Product Knowledge Evolution

Let’s talk about a wonderful trend for all consumer products. Rather than for any specific product, I’m talking about the meta of products.

With the information and communication age has come a new wonderful truth about products. The truth today is that, most often, people will know which product is best.

People used to be stuck making uninformed decisions. That’s no longer the case. This evolution of knowledge gives product development teams greater incentive to create only quality products.

Companies like Apple and Netflix who focus on building quality products are, of course, seeing success. I’m willing to bet on that trend. Investing in quality is more important than ever.

In addition, for some product areas (e.g. software) costs remain relatively the same whether you build a good or bad product.

So keep building great products!
