Training in advanced B2B product launch…

Tired of underwhelming product launches? Your teams can learn the most advanced B2B product launch methods anywhere… pioneered by The AIM Institute. It’s easy to preview our training, because our public workshop is identical to our in-house workshop.

You can choose either workshop or online training. An AIM trainer can come to your office for a 1-day workshop. Learners then receive post-workshop help on real launches… during coached web-conferences & self-paced online learning modules. Or use just online training modules and AIM web-conference coaching to train global teams.
