O'Reilly Webcast: Better Product Definition with Lean UX and Design Thinking
During the first part of this exclusive webcast event we welcome Eric Ries, @ericries, author of New York Times bestseller "The Lean Startup" for a fireside chat with Jeff Gothelf @jboogie, author of "Lean UX" and learn the story behind "Lean UX" and how the material was chosen for the book. During the second portion you will learn how requirements-driven product definition is a sure-fire way to get 100% of the wrong product launched. The assumptions that requirements are based on are usually not accurate enough to determine the exact solution those requirements dictate. Instead, teams should focus on creating a series of hypotheses that define potential solutions to their business problems and then work together to learn which of these hypotheses are keepers and which ideas to kill. In this webcast, Jeff Gothelf author of Lean UX, will provide an overview of how to apply the ideas behind Lean UX and Design Thinking to project definition and planning. Using a series of case studies from large companies such as Paypal, TheLadders, and Sesame Street as well as a few select startups, Jeff will cover: how recognizing your assumptions increases the speed of finding the right solutions why cross-functional, collaborative teams bring better products to market faster why managing towards outcomes generates better solutions how a Lean UX approach, coupled with Design Thinking, brings out the entire team's creative insights About Jeff Gothelf Jeff Gothelf is a designer & Agile practitioner.

Demand-Driven Supply Chain: Create a 'Pull' Supply Chain Driven by Consumer Demand
http://www.capgemini.com/consumer-products-retail/integrate-and-collaborate-across-the-value-chain/demand-driven-supply-chain When shopping, consumers want to find the right product, in the right place, at the right time. But for consumer products and retail companies, this isn't always easy. Planning and fulfillment are not always in synch. The supply and demand chain is complex. And getting real-time data is challenging. This makes it hard for them to consistently meet consumer demand. Capgemini is here to help with our Demand-Driven Supply Chain offering, which helps companies create a "pull" supply chain driven by consumer demand.

Let Us Register Your Trademarks - http://youtu.be/3lANdiFpPKQ Trademarks vs. Product Itself As I explained in the previous videos of this series (and make sure you watch them first), the function of trademarks to distinguish products and services of one business from identical or similar products or services of another business. What this means is that trademarks are not designed to grant their owners monopoly over the products or services themselves. This means two things: you cannot claim the generic name for your product to be your trademark and you cannot "trademark" the functionality of your product. Indeed, if you sell wizmos, you can't stop others from also selling wizmos by claiming that "WIZMO" is your trademark. Remember, the function of a trademark is to allow you to help customers find your wizmos among wizmos offered by your competitors, not to allow you to corner the market for wizmos altogether. This is often referred to as using the trademark as an adjective, as opposed to as a noun. You should also make sure that your once original trademark does not become generic, in which case it will stop functioning as a trademark. This was the case or almost the case with Aspirin, Kleenex, Xerox, Thermos, Jacuzzi, Linoleum and several others. This is where you should be very careful about your marketing strategy. From the marketing perspective nothing can be better than millions of customers using your brand name as in "I need a kleenex" or "Let me google that for you". However, from the trademark law perspective, such use should be discouraged, because it may lead to the death of your trademark rights. Instead you should promote the use of "I need a Kleenex tissue" and "Let me use Google search engine for you". Of course, most small business owners would say that it is a great problem to have. But even though too much fame may not seem to be a problem at the early stages of your business, this should become a consideration as you grow your business into something that will have resalable assets. Similarly, if the shape of your product is driven by certain functionality, you are not allowed to claim this shape as your trademark, simply because this would give you the monopoly on the functionality (which Is a proper subject of patent protection, but not trademark protection). The most famous examples of when companies unsuccessfully tried to claim trademark protection over the functionality of their products in Canada was in connection with LEGO blocks and the shape of a 3-head electric razor. In both these situations, the court found that what the companies really were attempting to protect was a monopoly to make the product, not to distinguish their product from similar products of others.

3 Minutes! Activity Based Costing Managerial Accounting Example (ABC Super Simplified)
For Part 2, Go To http://mbabullshit.com/ If You Liked it, Support my Free Videos at https://www.patreon.com/MBAbull Activity Based Costing Example In 3 Minutes Activity Based Costing is different from traditional costing... Traditional costing is easy because if often just divides some types of costs equally between different items. These are usually costs which are a bit difficult to divide or allocate between products, such as electricity, telephone bills, internet usage, rent, salaries, and others.However, Activity Based Costing finds ways to divide or allocate these costs more proportionally or "fairly"... ...so that we can write down a higher cost for items or products which use more of the stuff related to costs. For example, we might want to write down a higher electric power cost for burgers than for lemonades. As a result, this might cause us to sell our burgers at a higher price than the lemonades, and the lemonades at a lower price than the burgers. Of course, electric power is not the only cost in making burgers and lemonades. Therefore, we have to think about other costs as well before making our final pricing decisions.

Entropy: Embrace the Chaos! Crash Course Chemistry #20
Life is chaos and the universe tends toward disorder. But why? If you think about it, there are only a few ways for things to be arranged in an organized manner, but there are nearly infinite other ways for those same things to be arranged. Simple rules of probability dictate that it's much more likely for stuff to be in one of the many disorganized states than in one of the few organized states. This tendency is so unavoidable that it's known as the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. Obviously, disorder is a pretty big deal in the universe and that makes it a pretty big deal in chemistry - it's such a big deal that scientists have a special name for it: entropy. In chemistry, entropy is the measure of molecular randomness, or disorder. For the next thirteen minutes, Hank hopes you will embrace the chaos as he teaches you about entropy. -- Table of Contents Second Law of Thermodynamics :45 Entropy 2:01 DEMONSTRATION! 4:28 BA(OH)2•8H2O+NH4Ci 10:25 J.W.

@IndeedEng: Data-Driven Product Design
Advertising pioneer John Wanamaker famously said, "Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don't know which half." At Indeed, our experience shows that more than half of product features are not only wasted but actually have a negative impact on user experience. Thanks to rigorous A/B testing we know precisely which half, so we can ensure that every feature we add delivers measurable value. With 100 million monthly unique visitors and 3 billion monthly searches, our data provides empirical answers to (nearly) all of our product questions. In this talk, we will cover: * a motivation for why we A/B test everything * the tools and systems we have developed to measure and analyze test results and the key metrics we focus on, and * multiple case studies illustrating how years of testing has shaped Indeed's design and product thinking. We will include specific examples of how small, overlooked changes have impacted our metrics in significant and unexpected ways, and how implementing simple "no-brainer" updates on our site decreased key business metrics and caused us to re-evaluate our solutions. This talk is for designers, product managers, and engineers from companies of any size who want to understand how data-driven design makes better products. Speakers J Christopher Garcia is the User Experience Lead at Indeed. Chris ensures Indeed's products are easy to use for millions of people all over the world. He has focused on user experience at Indeed for over 6 years. As the company has grown from start-up underdog to the world's leading job search engine, he has contributed to every major product Indeed offers. Chris Hyams is SVP of Product & Engineering at Indeed. Prior to Indeed, Chris was founder of B-Side, an Austin-based company that provided digital distribution, marketing, and analytics technology for the film industry. Prior to B-Side, he was VP of Engineering at Trilogy Software.

What is Agile Development (Part 1): What is Agile Development?
“What is agile development?” It’s always been surprisingly hard to get a simple answer to this question. There are esoteric and convoluted descriptions of agile all over the web, complete with concentric circles meant to sum it all up into a simple concept, and yet that simple answer eludes us. To be fair, agile development methodology isn’t a simple thing. Sourceseek is a free service that handpicks software developers for your exact project needs. Get started here: https://www.sourceseek.com/get-started/ We’ll start with wikipedia’s agile methodology definition: From Wikipedia: Agile software development is a group of software development methods based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams. It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-boxed iterative approach, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. It is a conceptual framework that promotes foreseen interactions throughout the development cycle. The first sentence starts by saying that agile development is a software development methodology. A software development methodology is a set of practices and procedures that help a team get organized and build software. It’s not the software itself, it’s the rule-book for organizing the team. That first sentence goes on to describe an iterative and incremental development approach. This is a key concept, and if you only take away one thing about agile this is the one to take away. In agile, we do iterations (circles) where we plan, execute, then review the results so that we can refine the plan and start all over again. We love change, and we want as many iterations and feedback loops as possible during the project. At the end of that first sentence, wikipedia describes collaboration: This really just means that we emphasize partnership and collaboration, with each member of the team serving a specific role but everyone expected to be flexible and to work together. In agile, we love teamwork. The second sentence brings in the concepts of adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-boxed iterative approach, and rapid and flexible response to change. In this part of the definition, we see how it all comes together! I interpret this sentence like this: ● We are adaptive. We don’t plan it all at the beginning and then stop planning. We do iterations and we are adjusting the plan all the time. This is why agile is so good for product development, we change and improve as we learn. ● We love evolutionary development. This is essentially the same thing, we learn as we go and we adjust, refine, improve... ● Time-boxing. This basically means that we manage our project using set blocks of time, like days or weeks, and we try to get as much done in those time-boxes as possible. This is the reverse of managing features. We consider what features we can build next week rather than looking at a list of features and asking how long it will take to build them. ● Rapid and flexible response to change: this is critical, and along with ‘iterations’ is the core answer to the question ‘what is agile development?’. We move fast, we are flexible, and we are truly ‘agile’! This is our mantra - fast and flexible - say it again and again!! What is agile development? ● Agile is a way of managing software projects. ● Agile is iterative, and goes in repeated cycles instead of in a long list of steps.. ● Agile is super collaborative and team-oriented. ● Agile is adaptive, constantly changing and refining plans, and moves fast! In almost every project, the client has a harder time expressing what they want at the beginning, and it gets gradually clearer towards the end. The can be a frustrating experience as mid-project changes are pretty disruptive. Let’s try it in agile. 1) Client hires developers by the hour, day, or week. 2) Client describes what they want to the developers 3) Developers start making designs and programming the theme based on what they client thinks they want. 4) Developers show their progress to the client constantly, even every day, to make sure they are on track. 5) The client makes frequent changes and tweaks, always refining the plan and improving the result. The developer also has input and suggestions. 6) The team keeps going until the project is done.. It all sounds very good, and it can be, but the reality is that the agile development methodology requires a solid team of smart people who know what they are doing or it can be a train wreck. It also requires that the entire team (client included) be committed to an honest, forthcoming approach that emphasizes success for the client.

Pricing and Product Design in a Data-Driven Economy
2013 INFORMS Annual Meeting Minneapolis Plenaries and Keynotes Presented by Guillermo Gallego, Columbia University In this talk, Gallego discusses efforts by companies like Hewlett Packard to use big data to understand customer's buying and product substitution patterns under competition. He also reports on efforts to design and price bundles as branded products by companies like Air Canada, and efforts to offer consumption and fulfillment options by companies such as United Airlines and Hilton Hotels and Resorts. He also discusses how companies can mine sales, prices and product attributes to develop product similarity metrics to identify products whose prices are out of range, products that are candidate for discontinuance, and opportunities for the introduction of new products. Gallego further describes advances in assortment and price optimization that rely on discrete choice models. Finally, he discusses how these capabilities can be used to inform novel approaches to product and service design that rely on real options that allow sellers to hedge against demand uncertainty while providing tangible benefits to buyers.

Editing with Adobe Premiere Pro. // There's a little confusion of what content marketing actually is. We know it has something to do with all this Facebook and blogging stuff that people are doing and we know we need to be a part of. But other than that, the story stops. To really represent your brand online effectively, you need to know where you're doing what you're doing. I've said that a million times. But that includes knowing the true meaning of content marketing if you're going to do it and following through completely. You may come here and watch videos because you just want to know what to do and how to execute the right way, and I commend you for that. But knowing the true meaning of this whole thing, content marketing, whether it's Facebook, Twitter, blogging, videos, etc. is really what's going to set you up to be successful. If you don't know what you're doing it, it will not work. The phrase "content marketing" doesn't stop at the word content. Yes, blog posts and tweets are a part of what this strategy is but it's only the very, very beginning. You have to get past the word "content" and understand what we're looking at as a whole. Content marketing is the plan for creating value for your potential client. Content is indeed a part of that equation because it's a medium for how to deliver that message. So what does that content look like and how is it valuable to to your customer? But that's still not everything. Otherwise, we would end up creating a lot of content that we find valuable and never know how it actually affects our audience. You have to take the definition a step further to get to a return for your efforts. What's valuable for your customer is important, no doubt. But true content marketing is providing them with what's truly valuable to them, so much so that it drives an emotion that makes them want to act in some capacity. That action could be a lot of things and hopefully it's what you planned for. But most importantly it's becoming an advocate for your brand, sharing with their communities and growing the sales of what you have to offer because of the value you've provided with no strings attached. My site, for instance. I create videos for you. I have a regular schedule of valuable content that I share with you. You trust me. You get excited about the content with me. And we're growing a relationship that way. How do I get paid back? Sometimes I sell a product here and there, but in all actuality I'm making you better. Because if you're going to hire me some day when you need me in a greater capacity I need to help you get on your way to growing your business. Know what I'm sayin'?

Social Business - Business Use Cases - Product Development
Social Business - Business Use Cases -- Product Development By removing barriers between people, a successful Social Business can quickly and cost-effectively bring new solutions to market and better meet customer needs. By using social platforms for co-creation, Social Businesses can engage a larger community beyond their own R&D staff. This helps to resolve product development challenges that are too big for in-house resources to handle themselves. In 'crowd-sourcing' for example, a wide range of participants are asked to submit ideas, which are then evaluated, often by the crowd itself. Social Business can help organisations to increase revenue by responding to markets faster and with more innovations. It provides an effective means to create and engage distributed product teams in an easily manageable way. These communities can work via a common dashboard with complete visibility across project details and people skills. This increased visibility across multiple work-streams eliminates silos, reduces project overlaps (which waste resources) and enables re-use of improved practices across communities. Being a Social Business will also bring increased process innovation. For example CEMEX, a global cement supplier, created a social network to accelerate new product development through open collaboration among 20,000 employees. This resulted in a new global brand of cement mix being delivered in less than 4 months, compared to 12. This article was taken from Intec's whitepaper - Social Business - Connect.Collaborate.Compete.

Join us for talks, workshops, and new perspectives on UX, and meet others in the experience design community. This video of ThougthWorkers Cassandra Shum and Praful Todkar was recorded at the Sept 5th XD NYC meet-up held at the ThoughtWorks NYC office. On a recent project ThoughtWorkers designed a platform bottom up, starting from customizations to Android operating system, all the way up to consumer applications. In doing so, ThoughtWorkers found out the hard way that, designing user experience for a platform is very different from designing user experience for consumer applications.

Maier Racing Mustang: More grip than a GT3? - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Mike Maier If you've ever driven a bone-stock mid-1960's Ford Mustang, then you know that these little cars make wonderful cruisers. They possess movie-star good looks and turn heads everywhere. Drive them hard though and you'll soon realize that what lies beneath that sheet metal is usually in need of some serious improvement . Mike Maier of Maier Racing is the owner of this stunning blue 1966 coupe, a car that was supposed to have been bought as a play toy for him and his wife. However when you grow up in a racing family, leaving things alone is generally not an option. Little by little the Mustang evolved away from the family hot-rod and into a test bed for new parts. More importantly than that though, it's now one of the baddest street 'Stangs on the planet. Most people will tell you that "Bigger is always better"... one drive in the Maier Racing '66 coupe however may make you rethink that statement entirely.

Ken Rona on Setting New Product Development Career Goals
In Chapter 15 of 15 in his 2012 Capture Your Flag interview, digital media executive Ken Rona answers "What Goals Are You Setting as You Look to What Comes Next in Your Business Career?" Rona notes he was hired by Turner to do a specific thing. As his software product development project reaches its halfway point, Rona and his team begin evolving from a minimal viable product, or MVP, to the consumer marketing to foster adoption. Ken Rona is a Vice President at Turner Broadcasting, where he leads teams across advertising sales, big data software development and business strategy. Rona earned a BA and MA in Political Science from Stony Brook University and a PhD in Behavioral Economics from Duke University. View more career videos like these at http://www.captureyourflag.com Follow us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/captureyourflag Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/captureyourflag Transcript: Erik Michielsen: What goals are you setting as you look to what comes next in your business career? Ken Rona: You know, I think you’d like to think that people have kind of--always know what the goal is. When I got hired at Turner I got hired to do a very specific thing. And we’re about halfway through that build I think. Maybe a little less, so my goal is to finish that build, so goals right now in terms of on a business sense are subcomponents of the build and making sure that thing is adopted so one of my big concerns—one of our big goals right now is, now that we’ve built a—there’s this phrase in the startup community called minimally viable product, it’s like how little do you need to –a software product, or even a hardware product, you need to make something interesting to a consumer. That the consumer would actually really want to pay for. Or use it, right? So we’re past that point, we’ve got to a point of the analytic tools we’ve created are more than minimally viable. In fact, they are some of the enterprise class tools that are available out there are—we are finding that we actually have a lot more functionality in our home built stack—home built analytic stack than these tools that have been being developed for 15 years. So now the question and it’s very clear, anyone who looks at it says, yes, of course. Now the challenge is in getting those tools adopted. So the challenge, and it’s always this way in technology. The challenge is not the building of it, although that can be challenging if you’re the IRS or the FBI who takes you know way, way longer they need to build something. But my staff is very competent, really good developers; they stood this thing up really fast. We have a really nice stack, a really nice set of tools. Now the challenge is getting these things adopted by the users. So our kind of primary goal now is, now that we’ve built something that is more than minimally viable, how do we get folks use it. I mean if we can’t get folks to use it, one of two things, right. Either we were wrong, we got it wrong, or we didn’t do a good enough job of advocacy. This is why you have evangelists. So I think the phase we’re shifting into a little bit is now more of an evangelism phase, so my goals kind of professionally are for people to adopt the tools, and that we get business impact from it. That’s what really drives success I think for certainly how I perceive it. If we’re not having business impact, what did we do it for? You know, personal goals, are I think are pretty much the same, you know, keeping the wife happy, keeping the kids healthy. You know, helping their development. And I think that’s—the only goal I would add is, it is a goal—I really hope next year, I really, really hope next year when we do this, I can say, “Erik, I finally bought that convertible.” That is really—That is a goal. My wife—I think my wife is blanching because when I show her the kind of car I want I think she can’t get her head around the fact that it is twice as expensive as any other vehicle she has ever owned. And truthfully, I’m having a bit of a hard time with it too but I’m just gonna go for it.

The hole in Agile and how to build products customers want to buy by Donato Mangialardo
We have shipped. Everything works as intended, but...customers don't like our product. They won't buy it. "We have well executed a plan to achieve failure." (Eric Ries, the Lean Startup) This too-often real example ignites this seminar's topic, which is aimed to inspire product organizations to connect to the business. In other words, market-driven. Despite the fantastic growth of the Agile movement, there is often still a gap between successfully building software and commercial success in the market. Pragmatic methodologies, Buyer, User Personas and and real examples will be used.

RV QUICK TIP: Tidy Up Your Rig in 10 Minutes
We picked up our new RV on May 17th, 2005. For its 8th birthday today, we're going to do a quick exterior cleanup to show you how we keep it looking good between washings. As long as you haven't driven in the rain since the last time you washed your RV, this quick tip will spruce up your rig in about 10 minutes or less. FEATURED & RELATED PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON: California Car Duster: http://amzn.to/2s1UDaK Even when the weather's dry, dust accumulates when driving, especially at the rear of the RV, or when boondocking in dusty areas. To quickly remove dust from an otherwise clean RV, our favorite cleanup tool is the original California car duster. Just give it a good shake before and after each use to quickly, easily and safely remove the dust from your RV. The long head and long handle make it perfect for cleaning large areas and reaching high places. Of course the California duster was originally designed to clean cars and your toad is no exception. We've had this duster for several years now, and even though it actually works better once it gets a bit dirty, it's finally time to replace it with a brand-new one. Now we'll retire our old duster to dirtier jobs, like cleaning wheels, tires and mud flaps, without having to use it on painted surfaces any more. Before using a new California Duster for the first time, place it on newspaper for 48 hours. The duster works by using paraffin wax to attract dust particles, and the newspaper absorbs excess wax. It might leave some streaks during the first few uses, but that will stop once it gets a little dusty. I used to work in the car industry and attended several auto shows as a manufacturer's rep. The California Duster was THE standard for keeping cars dust-free at the shows. Even many of the most exclusive luxury and sports car makers used them on their cars, so we know they're designed to be safe and scratch-free, even on the most expensive finishes. We've been using a California duster for years and think it's the best 10-minute spruce up you can give your RV. The piano music is my own performance of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag from 1899. WONDERING WHAT'S THE BEST GEAR TO USE ON YOUR RV? Here's all of our favorite equipment that we use ourselves and recommend to friends: http://thervgeeks.com/our-favorite-gear/ Join us at http://TheRVgeeks.com for more great RVing content! Full-Time RVers since April, 2003, we share DIY (do it yourself) RV maintenance, repair, travel, upgrade and operational tips & tricks. Many RVers are eager to learn more about using, maintaining and caring for their rigs. We hope our experience can help others go DIY, saving time & money, plus the satisfaction of a job well done. We're handy RVers, not professional technicians. We're happy with the techniques and products we use, but be sure to confirm that all methods and materials you use are compatible with your equipment and abilities. Regardless of what we recommend, consult a professional if you're unsure about working on your RV. Any task you perform or product you purchase based on any information we provide is strictly at your own risk.

Milwaukee Agile 2/12/2013 - Fifty Shades of Behavior Driven Development
2/12/2013 Milwaukee Agile: Fifty Shades of Behavior Driven Development From a software developer's point of view, come join us for a pop-culture, restaurant and fast food referencing presentation that utilizes behavior driven development to address some of the problems we still face in an agile world. So your team has made the transition to agile and your work is broken down into user stories. It makes perfect sense to break work down into smaller chunks, but now you're running into problems with estimation and communication. Your team is delivering value but it's been discovered that user stories are thrashing through the analysis, development and QA processes. What is going on here? Come a software development process with a deceiving name: behavior driven development. Behavior driven development (BDD) is a process that captures how a software system functions with sets of acceptance criteria. From a developer's perspective this appears to be test driven development at a higher level with potential automation of those tests. However, if you take a step back and look at the bigger picture, it's about functioning better as a team to deliver value to your clients. We will take a look at the process of gathering standardized acceptance criteria from the perspective of the four main stakeholders in a project: the product owner, analyst, developer and QA. Teams involving more stakeholders in the grooming process can experience increased collaboration and better communication. User story estimations can be more accurate and domain specific knowledge and terminology become ubiquitous as user stories move through the development cycle. Standard terminology propagates into software and creates living documentation within the code base. Software developers have increased productivity while creating leaner and better software with the process of TDD. These are a few advantages to BDD and there are more to explore. There are no silver bullets to anything so we will also address the disadvantages as well.
