    TEI 012: Applying Lean Product Development for a 50% Time Reduction

    in Business

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you episode 012 of...


    The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD.


    The podcast is all about helping people involved in developing and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.


    Our Guest:  David Paulson has over 20 years of product development experience and still remembers his first day at work. That’s when he found out how inefficient the product development process was. He’s been working to fix that ever since.


    Highlights from the discussion include:



    Apply Lean product development to cut time to market in half and create successful products – something all innovators want to know how to accomplish!
    Lean has many different definitions, but in the product development context, it has three specific characteristics: (1) focus on value to the customer, (2) rapidly learn, and (3) maximize desired results while minimizing effort.
    In addition to the benefits of creating more profitable products, applying Lean product development also impacts the organizational culture, resulting in happier and more effective employees.
    First time David applied Lean product development to a project, the time-to-market decreased from the expected 30 months to 12 months, finished 20% under budget, and generated an additional $3 million profit by being early to market.
    Good books on the topic of Lean product development are from Don Reinersten, including “Managing the Design Factory” and “The Principles of Product Development Flow.” Read “Managing the Design Factory” first.

    TEI 053: The 26 Most Important Concepts for Product Managers and Innovators

    in Business

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you episode 053 of...


    The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD.


    The podcast is all about helping people involved in innovation and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.


    About the Episode: Welcome to the one year anniversary of this podcast. I’m excited to review the key concepts I found most useful for product managers and innovators from the last 52 episodes. I heard Tim Ferriss do something similar on his podcast and thought it was really helpful and I think you will find it valuable for this podcast. Also, I want to share a product mastery roadmap I have been working on – a roadmap that tells you how to go from a product manager to a product master.


    Before jumping in, I have some exciting news to share – thanks largely to this podcast, I was named a “Product Management Top 40 Influencer for 2015” on the Product Management Year in Review site. I’m honored and humbled to be on the list. I have had the pleasure of interviewing some of my fellow influencers. Others I have not yet interviewed but do follow, including Eric Ries, Steve Blank, and Guy Kawasaki.

    "Avoid head trash. Do not be a garbage can for anything that does not feed your intellect, stimulate your imagination, or make you a more compassionate peaceful person. Refuse to open your mind to other people's trash. Tune out anything that promotes conflict. This can infect you with a mind virus of cynicism or defeat and you will not even know it!  Be deliberate about setting up your day to win. Whatever you feed your mind in the first 30 minutes of the day, will impact the spirit of your day. Saturate yourself with positive words that fuel your energy and ignite your spirit. Your thoughts create your reality. Create an extraordinary life! You have GREATNESS within you!"  ~ Les Brown

    Lions do not have to roar. There is power in silence, confidence, and persistence. Those who work don't talk, and those who talk do not work. Handle your business. Measure your efforts by results. Focus your time, energy, and activity on mastering and executing a plan.  Avoid the energy draining practice of telling people what you're going to do. Instead, spend your time and effort in doing the things that are necessary to accomplish your goals. Keep your focus. and stay determined in order to pursue your dream. Let your work, not your words, speak for itself. You have GREATNESS within you! ~ Les Brown

    Stop trying to change the people you love and change yourself! Stop trying to change people who take your money but will not take your advice. You will only drain your own mental, spiritual, emotional and financial reserves. The truth is...people change when they are sick and tired of being sick and tired or hit rock bottom.  If you are dealing with addiction or irresponsible behavior from grown adults ~ protect your wallet and your mind. It does not mean you do not love them. Your attempts to help may only delay what is inevitable. Allow them to take the journey they have chosen for themselves. Choose to let go of the guilt and be at peace. You may require counseling or emotional support to stop being an enabler. If necessary, give yourself some distance so that you can stop being used or manipulated because they know that you care and you love them. You have the right to enjoy a guilt-free, happy and productive life. Commit yourself to changing the only person you really can - YOU!! You have GREATNESS within you!! ~ Les Brown

    in Business

    The podcast is all about helping people involved in developing and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.


    Our Guest: Professional associations provide value to career development. The first professional association I was involved in was the Project Management Institute, and I eventually became certified as a Project Manager Professional (PMP) because I recognized its value in helping me improve my project management capabilities while also helping me to stand out with future employers. Another association I have valued, as well as contributed to, is specific to product managers, marketing managers, and innovators. It is AIPMM, The Association of International Product Marketing and Management. I interviewed the president, Therese Padilla, to learn more about this important organization.

Today, choose to believe in and explore the power of your own engagement. This means to fully connect to your calling and passion in life. Lean into it. Pursue it every day ~ despite the distractions in your life, or in spite of any perceived limitations. Decide to live far beyond any past regrets or future excuses.

    Decide today to make your future brighter than your past.  Become still and think about what you want more of in your life, or what you value the most in your life right now. Commit yourself to making this a huge priority. Where your attention goes, your energy flows.  Create positive stories in your life every single day. For the next 7 days, do not listen to or talk about anything negative that happened to you, or someone else in the past. Allow yourself to bring light where there is darkness; speak peace where there is anger and infuse love where there is indifference. Create something today that you will be proud of in the future. You have GREATNESS within you!! ~ Les Brown

    Laugh out loud at life. It is good medicine for your heart and spirit. It is a way for you to say "Life, I am still standing with my head up high." Laughter strengthens the immune system and increases your capacity to cope. It has the power to heal you at the cellular level. Sometimes all you can do is laugh, even through your tears and pain. When you are overwhelmed, laugh at your bills, your body, your kids, or at any unexpected challenge of life. This is not denying what is in your life. It is defying it! One minute of anger weakens the immune system for 4-5 hours, while one minute of laughter boosts it for over 24 hours. So try this...make silly faces in the mirror, laugh from down deep and bring out the child in you! Find some popcorn, get a few family, friends together and allow yourself to really laugh. Interrupt your worries and choose to make yourself feel good in spite of it all. You Deserve It.  You Have GREATNESS In You!!!  ~ Les Brown


    Know who YOU are, always follow your spirit, and live a beautiful life.
