Chad McAllister will help us launch Startup Product Talks Silicon Valley with a discussion on his findings on What innovators really do. To investigate answers to this question, he set out on the road, traveling the US in an RV.
Chad McAllister, innovation hacker, will share product development and innovation insights from interviews with product professionals and business owners from large and small businesses.
Are you an innovator? Got an innovative product? Chad is conducting 10 minute interviews before and after the event for his next book that begins after his travels end likely published in 2015.
Chad McAllister was a boy who loved to take apart things to see what was inside – what made something work. Not too much of a stretch that he found a love for electrical engineering during college. After graduating, he worked with teams in small, large, and startup businesses developing products – new hacks that no one had seen before. Sometimes the products made customers into raving fans and sometimes it was left to him to pick up the pieces and figure out what went wrong. Along the way he returned to school, earning a PhD in business, to deepen his understanding of how to exceed customers’ expectations. He is also PMP certified and holds professional product innovation certifications from PDMA and AIPMM. He founded Product Innovation Educators to teach anyone how to turn ideas into products that create raving fans. Chad is the author of “Turning Ideas into Market-Winning Products” soon available on Amazon. http://theeverydayinnovator.com/
