    Product Mastery Now 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: 

    Most of us have become product managers and then moved on (or will move on) to product leadership based on our experiences and knowledge. We encounter tools along the way—some that are helpful and some that are not. I want to explore experiences that help you be a better product professional.

    Joining us is a Tom Leung, Director of Product Management at Google Health and previously at YouTube. He also hosts the Fireside Product Management podcast.

    Product Mastery Now 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: 

    Is your organization innovative? Is innovation part of the culture and an aspect of the organization’s reputation? Or is innovation something that is just talked about, but you know real action isn’t taking place—what’s been called Innovation Theater. If so, today we are talking about changing that—how organizations can be more innovative and the action leaders need to take to make it happen.

    To help us is Tendayi Viki. He is a returning guest, having joined us in episode 308. Tendayi is an author and innovation consultant. He holds a PhD in Psychology and an MBA. He is also an Associate Partner at Strategyzer, where he helps large organizations innovate for the future while managing their core business.

    Product Mastery Now 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: 

    Today we are talking about product leaders using legal resources. When and why should product VPs, CPOs, and other senior product roles involve legal resources? While that question is directed to executive team roles, I expect product managers will also discover how legal resources can be wisely leveraged.

    Joining us is Ryan Lewendon, partner at the Giannuzzi Lewendon Law Firm, helping founders navigate growth and reach their full potential. He has helped several brands grow and overcome obstacles, especially consumer product companies. This has included successful exits with acquisitions by companies that include Coke, General Mills, Boulder Brands, Bacardi, and more. I’m looking forward to learning from his experience.

    Product Mastery Now 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: 

    Today we are discussing crowded product categories and the challenges when trying to enter them with a new product. For context, we’ll use the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) category, which is indeed crowded. Joining us is Jeroen Corthout, co-founder of Salesflare, the simple yet powerful CRM. 

    This is a topic I’m close to as I have been evaluating CRMs to keep track of the guests I have on this podcast as well as the companies I have the pleasure of helping to improve their product management and innovation. In full disclosure, Salesflare gave me a license to use their CRM at no cost. For this episode, what I’m interested in is what Jeroen learned entering such a crowded market.

    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: 

    Today we are talking about when to use or not to use Agile for your product projects. Products need to get released quickly and correctly, creating more value for customers. Is Agile the answer? Maybe, but the details matter.

    To explore the topic with us, Mark Madsen is here to share his experience. He has built and led project organizations in a variety of companies, including Lego, Saab, and Danfoss. He has seen the conditions needed for Agile to work well and when it doesn’t.

    Product Mastery Now 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: 

    How do you figure out what your customers want? Stop and think about it for a few seconds. Is your product work based on what Sales wants, what an Executive or other HiPPO wants, what your competitor is doing, some insights gained about your customers, or something else? While we all have constraints, insights about the people using our products and the needs they have help us develop better products.

    To explore getting customer insights, Mike Mace is with us. He leads market strategy for UserTesting, which is a firm that helps you experience what your customers experience, getting human insights within just a few hours to help you design and deliver exceptional products. Mike has a long history in product work, spending a decade at Apple, helping Silicon Graphics, then contributing to growth at Palm, as well as assisting other organizations to be more successful with their products. He is going to help us learn how to quickly get customer insights for our product work.

Good content

I find the interviews and content good, only challenge is the unrelated ads which don’t make sense!

Informative for Product People

Covers the gamut of issues relevant to people managing products from all perspectives and industries. Might be partial to software products, but attempts to be inclusive across all industries and domains. Like a weekly lesson. Some are more philosophical and strategic than others.
