PRLog - Feb. 27, 2013 - San Francisco, CA - 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/
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 http://www.aipmm.com/
