    #91 Design Changes from Prototype to Manufacturing

    #91 Design Changes from Prototype to Manufacturing

    This is a call from a while back.
     
    ********************************
     
    Yesterday we went to the Scottish Highland Games in San Diego. There was a very intriguing event. Sheep dog after sheep dog was graded on how well they could guide sheep through various obstacles on a specific course.
     
    The dogs had to respond to unpredictable turns the sheep would make. Uphill, downhill. Turn to the left. Wait. Corral the stragglers. Get all the players going the same way. And they had to handle a slow down when the sheep wanted to graze.
     
    It reminded me of what it can feel like to create a product or business.  Lots of twists and turns with unpredictable things to respond to.
     
    What amazed me was how well the dogs and handlers could see what was starting to happen in such early moments. It was almost as if they were predicting it.  
     
    The actual truth was simply that they knew the most likely patterns. They understood the behaviors and roles. 
     
    Moving from a prototype into actual production can feel a lot like herding sheep. The people and businesses that are most successful are the ones that can navigate the process.
     
    So today's the day we talk about "Design for Manufacturing". (Some people abbreviate and just say DfM.) 
     
    Anyone who is making a product, or trying to license a product, needs to understand what the heck DfM is.

    #90 Using Your Product Story

    #90 Using Your Product Story

    A "product story" is anything you say about why you've made the product, what it does, why it looks the way it does and those thousands of other details that kept you up at night. 
    Only some parts are useful when you are talking to someone else. And the parts that are useful are different based on who you are talking with.  Plus, the definition of "talking with" includes actual conversation, email, packaging, social media, billboards, and whatever other way people find out about you! 
    Effectively telling your product story to the right people at the right times involves editing.

    There are some words in the product world that get tossed around in confusing ways. Most of the time it's only baffling because no one's explained it to you. "Merchandising" is one of them.
    Did you know solving merchandising problems can add tremendous amounts of money to your business? It reignites sales, helps you win over buyers and keep massive accounts happy! Plus, it can add whole new revenue streams to your company. 
    Super cool, right?!

    #86 Product Goals That Work Part 2

    #86 Product Goals That Work Part 2

     
    On Friday I walked a business colleague through a short version of the two processes you are seeing. He was blown away by the insights that came out for his business this year. And we only did the exercise for 15 minutes to demonstrate it! 
     
    When you really take on what I'm going to show you, it is transformational. Eye-opening. Surprising. For you and your business. 
     
    And did I mention it's FUN?! Yes, fun.. 
     
    (No boring spreadsheets involved. No tedious analysis.)
     
    What we are going to do with you uncovers strengths, desires and what satisfaction with your business will really look like.  Then the process turns them into effective actions you can take. But.....
     
    You've got to show up and do the work.
     
    This process expands clients' multi-million dollar businesses. If it can do it for them, it can do it for you. Wherever you are with your business.  
     
    In today's Part 2 about Product Goals we're about dreaming bigger. Then we're moving the dream to grounded reality and actual things you can handle.
