Why Technology Project Rollouts Fail

Sunday, March 18th, 2018

Can’t wait for our April 9 meeting when we hear Kelly Stark of Forward Vision Marketing.  She’ll tell us why 70% of technology rollouts fail.  Wow… that’s way too many. You should attend if you think you might be developing a product to sell.  You just might avoid the things that cause a product rollout failure.  Wouldn’t it be great to have a successful technology product launch!!!

See you in April at Imperial Noodle on Coit.
