"offlined"? WTF? Does that mean they can come online when someone pushes the right buttons? FIRED. Not "offlined". But they never do get fired or laid off, since they are the ones who pick the winners in a layoff (winners because they no longer will be working for idiots)...they do get offlined, don't they, then go online to screw up a completely unrelated position they get onlined into?

These two managers should be offlined. Two years in the goulog and still not listening 18 month fix program ignored the real problem or out it off th "phase2" If it aint cooked into phase 1 then the whole code gets jacked to add it. Fear of bad vibes wit ones bosses, passing on tough messages fources one to ignore the customer imperiling the companies future, with the upside of a few more years of employment for the managers.

Agreed. Tasteless title and shameless commercial. The case study is somewhat interesting but the only thing new in the approach seems to be the name (TM!).

Agree. Sensationalism. And the whole "article" feels like a shameless commercial. Yes, listening to customers needs and addressing them is the only successful route.

As a product marketing manager I often met with clients and prospects who wanted new features, then I would ask, "If I deliver you that new feature tomorrow, tell me how much time or money you will save. Will it be a time savings of 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, or 1 year?" The answers were always very revealing about what mattered in their business.

Hi Chris, You're very right. Synchronous customer and product development (SyncDev)in large companies requires a lot of choreography, especially with Sales. But, large company or small, a GM or CEO is the must-have sponsor. She's the only one who can put engineering, marketing, design, product management, and sales into one van.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
