- What about the machines' responsibility? Will the robot be ever responsible for any damage?
- Chips under the skins, wires in our skulls, cars rushing while the driver is sleeping - any chance to make that ethical?

#20 What are the secrets of the best product managers?

February 17, 2020
To succeed, product managers must demonstrate a specific set of core competencies — no matter where they work. But, the role of the product manager is particularly hard to define. They operate with a wide range of responsibilities and huge pressure to deliver results, often without reporting authority.
The future of a product is never predictable. As it meanders — discovering, fine-tuning, and pivoting — product managers shape the way forward, far more so than in a larger organization which have steady-state goals and plenty of minds to guide the way.
With never enough resources and always discovering unclear paths, product managers are flying the plane while building it. This brings out either the best or the worst in a person, but the opportunity to drive impact is tremendous. From strategy and positioning to pricing and customer retention, they are challenged to do more with less.

#19 Go To Market Strategy framework. Step 1 - capture trends into four puzzles.

December 14, 2019
Trends capture provides a 360 perspective of the external circumstances that affect product launch and go-to market startegy. While defining future objectives for a product or service, trend capture is used as a basis on which future go to market strategy assumptions are designed. Market trend capture involves getting four puzzles together:
Puzzle 1: Understand trends in consumer needs (value propositions shift and expectations)
Puzzle 2: Shifts in Consumer Perception of Value are dynamic, and it necessary to track the real-time
Puzzle 3: Capture the cost drivers which trends are providing
Puzzle 4: Grasp and track change and evolution of the niche
Curious what trends capture presentation/visualization looks like? Please go to my post and study a few examples I have uploaded for you: click this link.

#18 Go-to-market strategy and a new product launch framework

December 6, 2019
New products and product innovation are the best ways to promote growth. Apple, Microsoft, Sony, and thousands of small and mid-sized companies' managers understand that the launch of new products is necessary. Customers are impatient, they expect new features, enhancements, and continuously developing a value proposition, and they are ready to pay for it (either with money or data).
At the same time, 95% of products fail because companies are mostly busy with building features, and they don't develop effective Go-To-Market strategies. Figuring out and mastering a go-to-market approach is no trivial task — it separates the organizations that will be prosperous and sustainable from those that won't.
Grab the podcast with the framework, which I think, is useful in building compelling go-to market strategy.

#7 If You’re Doing Innovation For The First Time, Do Not Make This $10M mistake. And How Smart Incumbents Can Respond To External Disruptive Threat by Artificial Intelligence and Product Strategy podcast

March 1, 2019
Do Not Make These Mistakes When Responding To Startup Threat Speed:
1. Do not try converting your employees into "intrapreneurs" because its oxymoronic and will cost you. Like $10M.
2. Do not wait and see. Be a fast follower instead. Do this on the outside. Build from Lego blocks. AI is one.
3. By all means have a process if you want to work with startups. Especially if you don't acquire them outright and fully. Get startups to build for you. They are better at building new things.
4. Experiment to run fast like entrepreneurs do. Use half-finished prototypes to go to market to get to proof to shut down all politics and executives with years of experience of doing the same thing over and over again.
5. We studied #Fintech sectors at the flapping edge of disruptive Armageddon: shareholders are rewarding companies for experimenting.
6. Small teams are better at disruptive innovation 'cus they have no bills to pay or as, Stanford MBA's among you would say "solve for disruption, not vested interest."

#6 How entrepreneurs remove problems.

January 14, 2019
Dear CEO, CMO, General Manager or innovation freak,
we have a new episode for you. Jump into this podcast and assimilate:
a) Entrepreneurs have always-on curiosity and fall in love with problems. Their obsession with problems is more than a 9–5 job.
b) Entrepreneurs leverage their ecosystem while companies fixate on internal specialists or buy expensively via consultants. Entrepreneurs crowdsource all the time. Delivers better skills and faster solves because ideas that bubble out of the ecosystem are more disruptive cus they connect the dots across different fields in more unusual ways. Hear about a marine biologist solving a tech company problem in the podcast.
c) More curious? Find out about a start-up that “triangulates” weather off mobile devices, conductivity, plus home based IOT and sells data to … airline and autonomous vehicle companies. Can energy go the way of email (hint: free data-driven model) and about the entrepreneur's version of the gas station of the future.
d) Because you attended a “Disrupt/Transform” conference last week may make you more energised, but this will pass. Companies naturally stifle all good ideals because they have a very good reason to. If you can afford to have your ego deflated work with entrepreneurs side by side as the least knowledgeable guy in the room. You’ll get to know the startup mindset. Contact us for details.
e) Be obsessed on the end-user. Drive solipsistically if/when there’s no end user yet by totally owning the product and problem. Solve for yourself.
f) Idea not working? Change tack quickly. YouTube’s original slogan was “Tune In, Hook Up.” Please don’t shout “pivot” every step of the way because nobody does that.

#5 Why speed matters?

December 5, 2018
This episode will pack your head with the following food:
- Nokia did not believe iPhone was the competition, they believed iPhone was threatening the PC.
- Set culture from tight to loose. Experimental approach questions the status quo and must be open to first-hand outside stimuli. Execution requires tight grip. Know when to have which. Reward appropriately for improving # of experiments, not success rate.
- Remember % hits correlates with % misses: the only way to get more hits is by trying more: so increase productivity and reduce batch size. Zara puts out 40,000 SKUs to market/year and ships every 1-2 weeks – faster than startups.
- You will retain best entrepreneurial staff because they will shine in new roles. Change culture from top-down driven to "let the best ideas percolate."
- Slack is one of the biggest unintended consequences in business apps, valued at $7bn.
- It's not the speed that kills, but coming to an abrupt stop. Keep strong momentum and become the experiment factory (Jeff Bezos).
