The Product Summit 2014 is right around the corner November 20-23, 2014 at General Assembly in San Francisco. We want to make sure you know about the fantastic opportunity for you to have a presence and reach a community of passionate product professionals representing the best product managers, developers, designers, marketers, holding titles including CEO, Founder, VP, and Director from all product categories, across industry, and size organization.
The Product Summit is a unique event that originated in San Francisco, driven by a community of 10,000 passionate product professionals seeking the best tools, methodologies, solutions, and education. You know how challenging it is to innovate product technology, attract talented product professionals and build high performing product teams to forward and scale the product beyond its current market share. If you are currently seeking individuals who have technical expertise and determination to build great products, and/or care about forwarding product excellence - then this event is not to be missed.
The Study of Product Team Performance identifies the key factors that differentiate high performing product teams from their less successful counterparts. Actuation Consulting conducted the third annual global study of product teams with the goal of continuously improving our understanding of why some product teams excel while others struggle.
“We also sought to expand our knowledge of the factors that drive or influence the best outcomes,” states Greg Geracie, President of Actuation Consulting, that has conducted the study of Product Team Performance for the past 3 years.
Greg will discuss the findings, including the use of industry best practices, return on investment (ROI) and its application, the product team’s relationship with the Sales and Marketing organizations and how well the product team understands and aligns its efforts to the sales cycle.

Applied Improvisation and Product Design
Applying improvisation to communication, teamwork and leadership has received a lot of business press lately. Improvisation principles can also be used in marketing areas including product design and usability. Join me Oct 23rd when we chat to Jessie Shternshus, a fellow Applied Improv Network member, about how improv principles can improve design.
As the founder and owner of The IMPROV EFFECT, Jessie weds her lifelong passion for and expertise in applied improvisation with the fast paced demands of the corporate world. In her classes she helps people become better listeners, team players, leaders, and communicators. Her physically engaging and playful workshops are relevant to all fields of life; participants of her workshops vary from college professors to engineers and from web developers to lawyers. Jessie gained her formal education at USF and NYU. Throughout her career she has worked with Fortune 500 companies and companies such as CBS, Johnson & Johnson, Expedia, Getty Images and Celgene.
This is Beyond the Airwaves: The Infinity Project, where we go beyond the mainstream media and tackle issues that don't seem so important to the major networks.
When products get advertised, people concentrate on their uses for the most part. However, when the product is called Urinal Herbal Drink or Tastes Like Grandma Homemade Jam, they'll wonder if they would even want these products in the first place. We'll look at the greatest fails for product names. It's amazing how the product's name can determine whether it'll be a hot seller or a laughing stock. Be prepared to laugh out loud with mistranslated names and all.
Ikari Chaos-San is the founder and creator. Shirley is truly the Oddball Extreme. Janet is our resident Arizona Magician. Heather is Queen Kitty Serenity. Mike the King of Hearts is our video game wizard. We'll also have guest appearances by our friends from the MAD HOUSE, so come and listen in!
Visit our official website at http://beyondtheairwaves.weebly.com and don't forget to join in the conversation on the forums located on our official website. We want you guys and gals, the fans, to tell us what's on your mind and what you feel is important to cover, so let us know what you want to hear.

More than Just a Good Idea: Education Research Guide to Product Development
Ideas abound for new teaching methodologies, and curriculum, and each claims to be innovative and effective. Governments throughout the world fund a wealth of research into educational strategies and instructional design every year, yet we find that these communities often don’t communicate well with each other. It is not unusual for popular educational solutions to lack research into their effectiveness and how best they can be applied. Equally unusual, many educational research programs, in which curriculum is developed, never see the commercial light of day, or broad distribution.
We will examine what educational research brings to improving products today and in the future and how publishers can take advantage of research findings to improve their offerings.
Host Michael Jay and our leading education thinkers will contemplate the following:
How closely tied is today’s research programs to educational practice?
Where are there challenges for the research community in working with commercial vendors?
How are requirements at funding agencies changing to bring these communities closer together?
How are our universities and research institutions working to accommodate the commercialization of products from their research?
How can publishers reach out to the research community to improve their offerings and gain greater credibility with the educational community?

Kimberly Wiefling, Founder and President, Wiefling Consulting, Inc. and Author of Scrappy Project Management recently spoke and presented 2 workshops at The Product Summit in San Francisco. She helps organizations achieve what SEEMS impossible, but is merely difficult. How? By turning managers into leaders and groups into teams. A physicist by education, she realized long ago the limits of technology devoid of human skills – the so-called “touchy feely” aspects of working in teams so vital to success, and so frequently overlooked.
Kimberly says, "In spite of great advances in tools and business processes, many product development teams continue to fail for entirely predictable and avoidable reasons! I'm thrilled to be invited to share my insights and experience with effective product development teams with the Global Product Management Community!"
