Discussion Topic:

Value For Us From Amazon’s Working Backwards

In March, Ujj Nath, CEO of myKaarma – and a member of ABL-Tech West LA, shared with us the positive impact a new book, Working Backwards, is having on his SaaS company. Given Ujj has already grown his start-up into a successful multi-million dollar business, the Group was very interested in learning more about “how it works.”

Last week, Lisa Perrine, EdD, CEO of Cibola Systems, who “absolutely loves trying (and failing) at new things – no risk, no reward,” used the visionary-future dated Press Release approach detailed in the book’s title chapter to make her Strategic Advisory Presentation to the Table. While it was a major modification of our usual approach, the Group responded with seven pages of great feedback to a business concept she’s launching at Cibola. Lisa related she was “definitely inspired by the group’s insights, and has already started working on Press Release v.3. :)”

So, we’ve prepared a Briefing on the key material in Working Backwards, to open our May Round Table. Our Discussion questions will include:

  • How likely are you to use any of the key ideas in Working Backwards in your business in the next twelve months?
  • Which ideas specifically?
  • How might they translate resulting “disruptive competitive advantages” into more profitable growth for your business?
  • Why?
  • How likely are you to read this book?, and
  • How likely do you think you are to share it with others in your organization?

Then, as always, we’ll look to hear and discuss, “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?

We’ll also be serving as Strategic Advisory Board Members to ABL’s Greg Hindson, as he makes his Featured Member Presentation.

Greg Hindson is President and CEO of Nortridge Software LLC, a leading software provider for loan-servicing companies. Greg is also CTO/Chief Architect of the Nortridge Loan System product. Nortridge Software provides lenders and loan servicers with the automation needed to more profitably originate, service, collect, and report on loan portfolios. Nortridge’s partners include Accion, Allison Payment Systems, defi Solutions, First Assoc., Merchant Partners, MicroBilt, Oracle, and Van Wagenen Financial Services.
