Accept to Present Best Practices to Maximize Returns on Product Investments

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 27, 2011) - Accept Software (, a leader in Enterprise Product Strategy and Planning, announced its gold sponsorship of the Product Development & Management Association's (PDMA) Annual Global Conference on Product Innovation Management to be held in Phoenix, Arizona from October 29 through November 2, 2011.

John Hamm, President & CEO of Accept Software, will present a session on Maximizing Return on Your Product Investments, which will take place Tuesday, November 1 at 12:35 p.m. Mr. Hamm will discuss how billions in product investments are wasted due to lack of upfront planning and strategy-execution disconnect. In the session, he will share best practices companies can adopt to make the right product strategy and planning decisions and execute with speed and confidence.

"There is enormous organizational dissonance in product planning today," said Mr. Hamm. "Product strategy, portfolio and execution decisions are made in silos today resulting in slow, haphazard decision making with almost zero visibility and teams operating with minimal agility." Mr. Hamm added, "Companies need an integrated platform that enables executives, product and development teams to dynamically collaborate throughout the product development process ensuring alignment at every step."

Mr. Hamm is also the author of "Unusually Excellent - The Necessary Nine Skills for the Practice of Great Leadership." He is an advisor to leaders of all types of organizations worldwide -- and has a diverse background as an operating executive, a start-up CEO, a venture capital investor, a leadership coach and an advisor/board member to dozens of technology companies.
