Secrets of High-Performance Teams in a Remote-Work Environment
Many forces and pressures have been building and creating a desire for remote work, which is the topic of today’s episode. When you have a culture of mutual respect, trust, a clear and simple strategy, and outcome-based work, it doesn’t matter if your workforce is co-located or distributed around the globe. A culture that celebrates the remote workforce opens itself to a greater pool of top talent which could greatly improve the profitability of the company. When I was thinking about who to interview for this podcast, I couldn’t think of a better person than Bernie Spang, who I worked for on a remote team for a little over 2 years at the turn of the century. Bernie ran the WebSphere Studio Tools Marketing team that was part of the WebSphere Middleware Marketing team that was a part of the IBM Software Group. He currently is Program Director, Watson AI-powered virtual assistants, IBM.

Marketing Forces with Kurt Uhlir
One of the biggest mistakes that companies make with their products and services is not testing various target markets BEFORE they build new products or features. Marketing serves as eyes and ears in the market to determine where the magnetic attractions are and begin to create marketing gravity around those features that resonate with the market.

The 80/20 Business Operating System with Bob Muscat
I interview Bob Muscat, a Marketing and Business Transformation expert, who has developed a unique approach to a concept known as 80/20, where 20% of your customers deliver 80% of your value. (And 4% of your customers cost you over 50% of your overhead!)  CEOs and Product executives would be well served by understanding this business practice sourced from the Pareto principle.
