Barriers, a technique to seed Product Innovation

Roman uses the word barriers on his Product Vision Board. The Intuition came to me to use this word barriers slighly differently, as follows:

  • A User aims at an objective , and barriers are what prevent to reach it (easily, with flow).
  • A product become then something that lower this barrier, a helper.
  • The value of the product become then the reduced cost of the effort 1 ProductAsReplacementValue

This bring potential to investigate products, and figure value as such: read more

These days ( 2014) , My main professional interest is about the collective intelligence and cooperative behavior of human, especially in the « professional » field. I believe most of the impact can be done where people spend 8h a day. If you can impact this , you will impact them when they go back in their families, and from there, the « society ». read more

Persona shows their concerns

Lets create a few fictitious Persona, and run a few Root Cause Analysis on their concerns. From these concerns we will derive needs ( and barriers) . Then we aggregate the result from different Personas, and this give us a start to the Haskell Ecosystem, these personas are the actors from the Ecosystem. either as Key Partners, Key Resources or Market Segment( and from this understanding we would derive opportunities, products, and « go to market « strategy). read more

What moves me

When preparing the root Cause Analysis at the 1st Person, I realize I was listing feelings in fact, or values, so I did the motivator exercise from Jurgen Appello, i.e. :

  1. classifying your motivation in your personal order, then
  2. perceiving the delta for a given situation ( target would be here is a Haskell job) ( the + /- here below )

interesting findings:

  • mainly gains, no loss
  • if I would map these values to my currents jobs, I am FAR offset… 1 to 3 are barely touched…

    [Kanban] Trello is back, BmFiddle is out, and could Haskell do the same (today) ?

    when experimenting with BmFiddle 1, I got pissed with D&D being not reliable (enough), at least for the kanban. I am giving Trello 4 another try…

    Serendipity:

    Async : Concurrency and STM : Simon Marlow at Skills Matter

    Haskell eXchange 2012: Simon Marlow on High performance concurrency .

    I watched the async package, (namely similar  to erlang’s tree of control process) . include exceptions management. great. plus combinators. ; interesting remarks from Simon at the beginning about the not so large number of application available in haskell. read more

    Back To Life

    Resurrecting my blog, that was down after a hack in 2009. Never cared putting it back, as I was not sharing publicly. Now I am back with this Haskell roadmap motivation. Funnily enough, I picked my kanban to test the rotating images ( QuickSlider) on the Land Page, and I realize that may be a good idea to share the way forward, in fact …..may have to manage version, thought;-) read more
