A few weeks ago I treated myself to a deep tissue and hot stone massage. The place I went to was recommended by a friend, so I was looking forward to it. As someone who likes massages and spends some time watching YouTube videos on it, I’m “somewhat demanding” for what I’m paying for. Still, I arrived with no expectation and simply accepted a recommendation. The massage by itself was ok. Nothing out of the ordinary.

How to Measure Your Organization’s Innovation Maturity

IdeaScale

Before you can assess your organization’s innovation maturity, you have to ask and answer the question, “What does innovation mean to us?”. Unless your organization has deliberately built a culture of innovation throughout, answers to that question will vary – perhaps widely – among those you ask.

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?
