In this episode of Couch Convos: Biz and Tech Talks, our automation experts discuss what went wrong with Taylor Swift’s latest concert ticket sales. In November 2022, tickets for Taylor Swift’s latest concert tour went on sale on Ticketmaster. Huge demand swamped the website during the “pre-sales” period, crashing it and resulting in considerable o…
 
How much time do you spend really thinking about customer needs? I don’t mean how they want you to improve your product service. I mean really thinking about their needs? What they want, what they wish, what would make their business a lot better? Most of us don’t do this nearly enough. We’re so busy trying to solve our own problems, trying to reso…
 
Employers are wondering if they should force employees back into the office. Some demanding 100% in office, to some offering 100% remote work. What’s the right answer? This podcast answers that question by using the 4 Trends we discussed in “Thrive to the Future.” Mobility, Gig work, Asynchronous work and Artificial Intelligence. Those 4 major tren…
 
Recent headlines were awash in news that China’s population is shrinking. You might have asked “why should I care?” This podcast explains why trends, like demographic changes, have an impact on EVERYONE. It’s not just big business affected by demographic shifts, it’s all business. Years of using Chinese laborers at low wages to make products for US…
 
ChatGPT has received a lot of news lately – and for good reason. Ask this software robot a question and it can deliver eloquent answers often at the level of graduate school grammar. Artificial Intelligence (or Augmented Intelligence if you prefer) is going mainstream. College students are using it to do their homework, and people are faking expert…
 
Every business leader knows they need to sell more stuff. And they need to make money. So leaders invest in sales, marketing, operations and supply chain management. But actually, after selling more stuff the most important thing every business leader must know how to do is raise money. Look at Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk. All …
 
2022 was a tumultuous year! Interest rates went from zero to 4.5%, while finding employees continued to remain nearly impossible, and supply chain interruptions dominated the output landscape. Climbing out of the pandemic was as fraught with difficulties as shutting down had been. This podcast reviews many of the changes that happened in 2022 – inc…
 
In 2022 Federal Funds rate went from 0% to 4.25% in just 7 months. An unprecedented jump in rates – but it started from an equally unprecedented base of 0%. Looking back 100 years there was only one time when interest rates were below 1% - and that was during 2010-2022. Can you recognize that the 2010’s and pandemic were the aberration, not the nor…
 
The world is abuzz about the World Cup. But esports is actually much, much bigger than soccer – or the NFL, NBA or MLB! Do you realize that gaming is a $200B business? And while all major team sports are flat to declining, Gaming is growing at 25-50% PER YEAR! This podcast overviews how to interpret the data so you can understand just how big a tre…
 
Business leaders think very unidirectionally about their business. Meaning they think about how to push more of what they have onto customers. But customers tend to be unwilling to buy what they don’t want. Eventually leaders scratch their heads asking “why can’t I sell more stuff” without realizing the obvious problem is you aren’t selling the rig…
 
We love how Netflix pivoted from delivering DVDs to streaming content, then pivoted from streaming other people’s content to making its own. We love comparing how Netflix destroyed Blockbuster which refused to pivot from retail stores to other distribution channels. But we forget that the Netflix’ CEO Reed Hastings was pilloried for making those pi…
 
FTX recently failed, wiping out $32B of value in one week. Less than 3 years old, FTX’ 20-something CEO raised over $1.5B and charmed the media that crypto was the biggest thing since the internet. And the fad had been working. Listen in this podcast how all it took was one seller (most likely Binance) to cause a run on FTX’ reserves and expose the…

Who Challenges Your Thinking? Do You Need “Affirmative Action”? Last podcast we discussed how assumptions lead to biases which can lead to bad decision making. We often don’t know what we don’t know, so we plunder forward hoping what used to work will continue to work. But the world changes, and often we fail to change because nobody pressures us t…
 
In this episode of Couch Convos: Biz and Tech Talks, we talk about organizational change management and how it works within your business, no matter where you are in your change journey.

Is the Situation at Facebook As Bad As It Seems? In 2023 Meta (Facebook’s owner) stock has dropped from $350 to $90. That’s a market value loss of 75% in just a few months. INCREDIBLE!

We all have assumptions. We wouldn’t get anything done if we didn’t have assumptions. Built on facts, assumptions help us to focus on new problems rather than constantly resolving old problems. Only….. the world changes. The situational facts change. And assumptions become out of date. When that happens we make bad decisions, because when we get th…
 
If you have a formal business education – like a BBA or MBA – you were taught how to do more, better, faster and cheaper. You were taught to assume the customer will not change – in fact almost nothing will change. Your job is to defend the business as it exists, and hopefully extend it just a bit. Only, that is a path to ruin. Because the world is…
 
You’ve probably heard the popular phrase, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” It means to take a negative situation and turn it into a positive one.

All strategic planning should be forward based, and thus built on trends. Scenario planning requires understanding trends, including their direction, speed of adoption and impacts. Yet, many planners struggle to know the difference between a trend and a fad. And many more don’t know how to measure trends – or track them. This podcast describes very…
 
We all like to do what’s easy. Studying trends, and evaluating their impact, is not easy – especially when looking at threats as well as possibilities.

This podcast explains when you don’t study trends and plan for them you end up like millions of Flori…

From 2012 through 2019 most small and mid-size organizations started to see the need for more strategic planning, especially related to growth.

Even though entertainment trends shifted to at-home (Netflix, et.al.) a decade ago, when the pandemic hit Cineworld (parent of Regal Cinemas) borrowed money to keep their theaters.

In this episode of Couch Convos: Biz and Tech Talks, we sit down with Modern Software Delivery expert Pete Walen to talk about using test automation to support software development.

Running a business is a lot of hard work. Every day things can go wrong, customers complain and competitors take pot shots at you.

This podcast tells us how to move beyond hearing about headlines, t…

Smaller companies tend to focus on daily operations, and see activities in Washington DC as remote and unhelpful.

And the Board has no idea how to lead th…
 
Growth is good. Revenue growth hides a multitude of errors. It is true that businesses are either growing, or dying. Yet, it is a mistake to grow without a sustainable business model.
