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:

A CEO I worked for used the strategy to “create a plan for the plan.” When it appeared we were getting stuck trying to create a plan for the next big thing, he would tell me to schedule a meeting to make a plan for the plan — a meeting to discuss what would need to go into a plan since we don’t yet really know what the plan should be. It was a good strategy for taking action and moving forward.

Our guest, the exceptionally well-known Steve Johnson, has a similar tool for product projects called the Planning Canvas. It is an organized canvas consisting of six categories for creating a product plan. I think you’ll find it helpful for your planning regardless of where you are in a project — the beginning, developing, or launching.
