Retweeted by Rags SrinivasanYou can't expect to take share by giving more of something customers don't value #prodmgmt http://t.co/UuXbLo63yL"How to make a TLA work for you" for $2000 - they are all the same http://t.co/hQmG76ZCUS"Your duty as motivational speaker is to leave people feeling uplifted" - err, it's about psychics, but same. http://t.co/hQmG76ZCUS"The future is a series of probabilities" - you wouldn't expect this from a psychic. #word #stat http://t.co/hQmG76ZCUS

@Pv @newsycbot isn't wonderful. Now the #abtesting should become pointlessI am hiring product management leaders with will and skill to build disruptive datacenter products
@mims @9to5mac it has sampling bias and intention is not same as follow thru. Only a conjoint can tell. #mrx
@mims or you should team with @dragansk who is a far better #MRX expert in teasing out our actual willingness to pay for features@mims of course http://t.co/GSVnHhhrUJ@mims you bring the audience together we can run conjoint analysis and find out marginal utility we assign for batteryIf self awareness is so important why so many lack it? Well, kind of self explanatory isn't it #management http://t.co/OAG3aBAoc9It's not the customer that will push phone makers to give longer lasting battery it's the marginal profit /@mims http://t.co/O6mnW1WljSOur One Wish? Longer Battery Lifeby @mims but are we willing to pay a premium for this utilitarian benefit? http://t.co/O6mnW1WljSThe longer the oil prices stay low the more we're going to make sticky decisions that lead to higher prices #econ101 http://t.co/HzvtmcH48SArbitrage happens at all levels from 🍕 to 🎰 #econ101 http://t.co/KwOZpSLgskHow Sunk Cost Fallacy Applies To Love : NPR #econ101 http://t.co/l96U5lDx80

If you're not asking for lurking variables you are asking for itSure you are data driven. Do you let in data that could falsify your thesis?Yoga, parking, driving, exercising, tweeting - we seem to be fundamentally mean people and bullies http://t.co/qkMla23vTCI don't run a $700B market cap biz but I tell them how to run their business. I am all powerful tech columnist.Nothing drives us to data more than being slighted by someone higher up in the food chain, however high up we are http://t.co/TGjDrUTu9i@mochi_wsj @WSJ where is the IPhone 6 around it to justify the price premium?@mims wait, didn't you wrote Monday we are all alikeDon't take pride in saying,"I call it as I see it". We call it as our cognitive biases make us see it.@mims so by frequentist method, probability of making it to this list is better than that of winning $520M PowerBall“Hey, we should try to joke and laugh more at our next meeting!" - cause-fusion http://t.co/kj0eqa7Sw7@mims is it more likely laughter is the effect of a healthy productive team than the cause? Too many luring variables here
Learn to be a leader and exude power with this simple trick http://t.co/xlXZ1zUDtE #BeAwesome@CharlesPassy @WSJ is that because of the general behavior of posting only the selected best moments of their lives?Someone wrote a book based on anecdotes calls into question another such book. Regardless his points are very valid. http://t.co/qt8HOa2RpcHiring for skills is easier than hiring for mindset and leadership
@mims @grayj_ i would agree until data shows otherwise“Humans, it turns out, are remarkably predictable” by @mims #measure #stat #analytics http://t.co/wbZjqQnogCWimps make 25% of universe and are its prime architects http://t.co/DDJl7hqIaZWhy nobody buys movie tickets online http://t.co/mQfZ3WjXai same reason why they are all priced the same - interchangeable

This time the premise is wrong as well, the acquirers are not interested in becoming tech companies@campione I wonder if the powerful ones are labeled as Best and credited with any attributes
@MissHatcher calling into attention lurking variables in claims since 2007It's the middle that gets squeezed. To disrupt make the incumbent the middle. Come high or come low
“Our minds are not well equipped to sort good sources from bad ones” http://t.co/zXg68BRrBR“@rshevlin Net Purchase Score:How many times you buy minus number of returns. Highly correlated with revenue.” #measure #Loyalty #BeAwesomeCritics like @rshevlin are calling this the one loyalty metric to track http://t.co/jfS9KnfFCo your mind will be blown. #BeAwesome@rshevlin whoa! That is the single metric to measure for sureAt some point we should look at likelihoods and not simply say, "that is just an opinion, it doesn't mean it is the only one that counts"
@rshevlin I have another - Net Promiscuity Score - measures how many times customers switch brands while they have a preferred oneYou don't take risk to be seen as risk taker. What business goal does it help? What is the opportunity cost? #prodmgmt #DecisionSciencesif it is not relevant to your customer what you see as your differentiator is really not #prodmgmt@rshevlin I am way ahead of this racket http://t.co/jfS9KnfFCo have my own bs metric
Point out the lurking variable in this claim https://t.co/yWQX49hxVW@mims you have any?@mims as in making things up :)Fast company editor unable to explain to on CNBC how they arrive at the ranking of most innovative companies - let alone why it mattersThose who publish list like "10 Most Innovative Companies", who and why are they publishing it for?

Powerful people are on Twitter and they have a bio.That doesn't mean I can become powerful with a bio like theirs.Some Instagram the food before eating some tweet about the silliness of the activity@rshevlin what? You want to take out the entire market?Since @rshevlin asked for it - what gurus can learn from Brian Williams? Don't make up things that are verifiable.@rshevlin I wager there will be 10 tomorrowAt $450M jackpot, and p(Jackpot)=1/176,000,000, and $2 ticker seems like one should play #Powerball@rshevlin move to valley and disruptSeriously you must be joking - https://t.co/ps2eaMwC8SThere are indeed two markets. @WSJ said it http://t.co/2RZ48oJrIg and now @nytimes. @mims I stand corrected http://t.co/3kf0cA28LbFor MVP you can fake with a product; for Minimum Viable Versioning you can do the same. #prodmgmt #pricing https://t.co/Ci2QsonkJwWhy Do Many Reasonable People Doubt Science? http://t.co/B3SAdHVl3l via @avinash.
