It's difficult for companies to find the right formula for launching successful product campaigns, especially when this requires strategic marketing experiences and relationships that span beyond their core competencies. How do companies with limited resources retain a competitive edge. How do companies know how to hit the mark when a target has not been properly defined? How do companies create strategies when they are learning as they go?

Despite the unknowns, companies know that there are thousands of great products yet to be discovered; that there are thousands of businesses looking for new ideas. They also know they must expand in order to grow. However, how many companies can cross this chasm?
