board a new PM.
