Actuation Consulting conducted the third annual global study of product teams with the goal of continuously improving our understanding of why some product teams excel while others struggle.

“We also sought to expand our knowledge of the factors that drive or influence the best outcomes,” states Greg Geracie, President of Actuation Consulting, that has conducted the study of Product Team Performance for the past 3 years.

This survey is unique in that it receives support from a constellation of industry associations and market players – groups that generally don’t collaborate on such endeavors.

Santiago Product Talks Meetup Recap

IMG-20140907-WA0017

Last Tuesday we had another successful Product Talk meetup using the Lean Coffee format. We met at Cafe Musetti and actually had coffee!

The 5 founding members presented a problem they were having in their start-ups and together, with the group, discussed the best solution; arriving at the answer by intertwining our start-up experience and product management knowledge.

We are very happy to bring Start Up Santiago Product Talks to Chile!

After surveying our guests, we have decided to focus on quality over quantity. Having a more intimate meetup is new for start-up events in Chile and seems to be catching everyone’s interest.  Each new member will invite a guest and present until we make it to the group maximum of 25.

We are lucky to have a diverse group of founding members including:

  • Javier Graterol, originally from Venezuela, he is a true adventurer and entrepreneur inspired by the challenge of developing new ideas that generate positive impacts.
  • Mauricio Hernandez, a Chilean investment specialist and serial entrepreneur, he brings an in-depth understanding of what it is like to do business in Chile.
  • Cristian Fuentes, an industrial designer and expert in social innovation.
  • James Rochabrun, co-organizer of Start Up Santiago Product Talks, online marketing specialist and founder of Deemelo.com, a geolocalized mobile fashion app.
  • Rigoberto Cortazar, a Colombian serial entrepreneur, programmer and passionate learner.
  • Sasha Blumenfeld, community organizer and product excellence evangelist.

Our next meetup will be the 23rd of September where we will have a special guest speaker join our group and discuss solutions to our product management problems.

We look forward to growing the group in Chile and expanding the Product Talk movement.

What People are saying about the Santiago Product Talks Group

Good coffee, Great atmosphere, friendly people!

Muy buena conversacion y compartir de experiencias

Take Action: Internet Slowdown Day Today!

neutrality-3

Support today’s Internet Slowdown day of action! Tons of major Web sites (including ours) are coming together today to give a tongue-in-cheek demonstration of what would happen if the FCC caves to Big Cable and guts Net Neutrality. We’re in the Battle for the Net.

If you’re in the US, please tell decision makers how important Net Neutrality is to the free software community (even if you commented in earlier, it will be counted again). If you’re not in the US, you’ll still find this post interesting — there is precedent for other countries basing their rules on what happens here.

We are not linking to the official Internet Slowdown action page because it requires running proprietary JavaScript and heavily encourages Facebook. But we agree with their goals, so we are acting in solidarity and linking to the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Dear FCC tool, where you can take action in freedom.

The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) needs to be convinced that Net Neutrality is worth saving. The agency has asked members of the public, along with industry leaders and entrepreneurs, to tell it why Internet Service Providers should be banned from traffic discrimination. This comment window is one of the best opportunities we’ve had to make an impact.

Comments are due Monday, September 15, 2014. Submit your statement in support of Net Neutrality right away using the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s free software commenting tool.

Net neutrality, the principle that all traffic on the Internet should be treated equally, should be a basic right for Internet users. It’s also crucial for free software’s continued growth and success. Here’s why:

Media distribution giants that use Digital Restrictions Management and proprietary software to control what’s on your computer have also been fighting for years to control the network. Without Net Neutrality, DRM-laden materials could be easier to access, while DRM-free competitors could be stuck in the slow lane. Web-based free software projects like GNU MediaGoblin could also suffer the slow treatment while competitors like YouTube shell out big bucks for speedier service. The bottom line–an Internet where the most powerful interests can pay for huge speed advantages could push smaller free software projects right off the map and make it harder for decentralized projects to flourish. That’s not good for free software, and it’s not good for other innovative voices for change in the digital world.

Tell the FCC: Net Neutrality will help free software flourish.

Activists have worked for years to get to this moment. Over the last several months, things have really heated up–with Internet freedom lovers camping out outside of the FCC, serenading FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler with a special version “Which Side Are You On?” The comments flooding in to the agency have jammed the phones and crashed the FCC’s email servers. And yet, Chairman Wheeler still thinks he can get away with ignoring overwhelming public outrage and wrecking the free Internet. We have to keep up our historic momentum in order to convince a cable-industry sympathizer like Chairman Wheeler to listen to the public and protect Net Neutrality.

The deadline for comments is less than a week from now on Monday. Don’t delay–comment now!

Most technology startups never make it to the funding state, and only a small percent of those that are venture-backed generate positive returns for their investors. An even smaller number of startup founders enjoy a prosperous exit.

According to Bernd Schoner, assembling your founding team is a make-or-break move that every business faces. In fact, he says that it “determines the path and outcome of a new venture more than any decision in the life cycle of a company.”

In his new book, The Tech Entrepreneur’s Survival Guide: How to Bootstrap Your Startup, Lead Through Tough Times, and Cash In for Success (McGraw-Hill, May 2014), Bernd Schoner brings aspiring entrepreneurs face-to-face with the harsh realities of a tech startup. He provides an all-encompassing look at entrepreneurship, from inception to exiting, highlighting both the glory and the pain.

About Bernd Schoner

Bernd Schoner grew up in a small Franconia town in Germany. Despite his passion for music, gymnastics, philosophy, and opera, Bernd went on to study engineering. He made peace with his professional decision when it allowed him to travel afar, attend inspiring schools all over the world, and ultimately become a high-tech entrepreneur.

As a research assistant at the MIT Media Laboratory, Bernd worked in Neil Gershenfeld’s Physics and Media Group and the Things-That-Think research consortium. His main research focused on machine-learning techniques to model string instruments, with the ultimate goal of building a digital Stradivarius. Bernd applied the modeling techniques in a variety of commercial and artistic applications, creating unique applications, such as a digital marching cello and a giant polyphonic floorboard for the Flying Karamazov Brothers. He has authored and coauthored numerous academic papers, articles, and patents both during and since his years at MIT.

A success story in tech entrepreneurship—Bernd Schoner is the cofounder of ThingMagic, a garage-grown RFID technology company led by a small group of MIT Media Lab graduates. An early innovator of the Internet of Things, Schoner led his company through the ups and downs of a startup, ultimately selling to Trimble Navigation, a multibillion-dollar, multinational tech company, where he currently works as the VP of Business Development for ThingMagic.

Bernd holds a degree in Electrical Engineering from the Rheinisch-Westphaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen, Germany, where he was valedictorian of his class, and a degree in Industrial Engineering from Ecole Centrale de Paris, France. He received his PhD from the MIT Media Laboratory in 2000. Bernd lives with his wife in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and New York City. @berndschoner http://berndschoner.com/
