TechCrunch | Strategy For Startups: The Innovator’s Dilemma

TechCrunch | Strategy For Startups: The Innovator’s Dilemma | An inch deep and a mile wide | Scoop.it
Strategy. Unfortunately, it suffers from a bad reputation among startups. It is associated with consultants who are paid millions of dollars only to come back with a two-by-two matrix of animals. Not that there is anything wrong with it.

What Is Facebook's Best Mobile Monetization Strategy? | ReadWriteMobile

The biggest question to come out of Facebook's S-1 filing for its IPO was how the company could monetize its robust mobile app ecosystem. You would think that a company with 423 million monthly active mobile users would find a way to squeeze some revenue out of them. Easier said than done.

What makes someone a great product manager at Google?

A quick list of 5, from an engineer's perspective. Back when I had my own team, I think my strength was #4- be positive. I probably leaned too heavily on my tech leads for #3- be an engineer. 

 

All told though, this list definitely resonates with me, although I have lots of room for improvement.

John Paton to news execs: Abandon the gatekeeper model

Melanie Faizer's curator insight, March 10, 10:20 PM

Drawing on outside sources, including social media and user-generated media, also means letting go of the gatekeeper model, a point made in this article. A poll in Time suggests millennials don't aspire to home ownership the way the previous generations did. Obvious economic factors aside, maybe ownership in general has less perceived value in this age of sharing. To that end, there is a diminishing capacity to "own" or control the story and indeed the whole news cycle.

 

Aggregation is one of the activities that will generate stories with many owners and contributors, but no single gatekeeper. This is particularly true once a story is published and has the ability, online, to take on a life of its own.

Adjacent Possible Medicine: The Age of Distribution: Social media in healthcare

A good disctinction between the needs of  knowledge acquiring (ie, learning) and knowledge distribution (teaching). In this case, the doctor has the learning, but the distribution of that knowledge to the patient can be lacking. Clearly, social and mobile will be big drivers to improve this. But as a product manager, my first thought on the two red inhalers.. changing the color or adding a big sticker to one of them would be an obvious improvement.
