I have been to the Grand Canyon many times. One of the unfortunate things is the haze that hangs in the canyon, especially during the summer months. Personally, I think the best time of day to photograph the Grand Canyon is at sunrise during the cooler months. There wasn't any snow in early April, but it was plenty cold.

Seven or more Strategies for Prioritizing features - All of them sensible ways to proceed your product planning. Not a better article I know showing the dilemma of product managers face.

Prioritization is a hot topic for product teams, especially for those doing their 2015 product planning. Even the most seasoned product manager struggles with determining which features and initiatives to put on the roadmap. With so many opportunities competing for scarce resources, … Continue reading →

There are a lot of myths about prototyping -- it's too costly, it's too time-consuming, special skills are needed... I dispel these and others in my latest blog post.

Providing B2B organizations with product leadership for over 20 years
Introduction

Putting all the typical bio's you've read aside, I was born with marketing DNA and have developed the skills of discovering market problems, then sythesizing and communicating these into strategic value and products that people want to buy.

Most people would say, WOW, that's pretty sweet! Others would say; it's product management.

Either way, I use my talents and experience to influence companies and teams to engage in making right decisions before wasting time, energy and resources on products and services no one wants.  

I've enabled great teams, created some amazing go-to-market strategies and ensured that gut instinct and epiphanies were eliminated for over two decades.

I have used AutoNation Acura for service of my TSX and recently bought a 2014 RDX. The dealership and service areas are spotless, the transaction was painless and the team very approachable and great to work with. I would highly recommend AutoNation Acura.

This is a great place to rent bikes for the beach and the trails. The team is great and they know how to serve their customers. I rented two bikes for the trails and they provided helmets, bags for gear etc. I needed a smaller bike and one of the owners, said, "Use mine. It's on the back of my car rake, but we'll set it up for your wife." How awesome is that. Beyond rentals, they are a full-service shop that sells and repairs as well. When I'm back in an the Sandestin area, I'll rent again

The service was prompt and the wait staff offered a few suggestions on the menu change. Overall, the experience was good. Of course, the cheesecake is awesome.

When I'm in Chapel Hill, I try to stop at SBK for a fresh biscuit. They are light and fluffy and not greasy. I'm from Chapel Hill and have a southern Mom for a cook, so I know what's a great biscuit. Stop by this hidden gem and you won't regret it.
