Lean Project Teams

Probably about time that I share a little bit of how we build stuff at Cospace. Here’s how we staff our project and startup teams.

Roles & Actions (blue) – Project Management, Customer Dev, Product Dev, & Business Dev
Focus (red) – Areas of responsibilities
Metric (green) – Profitability, Revenue, Users/Customers, Cost-to-Acquire-a-Customer

Take a stand or take a seat

Like thousands of sites around the country and world, my blog and my coworking company website (Cospace) are going dark here in about 2 hours. It’s a very small gesture to a very large problem — government interference with free enterprise.

Stand up for free enterprise by watching this short video, get informed and express your opinion to your elected officials.

Innovation in Education

If you don’t think things are changing – FAST! – in education take a look at TeamTreehouse, Skillshare, OpenStudy, and a host of other social-infused education startups. We have a couple brewing ourselves at Cospace that you’ll see more of 2012. It makes you wonder what higher education is thinking (or not rethinking) right now:

“Many in higher ed believe the analogy with businesses doesn’t apply to them. They think they have a corner on the credential business and right now a credential is the ticket to most good jobs.”

What is an Entrepreneur?

This is such a powerful story from Cameron Herold, a lifelong entrepreneur from a family of entrepreneurs. Regardless of what you do for a living (and we’re all different from head to toe),  stop trying to fit your round self into that square peg. Figure out what motivates you, what you’re made of, what you want and go get it! It really is that simple. Enjoy and thank you TED Talks for making these videos and making them so easy to share.
