Business Lessons from the Aviation World
In the aviation world, safety is given a lot of attention—and rightfully so. Redundancy and checklists are everywhere and there is very strict regulation where everything is codified.

The business world could certainly learn a thing or two from the aviation industry. http://ccworld.ca/5 My name is Gérard Métrailler, and CC:World is my podcast where I'll share perspectives, thoughts, opinions, and discussions related to strategy, products, marketing, and more.

Getting the pricing right is harder than it seems
Setting pricing seems easy. You understand the value you provide to your users and how much they are willing to pay. Armed with that information, you set the price. But if you sell in more than one country or through partners, you very quickly add a whole new level of complexity that makes the whole exercise, well, fun.

Santa, Inc. – The amazing business model of a reindeer pilot
When the success of your organization depends on global delivery within a window of just 24 hours, it’s imperative for your logistics and delivery systems to be flawless. Add to that a strict focus on delighting the customers using processes that rely heavily on outsourcing and you can see just what a challenge it would be. Wait a minute! There’s also that whole “deliver significant shareholder value and growth, year after year” thing. Daunting? Yes. But not for Santa, Inc. How does the company do it? That’s what I look at in this podcast episode, using one of the great tools available to understand products, businesses, and other opportunities: the Business Model Canvas. A while back, I played around an applied the BMC to a holiday-season centric subject. Find the shownotes as well as the actual Santa Inc. BMC at http://ccworld.ca/3.

What is "Customer Delight"?
“Customer delight” is about putting a smile on someone’s face after they’ve used your product. It’s about putting the elements in place that will create an emotional link between the user and the product. It requires not only a clear understanding of why but also relentless attention to detail at every touch point—a “crafted with care” mentality.
