Slideshow Graphic Template.pptxTech4PD Debate on Social Tech in Product Development and Beam me Up Chad!

Share

The latest edition of Tech4PD shares Tech-Clarity’s view that social techniques are ready for prime time in product development. Chad Jackson of Lifecycle Insights contends that it will take time, in particular because social capabilities are more likely to be adopted in formal business processes. I fundamentally disagree and believe that the low-hanging fruit is in ad-hoc processes where product developers and engineers need to share information. The beauty is, you get to decide who won the debate. Watch Tech4PD and then vote here. You can also read some lively discussion between Chad and yours truly.

And speaking of winning debates, the loser of this round has to get a temporary Tech4PD tattoo. But Chad last our previous debate on who has to enable simulation drive design. So in this episode, you see the consequence of that debate – Chad presenting at a conference in a Star Trek uniform. Priceless. That makes brushing my teeth with wasabi after losing the first debate all worthwhile.
