The New Business Road Test: What Entrepreneurs and Executives Should Do Before Launching a Lean Start-up (Financial Times S): John Mullins: 9781292003740: Amazon.com: Books

"ROAD TEST YOUR IDEA BEFORE YOU WRITE YOUR LEAN START-UP Thinking about starting a new business? Stop! Is there a genuine market for your idea? Do you really want to compete in that industry? Are you the right person to pursue it? No matter how talented you are or how much capital you have, if you're pursuing a fundamentally flawed opportunity then you're heading for failure. So before you launch your lean start-up, take your idea for a test drive and make sure it has a fighting chance of working.".

Amazon.com: Aptitudes of an Energized Product Manager eBook: Linda Gorchels: Kindle Store

This is a "why-to" book rather than a "how-to" book. It's targeted primarily at engineers, scientists and other professionals considering switching into product management for the first time. The "why-to" question is: why should they consider this new career? Is it a good fit for their aptitudes? People who feel a strong "fit" with their jobs--who frequently feel "in the flow" because they get intrinsic enjoyment from what they are doing--are more likely to be energized. And if they understand these innate tendencies, they can develop them further. Secondarily, this is a book for individuals new to the job, and for individuals hiring and training product managers.

Stanford's Entrepreneurship Corner: Mark Pincus, Zynga - Bing Gordon, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers - Building Hi-Tech Skyscrapers

Stanford's Entrepreneurship Corner: Mark Pincus, Zynga - Bing Gordon, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers - Building Hi-Tech Skyscrapers | Leadership and Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

"Mark Pincus, CEO of Zynga, equates building a sustainable online empire with building the skyscrapers that shaped the look of modern cities at the turn of the last century. Pincus reflects upon his 15-20 year career in hi-tech - riddled with many companies who asked him to leave - where he was set ineffective entrepreneurial goals. He discusses the change in his perspective; from garnering ROI, to offering sustainability, to building immortal "Internet treasures" - that is, the type of online utility that forever changes the world. He discusses the importance of thinking from the mountain top, and that the rest of the "distractions" - i.e. IPO's, acquisition, becoming a market leader, etc. - are just fool's gold."

In a Downturn, Provoke Your Customers by Philip Lay, Todd Hewlin, and Geoffrey Moore

"Provocation-based selling goes beyond the conventional consultative or solution-selling approach, whereby the vendor’s sales team seeks out current concerns in a question-and-answer dialogue with customer managers. And it differs dramatically from the most common approach still in use—product-based selling, which pushes features, functionality, and benefits, usually in a generic manner. Provocation-based selling helps customers see their competitive challenges in a new light that makes addressing specific painful problems unmistakably urgent. This approach isn’t right for every selling situation you’ll face in a downturn, nor does it apply only under challenging economic conditions. But for many companies that see their old approaches losing power, its time has come."

How to Map Your Industry’s Profit Pool

"Many managers chart strategy without a full understanding of the sources and distribution of profits in their industry. Sometimes, they focus their sights on revenues instead of profits, assuming that revenue growth will eventually translate into profit growth. In other cases, they simply lack the data or the analytical tools required to isolate and measure variations in profitability. Whatever the cause, an incomplete understanding of profits can create blind spots in a company’s strategic vision, leading it to overlook attractive profit-building opportunities or to become trapped in areas of weak or fading profitability."
