As an owner of rental properties in a college town, I witnessed a significant economic trend before the general population saw it. About ten years ago, students stopped installing landline phone service in their apartments. Soon after these students graduated, phone companies saw a rapid decline in the overall number of landline phone customers. Many people still have dsl lines for Internet use, but the all-cell-family now comprises about 25% of households, and that number is expected to double in the next three years . Similarly, it was easy to see that Blockbuster was in trouble once everyone you ran into was raving ...

The next funky collaboration tool (or Cisco's next acquistion)
Back then the shiny new idea was that we could share knowledge as never before thanks to the web, and a whole enterprise industry sprung up around ‘elearning’ with ‘learning management systems’ being touted as the cost effective educational source for businesses to enlighten and track employee’s intellectual sophistication. I found this especially fun as back then I worked in e-learning, most specifically in Cisco EMEA’s E-learning team. Come to the dot.com pop and that e-learning team was reformed. Myself and some colleagues were reformed too, as characters and in roles and we formed a new team we dubbed Communicating@Cisco. market research, surveys and trends

During a recent backpacking trip in Indian hinterland, one of the evenings as I watched TV placed in corner of tea shop in a small town, news of an acrimonious war of words between a famous Indian movie star and a political party was playing on. News channel was reporting what the star had to say on controversy, not through interview given to news agency or channel but through tweets on his twitter account. As the saga was unfolding on twitter the new channel was merely picking it up and broadcasting. Someone seated nearby exclaimed "Ye twitter kya cheej hai (what thing is this twitter)" .

Tuesday Morning Quarterback begins his annual NFL preview by breaking down the AFC
The National Football League is all about running the ball, right? That's what you hear. Yet for two consecutive seasons, the last-ranked rushing team made the Super Bowl -- Arizona in 2008 and Indianapolis in 2009 reached the ultimate game despite having the league's worst rushing offense those seasons. True, both lost, but 30 of the 32 NFL franchises gladly would have traded places with the team that lost the Super Bowl. And last season, the AFC's two best teams, winning the first-round byes -- San Diego and Indianapolis -- were 31st and 32nd overall, respectively, in rushing. Thus you don't have to run the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How to be a good product manager ? | LinkedIn Answers | LinkedIn
I guess that you already noticed that the product manager job is a focal point in the organization and many interests are channeled to your doorstep. From my experience, various groups in your organization will try to influence you in various ways so your life isn’t going to be easy. My suggestion is to start with determining, like in every job, what value you can add to the process. Since the role of the PM is horizontal, many companies are solving the issue by assigning PMs in every unit of the organization. In many companies, there are 3 or 4 product managers - R&D product manager, Product Marketing Manager and Product ...
