  1. Thanks, Mark! This is a fantastic interview that I, too, recommend everyone watch. In the service sector, we often think that developing a new service or “tweaking” an existing one is worlds apart from the development of physical product and software. But development’s development.

    Eric’s lessons are valuable for anyone and everyone. I especially liked his phrases “success theater,” “vanity metrics,” and confusing the “exhaust with the engine.” He’s not only informative, but a delight to listen to. Thank you for sharing this podcast with us.

    Great Lessons to be learned and a great primer for PDCA. Love it!!

    Eric is masterful in getting his message across. Even if you were silly enough not to take value out of his message, there is a great lesson to be learned on how he presents his product. A must listen.

    I am big fan of the Lean Startup and his idea of basically getting prototypes into the hands of real customers as soon as possible is a great lesson to be learned. The product/market fit he discusses is something that I see people struggling with all the time. Good advice!
