Getting Board Buy-In for Your Innovation Project

IdeaScale

For innovation to thrive in a company, it must be prioritized at every level. It’s not uncommon for corporate boards to lack strong expertise in the areas of innovation and technology. Taking an innovation project from idea through execution is challenging, and there can be obstacles at several places along the journey.

Speaker: Johanna Rothman, Management Consultant, Rothman Consulting Group

Is your agile team overloaded with feature requests, with no time for discovery? Do your roadmaps read like impossible wish lists? Well, you’re not alone. It may seem impossible now, but what if we said that with a few changes, you could be meeting deadlines with the ability to predict progress with accuracy, be happy with your progress against the roadmap, and be making time for near-continuous discovery?

She will take us through five common traps that agile product teams fall into – and likely you are in several of those traps right now. And good news - she has ways to avoid them!

Meet Thanos: the analog villain in the data era

mjvinnovation

*Thanos image: Marvel/Disney. In our story, the “Crazy Titan” is represented by the manager who still has an analog mindset. Managers and directors who ignore the need to develop a solid strategy for Big Data often make blind decisions. Instead of multiplying resources and generating more value, they prefer to “erase” the existence of the data – have you ever wondered why Thanos did not generate more wealth, but preferred to end half of life in the universe?

Does Speaking Up Help or Harm Your Career?

Michael Roberto

Conventional wisdom, backed by plenty of painful examples, demonstrates that speaking up at work brings with it some serious risks. Some leaders do not appreciate dissent and they have been known to shoot the messenger who brings bad news. In contrast, a new study looks at how speaking up might have some beneficial effects for a person's career. Mona Weiss and Elizabeth Morrison have published a paper titled, "Speaking up and moving up: How voice can enhance employees' social status."

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.
