Global Product Management Talk On Indigenous Principles For Corporate Change

Most commonly in the the startup environment, we expend enormous energy birthing a vision to life. There is so much on a tactical level required to bring our ideas to fruition that culture tends to be viewed as something that we'll get to later on down the road. Yet, the single most powerful way to birth a vision with impact is to focus on culture from the very beginning.

Glenn says, "Anytime we hold conversations about how we can birth new ideas into life, the more we can engender a focus on culture the more new ideas will come forward with verve and impact."

Glenn Geffcken is the featured guest calling in to talk with host Cindy F. Solomon who is broadcasting live from Studio132 for the Global Product Management Talk on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at the simultaneous times of 10:00 AM Pacific Time, 11:00 AM MST Denver, 12:00 Noon CST Chicago, and 1:00 PM EST Boston.
