很多人可能会像我一样在新年结束的时候,整理上一年自己做的事情,然后展望新的一年。在英语里有一个说法叫做new year resolution,就是指新年要实现的愿望,通常是减肥、读书、赚钱、戒酒等等。但根据统计大概只有50%的新年愿望,能坚持一个月,真正在新的一年坚持到底完成目标的人少之又少。我从今年开始尝试不做新年的愿望展望,而是回顾过去的一年,根据以往的积极和消极的经验,来进行新的一年计划。现在看下来这种方式很有用! 关于: 「狗熊有话说」播客是由 大狗熊 于 2012 年创办的独立中文知识型播客节目,以阅读、科技、旅行和个人成长为主要话题内容,是 iTunes 中国区长期推荐播客,被苹果 iTunes 评选为「2013 年度精选最佳社会与文化播客」。 收听: 在苹果 Podcasts、Spotify、新浪播客、网易云音乐 、喜马拉雅FM 和 荔枝FM 等音频播客平台中可以搜索"狗熊有话说"并关注收听; 直接于【狗熊有话说】播客官网 voice.beartalking.com (http://voice.beartalking.com)在线收听; 在微信公号文章中可以直接点击音频按钮收听; 支持: 如果你认可大狗熊的节目,请向朋友们推荐这档节目,邀请朋友们关注公众号“狗熊有话说”; 大狗熊会在YouTube上更新更多关于设计、效率与学习类的内容,请在YouTube订阅频道 http://www.youtube.com/c/BearTalkVideo 如果喜欢英文内容,您也可以在这里订阅大狗熊的英文邮件email.beartalking.com/signup (https://email.beartalking.com/signup),不定期收获学习经验分享。 联系: 微 信:bearbigtalk(公众号) 网 站:beartalking.com (http://www.beartalking.com) 邮 箱:bear@beartalking.com (mailto:bear@beartalking.com) 微 博:@i大狗熊 (http://www.weibo.com/bearbig) If like this one, why don't you subscribe to Bear?

We are on the verge of a new year, and with a new year comes new ideas about how we need to make changes in our lives. While individual will often make New Year's Resolutions about how to make a “new you”, what about organization? What resolutions can organizations make to change the way they have been doing things, and enter the new year with not only the best intentions, but the best outcomes?To help us explore how to make those radical changes in our individual and organizational lives, we have in the Experience by Design Studios Radhika Dutt. Radhika is the author of Radical Product Thinking: The New Mindset for Innovating Smarter. In her book, she distills that wealth of knowledge into some clear elements that any individual or organization can use. In today's conversation we break down what radical product thinking is and can do. It's a skill for creating change in the world around you, and one of the most interesting aspects is that it can work for organizations, but also you as an individual, or even entities not traditionally considered products such as Singapore. One key element of radical product thinking we discuss is building out vision vs iterative product thinking, meaning how can we create guides and guardrails to foster growth in a desired direction, measure what matters, and create lasting change.

TODAY'S GUESTS In this episode of Remake, I sit down with Ana Ferreira and Alex Muench. Ana is Head of Design and Product Design, and Alex is a senior digital product designer at Doist, a completely remote team of over 100 people, and the maker of popular productivity apps, Todoist and Twist. Ana and Alex are the creators of Twist, a remarkable and opinionated communication tool aimed at replacing Slack with a less distracting, more focused supporting, less real-time alternative. We've been using Twist for a few months at Remake, and it has done wonders for our ability to communicate remotely across time zones, to stay up-to-date, and catch up when our work allows rather than disrupting work to be always connected. I really can't overstate how much more harmonious and effective work has become since we moved out of real-time chat tools. And a lot of this goes back to Ana and Alex's ideas and the company's opinionated take on work, communication and design.   EPISODE SUMMARY In this conversation we talk about: What it means to be a designer. What makes Doist special as a company. What's wrong with "always on" team chat tools like Slack, Microsoft Teams and Google's team chat, and the culture of availability and distraction they promote. What it takes to be an effective distributed team. This chat with Ana and Alex is just one of dozens of great weekly interviews we have lined up for you with leading designers, bestselling authors, activists, impact investors and entrepreneurs.

The way you position your company in the eyes of your customers is the most make-or-break decision you can make. Who are you selling to? What problem are you solving for them? Why should a customer buy from you? All these questions need answers, and if they aren't the right answers, it's going to be a pretty rocky road. So when you hear about a humidifier that's being positioned as a beauty product, what do you think? Good idea or bad? Well, for the guys at Canopy, it turned out to be a great idea and we got into it on this special in-person roundtable episode of Up Next in Commerce. Joining me in-studio here in Austin, Texas was Eric Neher, CMO at Canopy, Justin Seidenfeld, CEO at Doris Dev and Co-Founder of Canopy, and Lucas Lappe, Head of Product and Co-Founder at Doris Dev. We talked all things Canopy, but we also dove into Doris Dev, a product development agency that has helped scale companies like Blueland, Magic Spoon, BioLite, Supply, Lalo, and many more. During this epic chat, we touched on a little bit of everything -- from branding and logistical issues to product design and marketing, and beyond. I hope you have as much fun listening as I had hanging out with this lively trio.  Main Takeaways:An Obvious Way In: When you are thinking about using a subscription model, you should have an obvious reason to get in touch with your customer or a product that they need to replace or replenish that is the basis of your subscription. When you force goods on customers that they don't need or even necessarily want via a subscription, you spoil the relationship you have built with them. Trendspotting: One of the most recent trends, particularly in the world of beauty, is blending innovative, creative experiences with products that are created with sustainable materials. Today's customers have higher expectations than ever before and they are looking to support brands that rise to the occasion in every way.The Need For Newness: Bringing new products, experiences, and opportunities to customers is one of the best ways to keep them engaged. But in creating new things — even if it's just an updated version of something that exists — you are constantly struggling to make sure that what you build works, does what you want, does what the customer needs, and never takes away from the brand or the experience. But those are challenges you need to face in order to not pigeonhole your business by relying on one or two products forever.For an in-depth look at this episode, check out the full transcript below.

In this episode: [0:52] Jake Miller Bio and Introduction[2:45] Jake talks about his inspirations and passions as an entrepreneur, and how they lead him to found his company, Fellow.[5:45] What were the biggest challenges in founding Fellow? Jake talks about engineering and developing physical products with a pure marketing background and what he learned about manufacturing products at scale.[7:25] Jake discusses his product portfolio expansion and how digital helps his coffee products. [8:30] As a startup, how did Jake and Fellow approach “customer research” or market studies? Jake talks about using Human-Centered Design and its four key components: “Empathize, Ideate, Prototype, Iterate.”  [9:30] Jake speaks to his strategic approach to selling: distribution, wholesale partners and e-commerce. [11:25] Jake offers advice for entrepreneurs who are starting out on how to use digital platforms. “Stand it up, see what happens. Be strategic from there.”[12:55] Fellow has only one brick-and-mortar store, their “San Francisco Playground.” Jake talks about experiential retail, the evolution of customer service, and what's special about this store.[15:35] How did COVID-19 affect Fellow's business? Jake talks about the challenges and (some silver linings) of the pandemic including its impact on product design, quality assurance, price increases, and more. [19:00] Costs of labor and raw materials have gone up globally in 2021, how do Jake and Fellow handle those increases? [20:00] Jake talks about supply chain disruption and Fellow products, and how the company pivoted to better reach customers during COVID.[22:00] Jakes discusses how much he leverages digital marketing to grow sales and connect deeply to their customers.[24:00] What types of “traditional” marketing is Fellow doing?

Sometimes that's OK! Jake took several big risks when he started Fellow, which ended up teaching him a lot of important lessons about product design and development, even if he sometimes wishes he'd have chosen to partner with an engineer who knew coffee products from the outset. When starting Fellow, Jake didn't invest in big market research. Because coffee product design is a niche market, Jake opted to find out how real coffee lovers wanted to brew coffee. Jake is committed to Human-Centered Design for Fellow Products. The four principles of Human-Centered Design: Empathize, Ideate, Prototype, Iterate.Supply Chain issues — Fellow paused to do formal research to make decisions on price increases, hoping the market will turn around. Research takes time. Digital marketing is more than just driving transactions; it's about driving relationships. Digital has enabled companies to get closer than ever before with their customers and add value to their lives. Entrepreneurs and marketers sometimes forget that real people are clicking and going through the shopping process. Keep this in mind when building e-commerce websites. ROI can be more of a future motivation. What is keeping your customers moving through the funnel right now? Consider elevating the conversation with your customer first.When you hit a rough patch, come back to and stay true to the mission. Fellow's mission (Help People Brew Ridiculously Good Coffee) helped them make difficult decisions during COVID-19 and the company's early growing pains. The mission should be alive and embodied by the human beings who are running the business. Passion is important to success.Jake's advice for starting a business, “Stand it up. See What Happens. Then Be Strategic.” For a business with high-quality products, that meant to try it and look to wholesale or distribution channels that can support your products. Balance the desire to sell directly while understanding some business will come through partnerships.  Fellow leverages influencers in an innovative way that adds value to their brand without adding costs. Enable people who are experts to promote and talk about your brand/product. Fellow using organic relationships with expert baristas to tell their story in an authentic way. When a brand's story is authentic (not paid for), customers recognize this and gravitate toward your product. Sometimes we need people to take chances on us as entrepreneurs or professionals. So many careers come full circle, as they did with Kathy and Jake. Kathy has taken a chance on hiring new talent like Jake and Gino! Pay it forward when you can to mentor and offer advice to others. If you're in a leadership or management role, keep in mind that raw talent can be molded. Take care of your people. There's a war for talent out there, so make human connections a priority.
