  • Another memorial day another reflection

    Another Memorial Day is here and it is always a time of reflection for me. I’ve written on it several years the past. Yes, I have friends who died serving in wars with me.Yes, we lost those wars. And now I have friends who served alongside me whose families continue to be at risk from…

  • Brilliance in the Basics – Leadership in Product Management

    In the ongoing iteration and re-iteration of what I’ve learned, how I communicate it, what I learn anew and how I convey it, we have another release.
