#ProdMgmtTalk March 4, 13 Disrupting Enterprise Software And Corporate IT w/ @cowanSF

Alex Cowan, CTO, Leonid Systems And Author, 'Starting a Tech Business' Discusses How To Disrupt Enterprise Software And Corporate IT In Six Steps

While 17-year-old's were creating hit mobile app's and Facebook was inventing the great new American pastime, corporate IT and enterprise software remained relatively incremental, plodding through release cycles in roughly the same fashion as they had decades prior. No more. The same trends and tools that have dramatically raised the quality bar in consumer applications are doing the same thing to corporate IT and enterprise software. If you haven't heard about 'design thinking' or 'Lean Startup' you probably will soon. The big paradox about these two incredibly powerful ideas is that they're almost universally liked, yet rarely practiced in full. The hardest part is getting started- the rest is easy.

Alex Cowan, CTO of Leonid Systems and author of 'Starting a Tech Business' will talk with host, Cindy F. Solomon, about essentials of how to build an effective foundation for regular application of these ideas within enterprise software and corporate IT environments on Monday, March 4, 2013 at the simultaneous times of 10:00 AM Pacific Time, 11:00 AM MST Denver, 12 Noon CST Chicago, and 1:00 PM EST Boston.

Participants are welcome to listen live at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/prodmgmttalk, call in to talk on the show (323) 927-2957 and to participate on Twitter by following @ProdMgmtTalk and tweeting using the hashtag #ProdMgmtTalk.

Alex says, "I look forward to discussing what's currently happening in corporate IT and enterprise software on the Global Product Management Talk. I think what you're going to see over the next couple of years is a huge uptick in quality that will substantially affect internal users well as external customers- not to mention the health of the companies providing these solutions."

Alex will be presenting on the AIPMM webinar series on Friday, March 8, 2013

Startup Product, a movement for product excellence through cross-discipline collaboration and holistic product perspective.

Startup Product welcomes everyone passionate about product excellence, regardless of title, industry, or stage of growth, to come together to share, learn and talk about what it really takes to produce products that people love and how to build sustainable businesses and revenue streams based on product excellence.

Everyone is encouraged to contribute their point of view, workshop their product dilemma, share their lessons learned in the process of shepherding products from idea to inception to build to launch and beyond. We need a place where all perspectives and orientations of what the product requires are welcome. Everyone who sheds light on specific areas that are essential to product excellence are welcome to present and contribute to the conversation.

There is a lifecycle that every product, startup, idea and project passes through to be realized. Focusing on where the product is in its lifecycle enables a conversation that brings us all together on what will serve the product most to arrive at product/market fit, sustain growth and generate revenue streams.

We welcome people from all disciplines and stages of product evolution:

Designers
UX professionals
Founders, funders, CEOs
Software developers
Product Marketers, Agile Marketers, Growth Hackers
Product managers
Community managers
Customer Support & Service
Content strategists
Business Analysts
Project managers
And anyone who loves to talk and think about products!
Come share what you've learned and learn from others about the art AND discipline of all the facets involved in the process of breathing life into a product, managing actionable goals and producing scalable businesses...

Bring Startup Product Talks and Summit to your community!
