TEI 318: The focus of product management—building right products or building pro
Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you the next episode of... The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD. The podcast is all about helping people involved in innovation and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers. About the Episode:  This podcast is getting a new name to better align with its purpose of helping product managers become product masters. That new name is Product Masters Now.  You don’t need to do anything to keep listening, but I want you to know the name change is coming in a few weeks, and it will show in your podcast player not as The Everyday Innovator but as Product Masters Now.  Today is a discussion with a listener who contacted me after hearing episode 304. I sent an email to listeners who are subscribed to receive the show notes in their email box that said, “If you thought your job as a product manager was building products right, think again. In this discussion, Ken Sandy shares why the job of a product manager is not building products right but building the right products.” I admit, I did phrase that to be intentionally thought-provoking. A Chief Product Officer of a global company responded to that message and we began discussing the responsibilities of building the right product and building it right. It’s such an important topic, which is why I invited the CPO to this episode. His name is Narasimha Krishnakumar, and he is the Global CPO for Wind River, a cloud-based IoT company, and he is also an advisor and a product consultant to startups and new ventures.

How to Win in the Experience Economy
How can organizations compete for customers, time, attention and money in an increasingly digital world where time is limited, attention is scarce and the ability to genuinely engage with consumers has become more difficult than ever? One of the few brand differentiators available today is to build memorable and repeatable experiences. Unlike in the past, when many of these experiences could be built in a one-to-one tactile world, digital delivery changes the game. To better understand the challenges and opportunities of building a compelling customer experience, I am joined by fellow Clevelander Jim Gilmore. Jim is the coauthor, along with Joe Pine, of one of the best business books of the 20th century, "The Experience Economy". Jim shares examples of how executives from any industry can set themselves apart from the competition be creating personalized and transformative experiences. Episode Sponsor: Auriga Auriga is a leading supplier of software and technological solutions for the banking and payments industries, and a specialist provider of innovative omnichannel solutions to banks and other financial institutions.

Providing a 360-Degree Customer Experience To a Massive Customer Base with C.H Robinson’s CCO, Chris O’Brien
Let's get into some marketing 101: Every marketer has some kind of base they market their products to. For example, if you’re in the market for a tire, Goodyear is probably on your radar. At Adobe, the marketing team attempts to appeal to customers who want to tap into their inner creative side. But what happens when you don’t have a defined customer base? What if your customer base is literally any business and every industry? _“[We’re] dealing with every single industry out there. You're getting to see customers who are going through some of the biggest challenges from going global, and that drives activity and questions in the marketplace that we try to jump on and have better answers for. They're getting into new products and services, new markets, and they need to rely on us for our expertise about how to handle customs in any marketplace.”_ Meet Chris O’Brien, the Chief Commercial Officer for C.H. Robinson. Through his 25-plus years at C.H. Robinson, Chris has seen it all. From dealing with customers at both a regional and national level, to working on supply chain management around the globe. On this episode of Marketing Trends, he details how and why the supply chain industry has seen increased visibility over the last few years, and he explains the importance of building a customer experience that puts the user at the forefront and the implications that doing so will have on your company’s culture. Main Takeaways: * Increased Visibility: The stress the pandemic has placed on global supply chains is a brand new challenge in the industry. As a result, there is increased visibility and the relevancy of companies like C.H. Robinson. * Level Up: Your customer experience should not only touch consumers at multiple levels, but it needs to be more proactive and less reactionary. By being proactive, you can create a better overall customer journey from start to finish and serve your customer in multiple ways. * Brand Over Everything: In the current climate, the power and stability of your brand is more important than ever. Maintaining a strong, stable, and meaningful stance among customers is a top priority for marketers. --- Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

128: How to Eliminate Bureaucratic Red Tape and Bad Excuses, with Martin Lindstrom
Martin's book THE MINISTRY OF COMMON SENSE: https://amzn.to/3962pE9 Meet New York Times bestselling author Martin Lindstrom (one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People). We interviewed Martin about his new book THE MINISTRY OF COMMON SENSE: How to Eliminate Bureaucratic Red Tape, Bad Excuses, and Corporate BS. Doesn’t your workplace drive you crazy when you get cc’ed on irrelevant email chains, invited to unnecessary meetings, or forbidden by company policy to do the exact thing your boss commands you to do?  These and many other frustrations stem from the same underlying cause: a lack of common sense! In an interview Martin discusses the most typical roadblocks to common sense: * (Bad) customer experience * Politics * Technology * Meetings and Power Points * Rules, Regulations, and Policies * Compliance and Legal And has remedies for all.  Martin Lindstrom is the founder and chairman of Lindstrom Company, a global branding & culture transformation firm, operating across five continents and more than 30 countries. TIME Magazine has named Lindstrom one of the “World’s 100 Most Influential People,” and for three years running, Thinkers50, has selected Lindstrom to be among the world’s top 50 business thinkers. Among the companies he advises are Burger King, Lowes, Boar’s Head, Beverly Hills Hotels, Pepsi, Nestle and Google. Lindstrom is the author of seven books including several New York Times bestsellers that have been translated into 60 languages. The Wall-Street Journal praised his book Brand Sense as “one of the five best marketing books ever published,” and his book Small Data as “revolutionary,” and TIME called his book Buyology “a breakthrough in branding.”
