Selling Your Ideas Up: How to Overcome Objections and Get Your Ideas Approved

Daniel Burrus

In an era of fiscal and time constraints, is it possible to sell your ideas to company leaders? Yes, but the success depends on how you frame the opportunity. The first step is to avoid talking about the idea itself. While that may sound strange, it’s the primary sales rule that most people break.

Life, as-a-service

The Future Shapers

These days, the idea of ownership has started to lose its relevance as the ‘as-a-service’ revolution continues to gain traction. People have started to realise that they no longer need to purchase goods or services through hefty, one-off financial investments, but rather can now access them as and when needed and pay for them only upon usage. What has led to this change in attitude towards accessibility over ownership?

What Users Want: How and Why to Build Knowledge into Your Product

Speaker: Nils Davis, Principal, NPD Associates

Usage data allows PMs, the product team, and the whole organization to make better decisions. Good usage intelligence gives you the ability to be smarter, more active, more decisive, nimbler, and to minimize risk. But what if you don't have that data - such as before you have users? Or, what if the right decision seems to fly in the face of the data you have? Or, what if your product offers more than just the standard features? To get deeper into these questions, Nils Davis asks, "What is the most interesting thing about Instagram?" (Because who doesn't like a product that Facebook paid $1 billion for when it had fewer than 50 employees and no revenue?) Nils will use the example of Instagram’s Filters to talk about how putting prebuilt knowledge in your product can change the way your product is used for the better - putting you in the company of most market-leading products. Finally, he’ll tie it all together by explaining how the way you interpret and use usage data can impact the way your tell your product’s story, and ultimately, how your users use your product.
