I'm running for the presidency of Innovation

RTI Innovation Advisors

I thought - why not? Everyone else is running, so why be left out in the cold? If the governor of Washington State can run on the single plank of climate change, if senators who have barely introduced themselves to their colleagues can run, if a west Texas Irishman named Beto can consider running, then so can I. Of course my candidacy will be strictly tongue in cheek, and really meant to frame a more interesting question - where does innovation stand in all of this? What's my platform?

How to Create Clarity of Purpose in an Innovative Environment

IdeaScale

Innovation is sometimes at odds with what many managers want, which is to improve the efficiency with which current processes operate. Innovation takes a different approach than finding efficiency improvements. While innovation can and should improve efficiency, it often steps outside “how it’s done” to develop new ways of thinking and doing. When a company or other organization has a clear purpose, it’s easier to accept innovation.

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.

Transforming your organization such that it is continuously innovating -- continuously looking for ways to improve existing products, finding new growth opportunities or reinventing the future -- is a long, difficult journey. Like all business initiatives, enterprise transformation should be driven by a company’s vision and corporate strategy. To complete the journey, people must know where they’re going, why they’re going there, and how they’re going to get there.
