Indeed, GOOGLE, TWITTER, AND FACEBOOK caused quite a stir recently by making dramatic changes to their user interfaces. BUT for every example of design gone wrong, there is a success story of a company blasting ahead of its competitors by reinventing its product design. Hosted by Brian Lawley, CEO and Founder of 280 Group and Mary Piontkowski, Director, User Experience, Macadamian, this webinar gives key lessons on how to approach a major design update.Jeff Lash @JeffLash discussed How To Develop A Compelling Value Proposition on May 7,2012 on the Global Product Management Talk using the hashtag #ProdMgmtTalkINTRODeveloping a compelling value proposition is one of the most important aspects of productdevelopment. A value proposition is a short summary of the value which a product will deliver tocustomers. Without it, product managers and product teams struggle to define what theyrebuilding, for whom, why that matters, and how that can be translated into product success. Thistalk will focus on how to develop a strong value proposition for new and existing products alike.Each week, The Global Product Management Talk features an expert guest speaker who asks questions ofthe participants on Twitter in a Socratic discussion. The speaker and co-hosts broadcast their commentsover BlogTalkRadio. The transcript of Tweets and podcast are available after the live event.
