    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.

    TEI041: Using Story & Prototyping in a Design Thinking Framework

    in Business

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you episode 041 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 Our Guest: Mark Zeh was already developing products using a methodology that was very similar to what IDEO was doing when he joined them. The approach has since been coined Design Thinking. He views the use of storytelling coupled with prototyping as the keys that make Design Thinking work so well.


    Mark started his design career in the US creating custom mountain bike frames in Minneapolis that carried his name. He worked for product design giant IDEO in the US and helped to lead the office in Germany. He also consulted independently to numerous companies, applying Design Thinking, and is now at Bose, the audio technology powerhouse. In addition, he leads the Entrepreneurship program at the Munich Business School. I invited him to share his insights on using Design Thinking, which he recently wrote about in the PDMA Essentials book titled Design and Design Thinking. His chapter is The Key Role of Stories and Prototypes in a Design Thinking Product Development Process.”

    TEI 037: Using Games to Help Your Group Create Amazing Products

    in Business

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you episode 037 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.


    Our Guest: Luke Hohmann was recommended by the VP of Global Innovation of the RELX Group, Jeff Honious, who was my guest in episode 28. Consequently, I knew I had to interview Luke to learn about his tools for innovators. Luke is the founder and CEO of The Innovation Games, which is now known as Conteneo. His past experiences include computer scientist, engineer, and product manager. Luke is serious about the smart application of games to optimize decision making in innovation, product development, and market research, and numerous companies use his tools. He is also the author of “Innovation Games: Creating Breakthrough Products Through Collaborative Play.” My favorite line from his profile is: “Luke’s an old school Silicon Valley entrepreneur. Instead of building a company to flip, he’s building a company to change the world.”


    Buy A Feature is an example of an innovation game. It helps the group decide which projects are most important and makes the best use of their available resources. To use it, say you have:



    20 possible projects and the total budget for all them is $20M
    But you only have $8M available for new projects
    Instead of creating a competitive environment for selecting the projects, you create a collaborative environment.
    This could be accomplished by telling eight decision-makers that they each have $1M to allocate to projects.
    They must work together to determine the projects of highest value.

    TEI 036: Product Development Lessons for Software Product Managers

    in Business

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you episode 036 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.


    Our Guest: Jeremy Dillingham has a long list of skills and experiences as a seasoned product manager, including leading teams, roadmap planning, portfolio management, Lean Startup, Customer Discovery, Agile Development, and SaaS architectures. He is a mentor at Techstars, an accelerator for technology startups. He currently serves as a Senior VP at Return Path, a company that helps organizations promote and protect their brands.


    Some favorite product management tools:



    Discovery – the process of talking with customers and validating what you are learning about the problems and needs. This involves writing a script of interview questions, prioritizing the questions, talking with customers to gain responses, and analyzing the data. Discovery sessions with customers should be done by two interviewers so one can focus on asking questions and the other can focus on taking notes.
    Experiment – one pass through the build-measure-learn loop (per Lean).
    Metrics – dashboards, KPIs, another important indicators.
    Lean Canvas – see TEI 010 episode with the creator of the Lean Canvas.

    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: 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.

    TEI 033: Fostering Innovation via a Startup-With Tim Bates

    in Business

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you episode 033 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: Tim Bates is a product creator, founder, and CEO and more recently, an interim executive for hire serving in innovation, product and senior leadership roles. Another interesting thing about Tim is that he lives in Boulder, Colorado, which is an entrepreneur and startup utopia. It is frequently recognized as one of the best places to found a startup, even rivaling San Francisco with a higher per capita percentage of computer scientists and PhDs.


    Highlights from the discussion include…



    One big difference between a startup and an enterprise is in the production of a product. Startups are more experimental while enterprises are more finance focused. Enterprises are less likely to engage in Minimum Viable Products (MVPs).
    The make-up of a product from a startup versus a large company is very different because a startup might design the product for a smaller consumer volume while larger companies may be constrained by minimal revenue hurdles.
    When a larger company is buying a startup, sometimes they may be buying it for technology reasons that fit into their roadmap of products or they might be viewing it as a disruptive product and they buy it in order to decide what to do with that disruptive product.
