Innovation Confidence Course

Jeffrey Phillips

That factor was "create an obstacle course for ideas". What's wrong with an obstacle course? Shouldn't the best ideas be the result of an obstacle course? And then I remembered that my father, once and always a Marine, never referred to these as obstacle courses, but "confidence courses". Ideas, by themselves, are never going to make it through an obstacle course. The first is that there is some consistency to the obstacle course.

Living With Technical Debt: Balancing Quality and Perfection

Speaker: Cliff Gilley, The Clever PM

As a Product Manager, you probably have to deal with technical debt. Regularly. Whether you like it or not - because it can’t be avoided. Unexpected details pop up, as small as UX that needs clean-up, and as big as a previously unforeseen flaw in the infrastructure of a project. We have to accept that nobody gets away without some technical debt. And of course, the longer you take to deal with your technical debt, the more difficult it becomes to address fully. Feeling frustrated? Fortunately, we can take a step back, gain clarity, and see how the decisions we make impact our technical debt. Then, we can make decisions about how we want to balance technical debt with other priorities. Are we willing to live with some level of technical debt in order to ship product and meet deadlines? Can we mitigate technical debt to get to an MVP faster?

Your Innovation Confidence Course

Innovation Excellence

Rather, what we need is either 1) a clearly defined path for ideas to follow that will assess, develop and validate ideas effectively or 2) confident idea partners who are experienced in running the obstacle course. What we need is not to think of innovation as a lonely idea facing a huge set of obstacles.

Think Your Company’s Pursuit of Innovation has Run its Course? Think Again…

Of course, the terminology here is not clean-cut – overconfidence can sometimes be a good thing, if it encourages someone to persevere against the odds to achieve their dreams, and skepticism can sometimes be bad, if it discourages someone from following their dreams to begin with. Of course, we’ve developed new materials and designs, but the mechanical structure has remained the same – until now.
