    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 001-Weekly Discussions for Product Managers, Developers, and Innovators

    in Business

    Hi Global Product Management Talk Audience. I am pleased to welcome you to the first episode of a new podcast for product managers, developers, and innovators by my friend Chad McAllister. 

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

    In this first episode, Chad shared five topics to introduce the  podcast:

    1. How he became fascinated with product management, development, and innovation and why he teaches the topics now as an innovation management professor and product management trainer

    2. Why he is conducting valuable interviews, including how he started interviewing during a 1-year RV trip

    3. Highlights of some innovation lessons from past interviews

    4. What to expect in the upcoming weekly interviews with professionals that can help product managers, developers, and innovators

    5. A free gift for listening

    About the Host, Chad McAllister, PhD
    I was a boy who loved to take apart things to see what was inside – what made something work. Not too much of a stretch that I found a love for electrical engineering during college. After graduating, I worked with teams in In small, large, and global companies, including four start-ups, developing products. Sometimes the products made customers into raving fans and sometimes it was left to me to pick up the pieces and figure out what went wrong. In pursuit of best practices and proven methodologies, I found great value in earning certifications from several credible professional organizations, including PMI, PDMA, and AIPMM, as well a PhD in business (focusing on requirement issues in product development). Today, with 25+ years in hands-on product development, I provide training and education.

    But the process is more important than the purpose. 

    Mention the word process to any launch team, and you are likely to hear: “Who needs processes? Don’t we have enough to deal with already with trying to get this product out the door, and now we have to create and follow some convoluted, bureaucratic process? By the time we do all of that paperwork to figure out the process and follow the process, the launch could be done!”

    Whether you are part of a large launch team or a lonely entrepreneur launching your first product, having a simple process will, believe it or not, save you time and sanity in the long run. By its nature, launching is chaotic. Often, people don’t know where to start. Do I do market research first? When do I write marketing materials? Do I wait until the product completes the final testing? It seems as if everything happens at once.
