Christopher's greatest hits:
  • Breakthrough Ideas for 2007 (Harvard Business Review)

    "great ideas"

    Overall

    Most all of the ideas in this HBR article are great. They are extremely stimulating and I have already urged many others to listen or read this article. As a new product designer, breakthrough ideas in any area are important. This article speaks of new ideas within marketing and pshychology which have huge impact on product design. Understanding where our customer's desires are when the customer doesn't even know is the hardest part of our jobs. Some of the ideas in this article help in detailing out tools and concepts that will make products more profitable and better.

  • Preparing the Perfect Product Launch (Harvard Business Review)

    "not the best, but worth a listen"

    Overall

    Compared to the many full length books on product launches and process, this article is lacking much. It is certainly worth the 1/3 credit though. It is more valuable to make others listen to the issues the author faced during his product release. All too many products are released lacking what the author causes an adequate 'think phase'. Not enough people realize that implementation of ideas is easy when the ideas are well thought out.

    I enjoy HBR articles - there's always some insight you can get through a read, or in this case, a listen. Some good thoughts and insights.

    Businesses hoping to survive over the long term will have to remake themselves into better competitors at least once along the way. These efforts have gone under many banners: total quality management, reengineering, rightsizing, restructuring, cultural change, and turnarounds, to name a few. In almost every case, the goal has been to cope with a new, more challenging market by changing the way business is conducted. In this article, John Kotter outlines the eight largest errors that can doom these efforts.
