Today, we look at how and why some ideas take off and others don't – in other words, how and why things scale. I am delighted to bring to you my conversation with John List. John has been described as a ‘master economist' and a ‘revolutionary experimenter'. He is certainly a pioneer in combining economic theory with field experiments. John is currently the Chief Economist at Walmart and has held the same role at Lyft and Uber. He is also the Kenneth C. Griffin Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago's Department of Economics and has been an economic advisor to the Bush White House. For the purposes of this episode, John discusses his latest and fabulous book The Voltage Effect – How to Make Good Ideas Great and Great Ideas Scale. In it, John argues that scalability is critical to just about everything from medical breakthroughs to social movements. John shares a number of insights from the book, including the conditions necessary for something to scale and the secrets to high voltage scaling. We also spend some time on a topic I consider fascinating – when and how to quit something that is not serving us. This is one of the secrets to high voltage scaling. It's a fascinating conversation!

In this episode, we will look at how you could beat Uber. Uber currently has a market cap of about $60 billion. Its peak share was around $60 or so. They famously disrupted the taxi industry. But if you open the app, you can see what else they're getting into such as food delivery, rental cars, mass transit, and package delivery. Their main direct competitor is Lyft. So what has Lyft done to take share and differentiate? They targeted different needs at one point, for example, safety and emotional needs around connecting with drivers. Essentially trying to make a trip a social experience. So did that work? Well, their market cap today is about $12 billion or so. But they're still only worth about 20% of Uber. So how would you compete with Uber?

Andy and Dave discuss the latest in AI news and search, including a report from the Government Accountability Office, recommending that the Department of Defense should improve its AI strategies and other AI-related guidance [1:25]. Another GAO report finds that the Navy should improve its approach to uncrewed maritime systems, particularly in its lack of accounting for the full costs to develop and operate such systems, but also recommends the Navy establish an “entity” with oversight for the portfolio [4:01]. The Army is set to launch a swarm of 30 small drones during the 2022 Experimental Demonstration Gateway Exercise (EDGE 22), which will be the largest group of air-launched effects the Army has tested [5:55].

According to an article by theverge.com, around 21 percent of Lyft drivers and 27 percent of Uber drivers in the US are women. With the increase in rideshare options comes an increase in risk for female passengers and female drivers. In this episode of the True Crime Society Podcast we discuss the cases of four different women who have either been murdered or are missing. The one commonality for these cases is that the women would likely be here today if it wasn't for accepting or offering a rideshare lift. Christina Spicuzza accepted an Uber fare in February 2022. Horrifyingly, the rider was never looking for a lift – he was out to rob and kill her. There is terrifying dashcam footage of Christi in the moments before her murder. Her body was found days after she vanished – she was still wearing her protective face mask when she was discovered. Ella Goodie accepted a Lyft job in March 2022. The ride was to take her from Louisiana to Texas, a 7 hour round trip. Ella never made it home to her teenage daughters. She is still missing and her case has been classified as a homicide. Felicia Johnson travelled from her home in California to Houston, Texas in April 2022. Some reports say that she went to a club to look for work. After that, she was reportedly waiting for an Uber outside and it was delayed. She accepted a lift with an unidentified man and has not been seen since. Her phone was found abandoned and covered in blood. Samantha Josephson decided to finish up her night out with friends in March 2019, and she called an Uber. A car pulled up and she got in. She mistook this vehicle for her Uber and this mistake ended her life. Samantha was stabbed over 120 times by her driver. The judge in this case called Samantha's murder the ‘most severe' that he had seen before.

Since its creation, Lyft has been disruptive. It initially set out to eliminate the friction of getting a taxi. But over time, Lyft has grown into a transportation powerhouse. One reason for its success is its total focus on customers. When faced with the changes and challenges of the pandemic, Lyft took the opportunity to improve its digital services and undergo a digital transformation. The result is a frictionless experience that continues to disrupt the industry and shine as an example for all customer-focused digital brands. Customer-Centric Mindset VP of Customer Experience Eric Burdullis says being a customer-centric organization means paying attention to the things that cause problems for your customers. Contact center agents have valuable insights to solve and prevent issues. At Lyft, the technology team regularly shadows customer service to see things from the customers' perspective. Many employees even drive for Lyft to understand what works with the product and what doesn't. Burdullis says that brands that aren't paying attention to their customers' problems are missing a big chunk of business. Pandemic Shift Like many businesses, Lyft lost almost all its business overnight when the pandemic hit. And as people eventually started leaving home more, customers began contacting Lyft at higher rates about things that had never been issues before, including flexibility and health and safety inside cars. With a new customer mindset and a new world for operating, Burdullis led his cross-functional team to re-think all customer entry points from the ground up through a comprehensive digital transformation. The original goal was to eliminate 90% of contacts while improving NPS. The team talked to frontline agents and managers about the tasks they did every day that they didn't feel were adding value to customers—things like refunding cancellation fees or providing the repetitive quick responses. That list grew to include every problem a customer may face. From those thousands of ideas, the team prioritized the customer issues and questions into two groups: those that could move to the app and those that could be proactively delivered. Lyft's previous contact form came from the website, but the digital transformation moved almost everything to the app to create easy access points. Instead of waiting for customers to contact the company, Lyft shifted to proactively reaching out to customers who may have a specific issue or providing self-service options to answer questions and resolve problems quickly. The transition required strong data analysis efforts to track the entire customer journey. Lasting Transformation Coming out of the pandemic, Burdullis says Lyft offers better service and in-app connected service to chat and human agents. Instead of all customers having to use the old web help form to connect to a human agent, Lyft is thoughtful about every piece of the journey and intentionally designs with customers in mind. Although Lyft didn't get to its goal of eliminating 90% of contacts, Burdullis considers 65% an incredible win. The digital transformation also improved Lyft's customer effort score by double, making it twice as easy for customers to get resolution. Lyft's digital transformation is continually evolving, just as customers continue to change and adapt. With a goal to make the experience as easy as possible for customers and a mindset that puts customers at the center of every decision, Lyft sets the foundation for long-term customer success. ________ Blake Morgan is a customer experience futurist, keynote speaker, and author of the bestselling book The Customer Of The Future.

Ok so this week I am introducing you all to my newest show, one I know you've heard me talking quite a bit about, Upworthy Weekly. This is a pretty high stakes introduction, sort of like introducing your new beau to your old best friend. When I introduced Daniel (new beau, now husband) to Trevor (old best friend) way back when, it went swimmingly. In fact, Trevor officiated at our wedding. But what it it had been disastrous? I guess what I'm saying is if you all play your cards right, you could officiate at my wedding to Upworthy Weekly? Wait, that makes no sense. Also, it's common knowledge at magazines and newspapers that you aren't supposed to use the same word repeatedly which is why you'll hear film, flick, feature, movie, etc in one story. However this isn't a magazine, it's an episode summary, so I will use the word introduce so many times it loses meaning and you will thank me! Anyway, about this episode! This week's show touches on everything from religion to psychology to criminology. Alison and Tod open with an appeal to have a legendary rapper co-host the show. They move on to discuss a clever Lyft driver's ride menu, a guy who was raised to be the perfect husband, and questions we'd ask God. Plus, Tod's caffeine addiction is leading him astray and Alison shares marriage advice.
