user-drivenInvolving customers – a new concept?

http://www.userdriven.org/ is a blog that is about product management involving the end-user. At a first glance I thought that the concept of user-driven product development is nothing new. But we have to take a closer look to see how innovative it is.

I knew that I want to work in the marketing sector since I was in high school. But my interest for product management came up during my internship in 2007.


The blog http://allaboutproductmanagement.blogspot.com/ gives advice on various aspects of Product Management and Product Development including also career tips. Even if the author addresses mainly Hardware, Software, Online, IT and Technical Product Managers, I think that the posts are also relevant for product managers (PM) in general. And I will tell you why. (more…)

bild1 Several weeks ago my best friend told me that he loves reading blogs. Actually, he’s looking for interesting people or people who write about their lives and experiences in an interesting way. As I find it hard to find “good” blogs, I thought  it would be nice if he helps me out by giving me the links of his favorite blogs. He did and actually I like the blogs. Unfortunately they are mainly in German.

I realized that this was not what I searched for. Then I found http://atimetodance.wordpress.com/. It seems to me that Maria, the author, relates their interest in dancing to other topics. And that’s what I like 🙂 The links are just great (my favorite deals about “Scrubs”) and I can’t wait to read more. (more…)
