Who was it that said, ´´It takes a village…´´? They may not have been talking about being a product manager, but they might as well have been. Life has become so complex that product managers can no longer make their product a success just by their own efforts. Today it takes the help of one or more partners to get your product to where it needs to be. Are you going to be ready to work with those partners? What you´ll find inside: Force majeure: what is it and why care? Four things product managers need to know about buying another company Netflix teaches product managers a lesson Partnerships that don’t work out for product managers One of the first things that product managers learn about working with partners is that we always need to have a signed contract with them. An often overlooked part of such contracts is the ´´force majeure´´ clause - product managers need to know what this really means. Product managers can learn by watching how other firms, such as Netflix, work with partners to become successful. Product managers need to decide if they are going to be willing to work with other firms. Yes, they will be giving up some control of their product. However, like Taylor Swift and her battles with partners, they may be gaining more control over the product´s success in the end. What product managers need to realize is that not all partnerships will work out. Even at giant companies like Amazon, there will be partnerships that initially appear to be a good idea but which go bad. Learning how to use partners to tap into new markets, like India´s Paytm mobile payment system has done, is the key to making your partnerships work out for you. 1. Language: English.

For astronaut Ron Garan, living on the International Space Station was a powerful, transformative experience - one that he believes holds the key to solving our problems here on Earth. On space walks and through windows, Garan was struck by the stunning beauty of the Earth from space but sobered by knowing how much needed to be done to help this troubled planet. And yet on the International Space Station, Garan, a former fighter pilot, was working work side by side with Russians, who only a few years before were ´´the enemy´´. If 15 nationalities could collaborate on one of the most ambitious, technologically complicated undertakings in history, surely we can apply that kind of cooperation and innovation toward creating a better world. That spirit is what Garan calls the ´´orbital perspective´´. Garan vividly conveys what it was like learning to work with a diverse group of people in an environment only a handful of human beings have ever known. But more importantly he describes how he and others are working to apply the orbital perspective here at home, embracing new partnerships and processes to promote peace and combat hunger, thirst, poverty, and environmental destruction. This audiobook is a call to action for each of us to care for the most important space station of all: planet Earth. You don´t need to be an astronaut to have the orbital perspective. Garan´s message of elevated empathy is an inspiration to all who seek a better world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Don Hagen.
