The shift to Product as a Service - a chat with me, Tom Raftery!
A scheduling snafu meant that I was without a guest for this episode today, so I did what any good podcast host does in this situation, I stepped in and filled the breach myself!
I normally prefer to let my guests shine on this podcast, showing off their expertise while I stay mostly quiet, throwing in the occasional question from time to time.
Obviously this time, that wasn't a possibility, so I riffed on the global shift we are seeing to Product as a Service - what it is, why it is happening, and why it is a win, win, win (for the manufacturer, the customer, and the planet).
I finished referencing the automotive industry, and drawing from a recent Forbes article I wrote called the iPhonification of the Auto Industry, which speaks a lot to this and other related topics. Worth a look if you are interested and have a few spare cycles.
If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn. Audio messages will get played (unless you specifically ask me not to).
