PMI Nashville October 2021 Luncheon Webinar – The Berlin Airlift
October 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
- The Berlin Airlift was the first round of the Cold War, and a shooting war with the Soviet Union was a very real possibility. In early 1948 the Soviets closed off all land and water transport routes, to Berlin, from western Germany. This left only a slender air bridge to supply the western allies and 2.4 million German civilians in West Berlin. The western political and military establishments believed the airlift would fail. But one man had done this before and believed that an airlift could succeed. This is the story of one of the most difficult but ultimately successful projects of the 20th century.
- In this session we will go over the fundamentals of product management; first we will discuss the three elements of determining if what you are doing has value/relevance. Second, we will discuss the product lifecycle and actions and reactions that happen at different stages. From there we will discuss techniques to determine who is your customer and their motivations (Personas). We will sprinkle in the criticality of cognitive diversity in the ideation process and not getting caught up in confirmation basis. We will end with a detailed discussion iterative styles of testing to get real time data straight from the source, aka your customers
