Global Product Management Talk's insight:

Great debate in the comments regarding the value of product management.

 

Also relevant to the question of how product excellence is defined based on which criteria - a crappy product that makes a lot of money and customers hate, but still buy since the alternatives are worse options, or a beautifully designed product that works excellent and has not market share because of price...

APIs: Opening up Business and Providing Avenues for Growth (with images, tweets) · prodmgmttalk

April 4, 2013 Silicon Valley Product Management Association (SVPMA) Santa Clara, CA Panel Discussion. (includes additional content provided by speakers)
Global Product Management Talk's insight:

What is the API business model?


Its the same as the web biz model -

advertising, selling product, recomendations, satisfaction....


there is NO API biz model (and no santa claus).


If you understand your core biz model - you should wrap your APIs around it = key KPIs


- look for leading indicators, adoption, market share, reach


- Align APIs with that.

Software vs. Services: Why Striking the Balance is Just the Beginning | ExtensionEngine, LLC

Software vs. Services: Why Striking the Balance is Just the Beginning | ExtensionEngine, LLC | Prodmgmt | Scoop.it
Global Product Management Talk's insight:

Lah describes a typical early stage VC-backed startup as having a “3-1-6″ model, in which

30% of revenue is from the core software product,

10% is from support fees, and the remaining

60% from professional services.

 

a mature product company will often have a “6-3-1″ model which is almost the inverse distribution.

60% from core software product

30% from support fees

10% from professional services

 

The key takeaway is that your professional services team can have as much of an impact on your customer’s brand experience as your product itself. In fact, for the first part of the engagement, your professional services team IS YOUR BRAND.

 

you’ve got to balance the mix between service and software so that you get the numbers right.  But getting the people, process, and culture right is even more important.

 

In the end, if your customers have a positive experience with your services organization, they are likely to buy more products.  And if you don’t take the right approach with this important 10% of your business, you could be screwing up the remaining 90%.

Business management magazine, blogs, case studies, articles, books, and webinars from Harvard Business Review, addressing today's topics and challenges in business management.
Global Product Management Talk's insight:

The comments are as valuable as the article (or more), i.e.

 

* "when we foster relationships with open minds and scientific rigor, good things can happen." Kevin Folta via Emily McManus

 

* What we need is a general evolution in critical thought. That will take some time. http://www.ericgarland.co/

 

* this new social and digital era (actually, life) is not perfect, is it? It's just ... real, connected, and being present to what is. http://twitter.com/nilofer

 

* people who are charismatic and persuasive are celebrated by the media even when they are wrong, because a good story sells, and real scientists tend to be nuanced and boring. jisaacstone

 

* you can avoid these problems in your own business by taking the time to think through which functions should have more openness/autonomy and which functions should have more control/protection.  Lex Sisney

 

* Only once we become a society that welcomes and values learning, more than knowing will we really be able to progress forward.  Hbksloss

 

* "Process not just product."

Yes, when I look at the companies that had advantages in the 80s, they were ones who had a lock in on suppliers, land, capital, etc. When I look at the companies that are winning today, they have a lock on reinvention and process (Amazon being one of the best examples of this). http://twitter.com/nilofer

Global Product Management Talk's insight:

Let's face it - product managers and professionals are under constant battle. We struggle against time; we tug between resources and the amount to work that needs to be done. And it's the High Performing Professionals that are successful in battle.


Sun Tsu was a practical philosopher who wrote the The Art of War in about 500 B.C. For centuries The Art of War held the preeminent position among both Chinese and Japanese strategists. In 2001 Gerald Michaelson translated it for the business world, titled, The Art of War for Managers.


Based on both Sun Tsu and Gerald Michaelson's ideas, Laura Rose has brought them into the realm of High Performing Product Managers and Professionals. These same fundamental principles define our best.

When Organizational Memory Stands in the Way

When Organizational Memory Stands in the Way | Prodmgmt | Scoop.it
Create a parallel world with different people and distinct processes.
Global Product Management Talk's insight:

Infosys shifted and created a parallel world with different people and distinct processes to meet new threats by;

 

1. anticipating non-linear shifts by bringing in non-traditional voices such as, for example, key clients, and youth (who would have little, if any, organizational memory).

 

2. disciplined experiments with the primary emphasis on learning rapidly, thus eliminating the defensiveness inherent in traditional organizations.

 

3. formed special teams with a good mix of "outsiders" to challenge assumptions and bring a fresh set of skills and competencies. (Instead of optimizing the way individuals collaborate through job specifications, work processes and organizational design)

Global Product Management Talk's insight:

*   "a new breed of networks is gaining ground with the content-first model. They provide users with tools to create a corpus of content, and then enable conversations around that content."

 

--->This was my original premise for starting a Twitter Chat:

"Communities coalesce around knowledge." http://www.twittertalks.com

 

*   "Startups often fail to appreciate the gap between technology and value proposition."

 

--->This article is product/technology/feature focused and fails to appreciate the perspective from the "user" experience and the job the user wants to get done - which is to have the content be relevant, in the moment, and provide value with the most ease, without requiring new habits or retooling.

 

* Social products that win will focus on enabling users to create content first and generate conversations around it.

 

--->Tools that enable conversations around content - and make it easier to contribute value without being hampered by the tool...Why I love scoop.it, storify.com/prodmgmttalk and my newest find -  https://rizzoma.com/ (with love to Google Wave afficianados)

Reclaiming the (8 letter) "F word"

An Interview with Sheryl Sandberg by Adi Ignatius

 

- a call for women to act in their own behalf to overcome institutional and personal barriers to success.

 

- need to reclaim the “F word” if it means supporting equal opportunities for men and women.

 

- If we could get to a place of true equality, where what we do in life is determined not by gender but by our passions and interests, our companies would be more productive and our home lives not just better balanced but happier.

To gain a business advantage in today’s market, one must not only be quick, agile, and in-tune with customers, but must have a solid understanding of where the competition is at and where it is heading.
