Saying No to Good Ideas

We can’t do everything, even if our executives believe we can. So how do we decide what to focus on? And how do we say NO to a huge stack of good ideas in order to focus on a few great ideas? Then stick with those and finish something?

I will talk about frameworks for deciding among (too many) good ideas and explaining WHY we chose those. How can we be more collaborative?

ProductTank -- Washington DC

I’m speaking on the topic “Product Culture Will Eat Execution Culture.” In 2019, the highest functioning software companies aren't going to simply sell what's they've already built. They're going to constantly being asking, "what new value can we provide?"

This new movement is ‘Product Culture’ and I argue that it's going to eat the more corporate ‘Execution Culture’ of yesteryear. More on the event. Will I see you there?
