    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.

    Study of Product Team Performance 2014 Findings

    in Business

    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.

    PROCESS OR PRODUCT / BUSINESS IS A PROCESS NOT "JUST" A PRODUCT

    in Business

    BUSINESS IS PURPOSE; THAT HAS PRINCIPLES; THAT'S BASED ON A PROCESS; PROCEDURE THAT DEVELOPS A PRODUCT THAT LEADS TO
    A PROFIT; THAT RESULTS IN PEACE.
     


    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.
