RTI Innovation Advisors

You know something has become passe when you see it used as a meme on Twitter frequently. That's actually what prompted this diatribe. I doubt there's any meme I dislike more than "The future belongs to.". In recent years we've been told that the future belongs to the swift, the smart, the agile, and more recently to the digitally transformed. Not that long ago we were told that the future belonged to Nokia, because before 2000 it was the king of the hill in handsets. Then along came Apple.

Balancing Data and the Human Element for Successful Innovation

IdeaScale

Data can tell us a lot, but not everything. The numbers, so the saying goes, do not lie. The idea that cold, hard data tells us everything we need to know about everything is hugely popular at the moment. Algorithms and machine learning will tell us all we need to know, right? Perhaps, but history says perhaps not. No matter how big the dataset, data mining and analysis have limits—or the “head” approach—and the same is true of “softer” method like customer surveys, the “heart” approach.

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?

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.
