In one of the product management forums I monitor, there has been an ongoing discussion about decision ownership. For instance, does the product manager make all the final decisions regarding his or her product?
As the discussion evolved, it reminded me a guiding principal a mentor gave me early in my career. "Never lose alone."
The best successes come from collaborative efforts, working alongside others. You may get lucky as a sole…Continue

“The B2B Executive Playbook”
by: Sean Geehan
First and foremost, The B2B Executive Playbook really resonated well with me. With two decades in the software industry, most of that time in customer-facing roles, it validated much of my own experience and thoughts.
Think of B2B as a complement to…Continue
Funny, one of the things they don’t tell you as a Cloud service provider, is that the boundaries of the Cloud aren’t white, fluffy, and ambiguous. Quite the opposite as a matter of fact. They’re cold, rigid, and expansion can be expensive.
Certainly, from the consumers’ perspective, that’s exactly what the Cloud is. But use a leaf blower to clear away the puff ‘n fluff, and you’ll find there’s something rather solid inside. And, it costs money.

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to hear AJ Deeds (@MyLovingWorks) talk about content. You know, the ‘stuff’ we have to spend time on, that acts like filler material, enabling us to use our shiny objects.

Interesting article: When your offering is like the fridge of the new kitchen. The gist of it is, how do you diversify your product/service offering, if it’s basically taken for granted? People simply expect it to be there, keeping things chilled, perhaps with water/ice dispenser, but otherwise not the key item around which major decisions are based.The… Continue

Every once in a while, there comes a book you’re sorry to see come to an end. It’s not to say other books you’ve read were not tremendously enjoyable…just that they often come to an end about the time you’re ready for them to. With Enchantment, I really…Continue
