Feb. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- San Francisco - Two factors are driving an interest in expanding the process of innovation beyond R&D, product and strategy inside companies. First, we're seeing a general move, inside organizations and out in the streets, toward broader participation in decisions. Second, studies are confirming the value of diverse inputs in the innovation process. This talk discusses ways to address these emerging opportunities.

Hutch Carpenter, Vice President of Product for Spigit, will speak at the weekly Global Product Management Talk on Twitter Monday, March 5, 2012 at the simultaneous times of 3:00 PM Pacific Time, 6:00 PM Eastern Time, which will be Tuesday, March 6 at 10:00 AM Sydney, Australian Time using the hashtag #ProdMgmtTalk  

Hutch says, "Product management is the most interesting and dynamic work you'll find in companies, drawing on multiple disciplines and affected by many emerging market trends. Using Twitter to bring people together to cover the issues and trends is a great way to open up the discussion. I look forward to engaging with the Global Product Management Talk community."

Each week, The Global Product Management Talk features an expert guest discussing pre-posted questions with the co-hosts and Twitter participants broadcast live over BlogTalkRadio. The transcript of Tweets and podcast are available for on-demand consumption on the web, iTunes and Android mobile app.

Second Year of Global Product Management Talks!

The Global Product Management Talk recently celebrated its first year of programming  with an audience greater than 5,000 listeners to the weekly podcasts and more than  3500 Twitter followers interested in discussing issues related to managing and marketing products with subject matter experts and co-hosts situated in the San Francisco Bay Area, Australia, UK, Canada, India and the Americas.

The Global Product Management Talk raises the bar for what is possible to accomplish in a real time, open platform event by encouraging participants to expand their knowledge base with each event, utilize new products in real time as we introduce and beta test various products for participating, enable participants to showcase their knowledge and share resources, and crowdsource educational content for product people to stay apprised of new developments, thinkers, and events in the practice of managing products from inception to market and innovation.

Weekly, Cindy F. Solomon produces the event, curating guest speakers, and inviting participation via social media. The speaker and co-hosts broadcast live over BlogTalkRadio, while active participation is taking place digitally within the Twitter stream using a social media chat tool to filter out the hashtag #ProdMgmtTalk. Following the event, both the recording of the audio discussion and the written transcript of tweets are available for viewing & listening on social media, iTunes and mobile device platforms. Participants are encouraged to expand upon their statements and insights by blogging to continue the conversation.  All of the content from the event is bundled  to further extend the value and reach of the subject matter.
