    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.

    SwCA Episode 130: MYTH... - “Trying to lean on someone who bends is futile.”

    in Business

    SITE: http://www.courtneyanderson.com/swca-episode-130-myth-warriors-series-trying-to-lean-on-someone-who-bends-is-futile.html

    SHOW NOTES: In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. The topic for this episode is, “Trying to lean on someone who bends is futile.”

    In many shows we share quotes from famous (or infamous) or notable individuals. Yet, information comes from all types of sources. I found the quote that is the show topic at http://forums.narcolepsynetwork.org/index.php?/topic/6237-breaking-up-cuz-he-just-doesnt-care/.

    We are not evaluating the credibility of this public internet discussion forum, but instead are assessing the content of the assertion. Is it a myth that when we try to lean on (emotionally or physically) someone who bends that it will be pointless (or futile)?

    If our goal is to lean on someone and remain standing (literally or figuratively), it is logical that if I lean on someone for support (to remain standing) and they bend that I will fall. Thus, it is futile to lean on something that is not stable enough to support (or hold) me. But, how do we know who will bend and who will hold us? The most helpful answer is to remember what the person did the last time you tried to lean on them.

    "Definition of FUTILE 1:  serving no useful purpose :  completely ineffective <efforts to convince him were futile> […]” Futile. (n.d.). Retrieved June 5, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/futile 

    The alternative scenario is in, “He ain’t heavy, mister… he’s my brother.” This idea has been in popular culture and you can read about it at http://www.boystown.org/blog/the-story-behind-he-aint-heavy.

    So, who are you going to lean on?
