  2. Design as Product Strategy: Bringing design thinking to product management in order to create products people love (Jon Kolko) IA Summit Library

    Most companies consider strong product management to be the “glue” that holds together products as they are being conceived of and built, and most companies treat product management as either a marketing or an engineering activity. But modern startups like Airbnb and large corporations like JetBlue or Starbucks have proven that industry disruption is possible not by focusing on adding features or just improving sales, but instead by focusing on providing deep, meaningful engagement to the people that use the products or services. This engagement is achieved by designing products that seem as though they have a personality, or even a soul. These products feel less like manufactured artifacts and more like good friends.

    Design doesn’t refer only to aesthetics or usability, although these are things consumers are most likely to notice or appreciate. Design is both a noun and a verb. It can mean the visual or tactical quality of a product, as well as the process by which products are conceived. Design is a more comprehensive way of thinking about people and human behavior than engineering or marketing. It is a product development process that uses empathy with a community of potential consumers in order to identify problems to solve. Design leverages a certain way of thinking in order to infer solutions to those problems that will have meaningful emotional appeal, and a strong market fit.

    In this talk, you’ll learn how to apply that process yourself using these four steps: - Identify product/market fit, by seeking signals from communities of users - Identify behavioral insights, by conducting ethnographic research - Sketch a product strategy, by synthesizing complex research data into simple insights - Define the product details, using visual representations to simplify complex ideas

  9. A Theory of the Universe of Nonfiction Books (And the Art of Creative Theft) | Rainmaker.FM

    There are more than two approaches to writing non-fiction.

    Shawn Coyne has four: Academic, How-To, Narrative, and Big Idea.[http://www.storygrid.com/nonfictions-big-genre-silos/]

    Others have peeled out Journals, Biographies, and Memoirs – but those probably fall under narrative, as they tend to follow an arc of discovery/redemption (following Joseph Campbell’s “Hero with A Thousand Faces.”) [http://www.mfschools.org/user/woodhala/students/6typesofnonfiction.pdf]

    David Miller stretches this out to 16 types of non-fiction [http://matadornetwork.com/notebook/1-types-of-nonfiction-and-how-to-write-them/], but (like copywriting itself) they don’t often end up as books. Most of these that do tend to follow the four categories above, except where they run into “navel gazing” which might or might not fall into How-To, except the format is radically different. (And where the Eastern School of only answering a student’s questions probably again falls under narrative as an arc, depending on how it’s edited. Lao Tze’s Tao and the iChing do not fall under the above, as far as I can tell.)

    Note that Coynes is talking about commercially successful books. The two exceptions I would say exist outside of Coyne’s breaktdown are collections (such as cooking recipes, poetry, prose, photography, essays, etc.) and the “avant-garde” approach (examples would be Gertrude Stein’s “Tender Buttons”) where the author is purposely breaking rules for effect. (Coyne’s is talking from his experience as an editor, which is not needed for collections and avant-garde.)

    – – – –

    There is also a point that Gladwell use of Big Idea, as pointed out about “Blink”, didn’t start off with the premise and then put modules of stories after it. Each chapter built up to explain an additional point of his Big Idea on top of what he told you before – and by the end needed to tie it all together. Essentially, he was writing a narrative arc by building his chapters/modules in that way. This is the reverse of Goin’s description of 4-hour Workweek, where you state the hypothesis first and then prove it with examples. The difference between these looks to be more like Inductive vs. Deductive reasoning to accomplish your point, and the effect on the reader. Both rely on the smaller stories to support and build the support for the Big Idea.
