Our good friend, sponsor and fellow Certified Product Manager, Brian Lawley has launched his new toolkit bundles, The Product Management Office Professional and the Product Management Office Standard. This collection of great tools are available for download.

Brian has gone all out with his launch, too! He has hired Bob Dylan (or Cate Blanchard -- who can tell these days) to pitch his product.

When you go to his site and pick up your new PM Office toolkit, be sure and tell them that you saw his ad on AIPMM.

The total production for this model is 20 and they are all sold out. At a price tag of over $1.4 million, this is a nice, tidy little project car for the Audi subsidiary.
