The Shortest Distance Between You and Your New Product, 2nd Edition
Do your products take too long to get to market? The Rapid Learning Cycles framework is an approach to product development that has helped hundreds of teams get their products to market faster. When you can get your product into customers' hands faster, you see your vision brought to life sooner. You can beat any competition to market with your best ideas. You can shorten the time it takes before your company begins to earn money from your ideas. You can reduce development costs, making it easier for investors, executive teams and program sponsors to buy into your ideas. If your idea is meant to fail, it will fail faster, freeing you up to go on to your next idea. All along the way, you'll build knowledge that will accelerate your progress now, and speed up the teams that will develop the next product even more. The Rapid Learning Cycles framework was developed experientially, building on Katherine's work with four different companies in four different industries that all needed to get their best ideas to market faster. Then Katherine began teaching this framework to teams all over the world. She followed up with every early adopter team, and used her observations to continue to refine the framework into a flexible approach to help teams get tangible products to market faster. Agile is not enough for tangible products. Agile software development experts may say that hardware teams should "just use Agile" or "just use Scrum." But hardware teams have not had consistent success with this approach, because some of the assumptions of Agile Software Development don't apply to products that must obey the laws of physics, chemistry and biology. Software and service teams can roll out updates that impact current customers immediately, and decisions can be reversed if they don't work as expected. When your product requires a supply chain, production process and distribution network, you will make decisions that you will live with, as long as you have products in the field that are

Be Fit to Ski
Every winter, world-class racers schuss down race courses at speeds upwards of 80 mph, going all-out for 2 minutes of racing. Die-hard recreational skiers spend weekends exhausting themselves to catch that last chair-lift ride. Professional ski instructors devote their free time to honing skills in technique and tactics to meet specific national standards. Regardless of the number of days spend on snow, all participate in a sport that demands a balanced combination of peak conditioning in targeted fitness areas, called performance abilities- endurance, strength, power, speed and agility. As part of a thesis for the completion of a Masters degree in kinesiology, Be Fit to Ski incorporates over 30 years of research on alpine skiing and athletic training toward the development of a year-round fitness program. The idea of periodization, a block-training approach using microcycles and macrocycles, forms the basis of four training phases that begin in the spring and culminate with the end of the ski season. Divided into three sections, Basics of Training, Performance Abilities, and The Training Year, this book provides all the necessary answers to develop year- round fitness training for skiing that will result in quicker skill improvement and guaranteed more vertical per day.
