The shift to Product as a Service - a chat with me, Tom Raftery!
Play • 27 min

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).

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.
